Celtic Draw As Scott Brown Sent-Off For Hitting Corkman With Flailing Arm

Celtic Draw As Scott Brown Sent-Off For Hitting Corkman With Flailing Arm

At a snow-covered Almondvale on Wednesday night, a fortnight on from their trip to Dubai, Celtic drew 2-2 with a second-string Livingston side, further adding to the malaise surrounding the club. It is the fourth consecutive Premiership game without a win for Celtic.

Ciaron Brown gave Livingston the lead after 15 minutes. Unmarked, the Northern Ireland international headed Julien Serrano's free kick past Vasilios Barkas.

Celtic hit back to lead 2-1 before the break through goals from Mohamed Elyounoussi and Nir Bitton.

In the 60th minute, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas side-footed an equaliser for Livingston and it was there the score remained until the final whistle.

The action was not over though. In the 83rd minute, Scott Brown was shown a red card for hitting Corkman Jaze Kabia with a swinging arm.

Kabia, who joined Livingston on a two-and-a-half year deal from Shelbourne earlier this month, was making debut for the club off the bench.

Brown was only on the pitch five minutes when referee Willie Collum showed him the card.
