Tim Clancy and Paul Cairney scored in the second half as Hibernian rallied twice to secure a 2-2 draw against Celtic on Saturday at Parkhead in the Scottish Premier League.

Mikael Lustig handed Celtic its first lead in the 10th minute, and an own goal in the 69th restored a one-goal lead for the league champions. Clancy answered the first goal eight minutes after half and Cairney responded to the own goal just five minutes later for Hibs.

Celtic maintained its unbeaten record with two draws and two wins to stay atop the standings on goal differential. Hibs is second with two wins and two draws in five matches.

Lustig scored the opener off a corner kick from Paddy McCourt early, but Hibs answered after a defensive miscue after half when Clancy scored. James McPake was at fault when he directed a Lustig ball into his own net midway into the second, but Cairney finished from inside the box to split the points.

Elsewhere in Scotland on Saturday,Aberdeen tied St. Mirren, 0-0, Ross County stayed unbeaten with a win against four draws in a 0-0 tie against Kilmarnock, and winless side St. Johnstone and Dundee United tied, 0-0.
