A dramatic 89th-minute equaliser by substitute Alex Fisher gave Inverness a smash-and-grab 2-2 Ladbrokes Premiership draw with Celtic at the Tulloch Caledonian stadium yesterday.

Returning midfielder Tom Rogic gave the Hoops the lead in the 17th minute before loan forward Billy King levelled with a powerful drive 10 minutes later.

In the 33rd minute Scott Sinclair kept his goal-a-game record in the league going with a fine finish and only Inverness keeper Owain Fon Williams' fine display - and the woodwork - prevented the Hoops adding to their lead after the break.

Fisher, on for Lonsana Doumbouya, then dramatically headed the equaliser to take the Highlanders off the bottom of the table.

Brendan Rodgers' side go three points clear of Hearts at the top of the table with a game in hand and will look at this as a blip as they go for a sixth successive title.

Meanwhile, Jayden Stockley set Aberdeen on the way to their second Premiership victory of the season yesterday when he headed home against Dundee at Dens Park three minutes after coming off the bench.

The former Bournemouth striker converted Jonny Hayes' 77th-minute cross, and Kenny McLean's 88th-minute penalty sealed a 3-1 win to send Aberdeen into fourth place above Rangers on goal difference ahead of the pair's meeting at Pittodrie next weekend.

Kevin Holt had given Dundee a 13th-minute lead but James Maddison levelled six minutes later.
