  8. FULL-TIME Inverness CT 1-3 Celtic

    Celtic open up a seven-point gap at the top of the Scottish Premiership after a solid second-half display gives them victory at the Caledonian Stadium.

    Inverness battled hard in the opening period but could not sustain that after the break.

    Celtic have a third. Carlton Cole takes a heavy touch when retrieving a rebound after a Leigh Griffiths shot is saved and the ball trickles into the net of Danny Devine.

    The Inverness players feel there may have been a handball by Cole but referee William Collum awards the goal.

    Quote Message: Celtic have lost their attacking grip and Inverness CT look set up to go for this with Sho-Silva and Mbuyi-Mutombo on. There could still be a twist here but the danger for the home side is, if they leave gaps, Celtic are equipped to exploit them"
  17. CLOSE!

    Inverness almost level again as a corner delivery deflects off Mikael Lustig and only a goal-line clearance by Stefan Johansen prevents an own goal.

  18. Double substitution

    Inverness manager John Hughes rings the changes with James Vincent and Iain Vigurs coming off and Andrea Mbuyi-Mutombo and Tobi Sho-Silva entering the fray.

  19. Post update

    Celtic forward Anthony Stokes expressed his frustration at not being in the matchday squad on social media earlier today.

    Manager Ronny Deila indicated the club would raise the matter with the striker.

    Quote Message: Celtic well on top now and the introduction of Scott Allan seems to have generated more threat. Griffiths now operating behind Carlton Cole and the powerful striker almost had a dream start with a close-range header tipped over. There seems to be more goals here for Celtic, who all of a sudden look in the mood"
  21. GREAT SAVE!

    Carlton Cole has a chance to mark his debut with a goal after Callum McGregor lifts a teasing cross to the back post from the right but Owain Fon Williams palms over the striker's downward header.

  22. Substitution and debut

    And now Celtic make their first change with Carlton Cole coming to make his debut for the club, Tom Rogic making way.

  23. GOAL Inverness CT 1-2 Celtic (Griffiths)

    Leigh Griffiths puts Celtic ahead but that goal owed a lot to Scott Allan and Kieran Tierney's work on the left, with the latter crossing low for the striker to score.

  24. Post update

    The Inverness fans vent their frustration after Miles Storey is flagged offside after getting clear of the Celtic defence.

  25. Substitution

    Celtic bring on midfielder Scott Allan and withdraw Stuart Armstrong.

    Quote Message: Ross County defender Richard Foster on Sportsound makes a good point. Are Celtic being too cagey with two sitters when Inverness CT only have one up front? Possibly defensive weakness is the reason but an extra offensive threat may help the visitors cause more problems
  27. Post update

    Not as much fluency from either side at the start of this second half.

  28. KICK-OFF

    The second half begins with Celtic kicking off.

  31. HALF-TIME Inverness CT 1-1 Celtic

    An open first half draws to a close. Both sides on target in the opening 45 minutes and there could have been more than the two goals as players admirably coped with the conditions. An intriguing second half beckons.

  32. Post update

    Quote Message: The game had gone flat as Inverness CT contained Celtic's threat and great pressure on the ball allowed Storey to outpace the Celtic defence. He showed fantastic composure to react when Gordon parried. Bitton close with a long range effort from distance as Celtic almost hit back" from Martin Dowden BBC Scotland at the Caledonian Stadium

  33. CLOSE!

    Nir Bitton fancies his chances from long range and swerves a powerful shot narrowly wide of the Inverness goal.

  34. GOAL Inverness CT 1-1 Celtic (Storey)

    It's all square again. Miles Storey is chased by two Celtic defenders as he bursts through the middle and Jozo Simunovic's challenge knocks the ball towards goal. Craig Gordon makes the save but Storey is on hand to fire in the rebound.

    Quote Message: Credit to Inverness CT, who have worked their way back into the game. A period of pressure didn't overly threaten Craig Gordon in goal but the visitors have looked susceptible to crosses into dangerous areas. That route also looks like paying dividends for Celtic as Lustig and Simunovic have both gone close with headers from corners" from Martin Dowden BBC Scotland at the Caledonian Stadium

  41. Post update

    Celtic too look dangerous at corners and Jozo Simunovic heads a Stuart Armstrong corner across the face of goal and wide.

  42. Inverness response

    The hosts have put Celtic under pressure at corners since falling behind and visiting goalkeeper Craig Gordon and his defence have looked uncomfortable at times.

    Quote Message: Great start form Celtic but Inverness CT not sitting back in what is a very open game thus far. McGregor will be full of confidence after two goals in two games. Thankfully, conditions seem to be improving ever so slightly with the rain subsiding and some blue sky even emerging to the north" from Martin Dowden BBC Scotland at the Caledonian Stadium

  46. CLOSE!

    Another chance for Celtic. Mikael Lustig has a free header at a corner and nods the ball wide.

  47. GREAT SAVE!

    Almost an instant reply from Inverness. Gary Warren gets his head to a corner and only the chest of Celtic keeper Craig Gordon prevents an equaliser.

  48. GOAL Inverness CT 0-1 Celtic (McGregor)

    Callum McGregor fires a left-foot shot past Owain Fon Williams to put Celtic ahead.
