  1. Cheerio

    FT: Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    I'll leave you with this image of the melee that followed Scott Brown's red card challenge on Liam Boyce.

    It sums up the madness of the last few moments in Dingwall.

    A valuable point for County but the penalty for the late equaliser was just ridiculous - as was Brown's ugly challenge.

    Tune into Sportscene (BBC Two Scotland at 18:00) to see the action.

    Enjoy the rest of your Easter Sunday...

    Ross County and Celtic drew 2-2
  2. It was a bad challenge - Boyce

    FT: Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    Ross County goal hero Liam Boyce on BBC Sportsound:

    "The Celtic players were all crowding round the ball and trying to delay it [the penalty] a bit and put pressure on but I was always thinking about sticking it to the bottom left."

    On the red card for Scott Brown...

    "I was waiting on the challenge coming, trying to buy us a free kick to take the pressure off. I didn't realise how strong he was coming in and thankfully my leg wasn't planted on the ground.

    "It was a bad challenge - he caught me high up on the shin and it's swollen now. But listen, it happens in games. I caught him just before."

  3. Post update

    FT: Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    Pundits Steven Thompson and Michael Stewart will be reviewing the weekend action on Sportscene (BBC Two Scotland from 18:00). The last few minutes of today's game will no doubt feature prominently.

    They will also be taking a look at Motherwell's third goal yesterday. Did it cross the line?

    Former Scotland striker on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: "It's the worst dive I've ever seen in all my years watching football. It's an absolute embarrassment

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: There was a lack of responsibility from Scott Brown. That was the young Scott Brown, not the experienced player he is today
  6. Penalty a 'horrendous decision' - Rodgers

    FT: Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers talking to BBC Sportsound

    "It's a very disappointing end to a game we dominated throughout.

    "We had good control and then the points are taken from us by a horrendous decision. I've seen some bad decisions up here but that's one of the worst.

    "Referees have a tough job but I don't know what he was seeing. The linesman needs to help him or else why are they there?

    "There's no way Erik Sviatchenko makes any attempt to get the ball."

  7. 'I can understand Celtic's anger and disappointment'

    FT: Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    Ross County manager Jim McIntyre talking to BBC Sportsound: 

    "Obviously the penalty is the key talking point, followed by Scott Brown's red card.

    "Alex is expecting contact and he's on his way down when the defender pulls out. It's not a penalty and I can fully understand Celtic's anger and disappointment.

    "The red card is reckless and that's probably down to frustration with the referee. It's not a nice way for the game to end.

    "I thought we were better in the second half in terms of laying a glove on Celtic higher up the pitch and we've picked up a great point."

  8. Post update

    FT: Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    The TV is showing replay after replay of the penalty incident. It's such a blatant dive from Alex Schalk. The Celtic defender, Erik Sviatchenko, is not even close to him.

    It's an appalling blunder from the officials.

    Will the SFA take retrospective action against the County forward?

  9. Get Involved

    @bbcsportscot & facebook.com/bbcsportscotland

    Brendan Loftus:  Absolute disgrace. The diving player should be suspended himself for bringing the game into disrepute & as far as the ref is concerned, back to lower leagues for him.  

    Colm Kilbane: The only way to get rid of diving is for people to put pressure on the diver, not the referee. 

    Tom McMaster: Well done Staggies.

  10. Brown likely to miss Old Firm semi-final

    FT: Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    This was the wild sliding challenge from Scott Brown that felled Liam Boyce and resulted in a straight red card for the Celtic midfielder.

    Perhaps more importantly, the nature of the challenge is likely to deprive the Premiership champions of their captain for Sunday's Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers.

    If referee Don Robertson deems the moment of recklessness to be violent conduct, Brown will be unavailable for the Hampden showdown.

  11. 'Five cup finals' to come for County

    FT: Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    Ross County midfielder Michael Gardyne on BBC Sportsound:

    "It's a massive point. We need to take confidence from this into the last five games of the season.

    "We had a good shape in the first half but we didn't do enough on the ball. In the second half we got more crosses into the box and got our rewards.

    "We'll enjoy a wee break and then it's five cup finals. If we play like we did today, we'll be fine."

  12. Post update

    FT: Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    It appears Liam Boyce was among a host of players booked in the closing stages and that means he will be suspended for the Highland derby on 28 April.

  13. 'Brown's absolutely lunged in'

    FT: Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    Barry Wilson

    BBC Scotland at Victoria Park

    "It started earlier between Boyce and Brown. Boyce had a little niggle at Brown, who then kicked out. Referee Don Robertson didn’t do anything about the kick-out, and then Brown’s absolutely lunged in from nowhere on Boyce. Robertson had no option but to produce the red card."

  14. FULL-TIME Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    A big point for Ross County, who stay eighth in the table and pull three points away from the play-off place.

    Huge controversy surrounding the late penalty.

    Referee Don Robertson is going to be embarrassed when he sees it.

  15. RED CARD

    Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    Ridiculous... Scott Brown is sent off for a horrible lunge on County goalscorer on Liam Boyce.

    Does that mean the Celtic captain is suspended for next weekend's Scottish Cup semi final?

  16. 'That was an absolute dive'

    Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    Pat Bonner

    Former Celtic goalkeeper on BBC Sportsound

    "That was an absolute dive, there’s no question. The referee has got that totally, totally wrong and he’s in a good position to see it."

  17. GOAL Ross County 2-2 Celtic

    Liam Boyce

    The Celtic players are appalled as Alex Schalk takes a dive under pressure from Erik Sviatchenko and Don Robertson points to the spot.

    After a long delay, Liam Boyce keeps a cool head and clips the ball in the opposite direction of the diving Craig Gordon.

  18. PENALTY

    Ross County 1-2 Celtic

    Alex Schalk goes down. No contact whatsoever...

  19. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Ross County 1-2 Celtic

    Stuart Armstrong lines up a free kick from 20 yards. The Celtic midfielder gets it up and over the defensive wall but it cracks off the crossbar, with Scott Fox grasping at fresh air.

  20. Post update

    Ross County 1-2 Celtic

    County make that second change, with Christopher Routis on for an absolutely knackered Jim O'Brien.
