Steven Doris' dramatic late equaliser for Arbroath means Celtic will have to replay their William Hill Scottish Cup fourth-round tie against the third-tier side following the 1-1 draw.

With one eye on Wednesday night's home Champions League Group G decider against Spartak Moscow, Hoops manager Neil Lennon made nine changes to his side. The hosts nevertheless went ahead in the 35th minute when Stewart Malcolm hammered a clearance from the byline off the back of fellow Red Lichties defender Alex Keddie and into the net.

The SPL champions created and missed a host of chances while also being foiled by Arbroath goalkeeper Scott Morrison, but with four minutes remaining Doris shocked the home side when his deflected drive beat Lukasz Zaluska in the Celtic goal.
