Livingston took a cheeky swipe at Celtic with their full-time tweet after being denied three points against the champions.

Tom Rogic’s late equaliser secured a massive point for the Hoops at the Tony Macaroni Arena. It came after Livi had seemed to ride out wave after wave of Celtic pressure last night.

It looked certain that we were set for our first domestic defeat of 2020. Livingston were managing to keep the ball in our half towards the 90-minute mark, and much of the belief had been sucked out of the support before Rogic’s late strike.

And it appears as though one Livi media team member was a tad gutted with the goal. Here’s a look at their full-time tweet from last night:

A massive night in the title race

It’s difficult to know whether this is just a bit of banter or whether there’s some passive-aggressiveness in it. We’ll go with the former and give them the benefit of the doubt.

However, Celtic fans certainly weren’t celebrating a 2-2 draw at Livingston last night. We were celebrating the fact that we had just gained a crucial point to take us further ahead of our title-rivals.

In fact, what last night’s point did was ensure that Rangers need a four-game swing on Celtic within nine games to win the league. That’s just not happening, regardless of whether they win their game in-hand or not.

Celtic have St Mirren at home on Saturday whilst Rangers take the trip to Ross County on Sunday. There’s a genuine chance, and a good one at that, that the Ibrox side will be trailing us by 16 points heading into their match in Dingwall. That’s absolutely colossal.

Any Celtic fans that got a tad overzealous and ran onto the pitch last night were celebrating the fact they had more or less won the Premiership for the ninth consecutive time.

But our record at the Tony Macaroni isn’t getting any better. Three trips there and no wins doesn’t read well, and that’s something we need to improve upon next season.

Did last night feel like a win for you? Was it a case of it being a missed opportunity for the Hoops? Let us know in the discussion forum below.
