Celtic were handed a penalty in the 38th minute however when Andy Rose clipped Christie in the box, but Motherwell goalkeeper Mark Gillespie was equal to Leigh Griffiths' shot from the spot.

The champions were heading back to the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership until Danny Johnson struck from a hard angle in the 88th minute to earn Motherwell a 1-1 draw.

If the Bhoys can pick up the three points and their Glasgow rivals Rangers fail to see off Aberdeen elsewhere on the evening, Brendan Rodgers' men will go back to the top of the league with the heavy Christmas schedule fast approaching.

"It is a testament to the players in the two and a half years we have been here, the confidence and resilience".

The Celtic boss said: "Not a very good performance".

'We scored a good goal and then didn't take the chance with the penalty and also had a good goal ruled out from Filip Benkovic.

"But still at that stage I wasn't so happy with our positioning and level of our game". In the second half our positioning was better but we were still too loose.

"But from our perspective it's a poor goal to lose".

Two Greg Stewart goals earned a victory over Livingston which, coupled with Rangers and Celtic dropping points, meant they moved to the summit.

"We are very hungry to sustain this period of our game and what we are trying to win".

When asked if his players took the points for granted, he said: "I don't think they took it for granted, it was down to concentration". It looked not only accidental but also outside the penalty area, however Lewis threw himself to his right to push Sinclair's penalty behind for a corner, which was defended by the Pittrodrie side.

Speaking to BBC Scotland after the game, Rodgers claimed it was the sweetest success of them all: "This is the most satisfying because it wasn't an easy start to the season for us". We're always hungry for more.

Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson praised his side after losing both Peter Hartley and Liam Donnelly to injury in the opening 14 minutes.
