Kuhn earns Celtic draw with managerless Aberdeen
Last updated on .From the section Scottish Premiership
Nicolas Kuhn's first Celtic goal was not enough to inspire the wasteful Scottish Premiership leaders to a comeback victory at managerless Aberdeen.
That fortuitous leveller ruled out Bojan Miovski's stunning opener, scored with Aberdeen's first shot after a first half during which Celtic ought to have killed the game.
Early signs were ominous for the hosts as poor defending allowed Luis Palma, who was just offside, to eventually turn in a rebound before VAR intervened.
The Honduras winger then clipped the crossbar with a back-post strike, as did Paulo Bernardo with a lofted effort over Roos, who somehow went into the break without conceding.
But within five minutes of the second period, Miovski's 19th goal of the season, curled beautifully past Joe Hart into the far corner, gave the Pittodrie side a shock lead.
The introductions of Kuhn and debutant Idah, coupled with a change of shape, provided Celtic with more attacking verve as Matt O'Riley struck the outside of the near post just after the equaliser.
Aberdeen did not retreat, though, and could have claimed a seismic victory as Graeme Shinnie was thwarted at close range by Hart before Miovski saw an offside flag deny him a late winner.
The draw means the hosts remain eighth, while Celtic move six points clear at the top - but a win for Rangers, who have two games in hand, against bottom side Livingston later on Saturday will reduce the gap to three.
