It’s all over at Pittodrie as the champions drop two points in the title race. It’s now three games without a win and more questions for Celtic boss Neil Lennon.
Goal for Aberdeen!
Two minutes into injury-time and Ferguson has tied things up. Bain doesn’t move as Ferguson slots the ball home at the keeper’s left-hand side.
Penalty to Aberdeen!
McLennan is taken down by McGregor, Cosgrove hits the ball with the loose ball but Collum points to the spot.
Ajer takes a chance inside his own penalty box and his robbed by McCrorie. Cosgrove hits the loose ball on the turn and fires just wide of goal.
Nervy moment for Celtic as Aberdeen have a free-kick on the edge of the area, but Ferguson lifts his effort clear over the crossbar.
The champions make another change as David Turnbull comes on for Rogic.
Goal for Celtic!
Christie converts the penalty, sending a low shot to the goalkeeper’s left.
Incredibly, it’s Aberdeen 2, Celtic 3.
There are 12 minutes remaining.
Penalty to Celtic!
Would you believe it? Elyounoussi gets himself in front of Tommie Hoban and hits the deck. Collum points to the spot.
Goal for Celtic!
Griffiths has come to Celtic’s rescue again. The striker receives the ball from Rogic inside the penalty box. He steps back on to his stronger left-foot and fires his finish right into the top corner.
Aberdeen may be unhappy with a challenge on Cosgrove by Duffy in the build up.
Christie got himself on the end of a Rogic cross. The midfielder was stretching for the ball and couldn’t get enough power on it to truly trouble Lewis in goal.
Still 2-1 to the Dons.
Ntcham is replaced by Brown, while Leigh Griffiths comes on for Albian Ajeti.
Great chance for Aberdeen to make it 3-1 as Cosgrove is able to out-muscle Laxalt to get on to a cross. The ball just won’t break for the striker with Laxalt able to get his body in front of the ball despite being on the deck. He has to go backwards where McCrorie fires well wide.
