Celtic equalled their own 100-year-old British record of 62 domestic games unbeaten but laboured to a draw at home to Steve Clarke's Kilmarnock. 

Celtic's previous record run ended on 21 April 1917 after a 2-0 defeat by Kilmarnock and the Ayrshire team threatened to spoil the party again.

Celtic were held at bay by a rigid Killie defence until Leigh Griffiths pounced to fire past goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald shortly before the break.

Jordan Jones (right) equalised after following up his own shot against the post.

It means Clarke has started his spell as Kilmarnock boss with back-to-back draws away to both sides of the Old Firm after their midweek meeting with Rangers.

Comments

Steve Clarke: "We had to defend very well all game. We were organised and worked hard to limit Celtic.  We spoke about not threatening enough at half time and obviously you have to come out a bit more when you go a goal behind.  We showed a bit of quality to get us up the pitch and get the goal which, on the balance of the second half, we deserved. If we continue to work hard and stay organised, the players can show the talent that they've got and we can slowly start to climb the table."

Brendon Rodgers: "It was frustrating. That was partly us, but it was partly Kilmarnock as well because they defended very well with lots of bodies in that final third of the field and we just struggled to break it down. Kilmarnock had very obviously come to get those 11 guys behind the ball and then to maybe get some joy on the counter attack. Their goal comes after the boy Jones hits the post and he reacted quickest and had a nice little combination, It was probably the best attacking moment of the game.
