A last-minute equaliser from Jon Daly gave ten-man Dundee United a 1-1 draw with Celtic.
The Scottish champions had looked set to grab all three points after Shunsuke Nakamura's had given them the lead just after half-time.
However, Daly was on hand to strike a well-taken equaliser in the final minute.
Celtic were lucky not to be losing at the interval with United hitting the bar through Steven Robb.
The midfielder's cross turned into a shot as it deceived Artur Boruc in the Celtic goal - but he was relieved to see the ball bounce away to safety.
Seemingly with some stern Gordon Strachan words ringing in their ears, Celtic came out for the second half and took the lead almost immediately.
David McCracken fouled Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink 25 yards from goal and it was left to Japanese star Nakamura who stepped up to curl home a trademark effort.
The home side refused to lie down and Barry Robson flashed a shot wide - although that was just about his last contribution as he was sent off.
However, United made light of their numerical disadvantage as Daly secured a point.
A long ball from defence was not dealt with by the Celtic defence and Daly met the ball on the volley and slammed his effort past Boruc.
