Celtic will have to wait to secure their seventh successive Ladbrokes Premiership title after they were beaten 2-1 at Hibernian.

Jamie Maclaren's first-half strike was added to by Vykintas Slivka with 10 minutes left, before Odsonne Edouard pulled one back late on.

Brendan Rodgers' side can win the title tomorrow should Rangers lose to Hearts and Aberdeen also lose to Kilmarnock this weekend.

If the Gers or Aberdeen avoid defeat, Celtic have the chance to make certain sure of the title when they play their Old Firm rivals at home next Sunday.

Rangers, Hibs and Aberdeen are all currently 13 points behind the leaders.
