BRENDAN RODGERS stood up to be counted as fans reacted angrily to Celtic’s dramatic 1-1 draw with Aberdeen at Pittodrie this afternoon.

There was the anticipated backlash from the supporters after two points were carelessly dropped against their managerless hosts.

It took a goal from £3million German recruit Niclas Kuhn to salvage a draw for the champions after Bojan Miovski had put the Dons ahead five minutes after the turnaround with a classic sucker-punch.

Rodgers saw a Luis Palma effort ruled out early in the encounter after a three-minute VAR review and the Honduran, Paulo Bernardo and Matt O’Riley struck woodwork against the team who sacked ex-Celt Barry Robson during the week and had caretaker Peter Leven in the dug-out.

THE OPENER…Bojan Miovski puts the Dons into the lead with Celtic duo Maik Nawrocki and Liam Scales helpless.

THE EQUALISER…Nicolas Kuhn fires in gis first goal for the champions to rescue a point.

A clearly frustrated Celtic gaffer, speaking to Sky Sports, admitted: “There is lots of games to go. We have to sort it out on the field.

“That is the reality of it. It’s my job as the manager to ensure we get to the levels we need consistently. We’ve had a good run up to the break and come back and the Cup performance, which you would expect, was good.

“But the last couple of performances have not been to the level we want it to be. But that is for us to sort out.”
The Hoops toiled in the fading moments of last week’s 1-0 home win over Ross County and it took a late save from Joe Hart to deny the Highlanders a point.
And the 36-year-old 75 times-capped England international keeper repeated the feat against the Dons with a brilliant stop to deny Graeme Shinnie the opportunity to make the day even more miserable for the visitors.
