And that's that.

We're away to get the reaction from Claudio Ranieri and Brendan Rodgers, let's check on the fitness of all of Celtic's players before that big Champions League game in midweek. 

See you later!

Leicester win the shootout

Celtic goalscorer Eoghan O'Connell: "It's great for us, we are further on than Leicester and that game can only help us with our Champions League tie on Wednesday."

Leicester win the shootout

Leicester captain Wes Morgan: "That's what Riyad Mahrez is all about, he can score a goal from anything."

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri

There are plenty of smiles all around, Brendan Rodgers seems happy enough as he shakes hands and exchanges words with Claudio Ranieri.

Kasper Schmeichel waves his team-mates over to go and celebrate with the travelling support. 

So that's a bonus point for Leicester, six out of six from the spot. That penalty shootout may be the best thing the champions of England take from tonight's game.

A reminder of these odd rules. The winner of this shootout will get two points, the losers get one. Which is the same as drawing. Which is what they've done.

So nobody really loses out do they?

It only felt like 850 mins

Well I say, this game has been going on for a while apparently... #889mins #bbcfootball

I do not predict the Foxes to keep ownership of the Premier League trophy directly because stories like Leicester's cannot be written again in as little as twelve months from when they were first wrote. Notwithstanding, a finish in the top six would be nothing to be upset at.

Chris Green, Huddersfield

Celtic 1-1 Leicester

Shinji Okazaki

Celtic sub Tom Rogic weaves into the area. Is that a hand which blocks his cross? Not much protest as Shinji Okazaki then heads over at the other end.

Penalties? Looks like it. 

Celtic 1-1 Leicester

The safe-standing section of Celtic Park looks like a lot of fun. They are all doing 'the Poznan' in time to a chant. Nobody's watching the game but there's nothing much happening. 

Celtic 1-1 Leicester

Just over 32,500 inside Celtic Park for this one. A long way from full, but a lot of people for a friendly, if you ask me.

Celtic 1-1 Leicester

It was special Gary!

Leicester now look tired as Celtic keep the ball for long periods. Scott Allan has looked particularly impressive since he came on. 

Celtic 1-1 Leicester

Brendan Rodgers

Into the last 10 minutes. If it stays a draw we will have a pre-season penalty shootout - madness. The winners would get two points and the losers one.

Follow me?

Celtic 1-1 Leicester

You don't get many chances to type this so I will, Efe Ambrose makes a great tackle! Ahmed Musa is one touch away from being clean through, Ambrose has to make a guts-and-glory challenge on the halfway line and he gets it spot on. 

Celtic 1-1 Leicester

Claudio Ranieri

I've lost count of the number of changes made by both sides now, but it's no more than you'd expect at this stage of their seasons. Celtic have a long flight booked in for Monday. To Kazakhstan, and beyond?


Celtic off: Scott Brown, Leigh Griffiths, Stuart Armstrong

Celtic on:Tom Rogic, Ryan Christie, Scott Allan

Teething problems?


Joe Baldwin: Drinkwater keeps giving Musa the service he always gives Vardy when he plays. Musa keeps giving up the chase and complaining!


Celtic 1-1 Leicester

Riyad Mahrez in space again, he beats his man and lats the ball off, only to see Shinji Okazaki whack a shot into his shins.

Mahrez is clapped off by all fans as he is replaced by Christian Fuchs. 

Celtic 1-1 Leicester

Riyad Mahrez

I think it's fair to say that Riyad Mahrez would rip the SPL up...

After a good spell of huff and puff from the hosts they leave Mahrez one-on-one at the back and he glides past the last defender like he wasn't there. Mahrez waits, it's what he does, and his cutback for Ahmed Musa is inches behind the Nigerian. That was so nearly a tap-in. The Leicester City counter attack looks alive and well. 


Celtic 1-1 Leicester

A flurry of changes. We have kept one Leonardo on the pitch though which is good to see.

Celtic on: James Forrest, Stefan Johansen, Nadir Ciftci and Leonardo Fasan

Celtic off: Craig Gordon, Patrick Roberts, Callum McGregor, Moussa Dembele

Leicester on: Robert Huth, Marcin Wasilewski, Shinji Okazaki

Leicester off: Wes Morgan, Leo Ulloa, Luis Hernandez

Celtic 1-1 Leicester

Eoghan O'Connell won't score many better goals than that for Celtic! A reminder that we go to penalties on 90 minutes if it stays level. A host of subs again, hang on and I'll wrap them up. 

GOAL - Celtic 1-1 Leicester

Oh yes! Another beauty to light up this pre-season friendly! Celtic work the ball patiently into the area, they have two shots blocked at close range and Scott Brown's effort pings out to the edge of the area.

Centre-half Eoghan O'Connell shouts for it good and early, almost runs around the ball to get it onto his right foot, and then curls a low shot, side-footed, in off the inside of the post.

Brilliant strike!

Celtic 0-1 Leicester

Brendan Rodgers

A good spell of play from Celtic as they work the ball from left to right but it ends with Leigh Girffiths slashing a shot over the top. The midweek game in Astana is obviously of more importance but this final half hour is still a test for the hosts. 

Celtic 0-1 Leicester

How fast is Ahmed Musa? VERY.

Craig Gordon comes out of his area to clear a ball but the Celtic keeper is embarrassed as Musa appears from nowhere to steal the ball from his toes. Forced wide, Musa looks for company in the middle but Celtic get the ball clear.

Musa and Jamie Vardy up front? A back four's nightmare. 

Celtic 0-1 Leicester

Emilio Izaguirre

Emilio Izaguirre has been Celtic's main out ball at left-back and when Riyad Mahrez doesn't track him he is able to put in a teasing cross but Wes Morgan heads it clear.
