Adam Rooney equalised late on for the Dons, but they had Andrew Considine sent off as they tried unsuccessfully to find a winner.

CELTIC CAN CLINCH the Scottish Premiership title on Wednesday with a win at Partick Thistle after second-placed Aberdeen only managed a 1-1 draw at Ross County on Tuesday.

Aberdeen, who won the League Cup earlier this month for their first silverware in 19 years, have been in superb form of late but fell behind in the first half in Dingwall when Dutchman Melvin de Leeuw scored for struggling County.

Adam Rooney equalised late on for the Dons, but they had Andrew Considine sent off as they tried unsuccessfully to find a winner.

As a result, they are 23 points behind defending champions Celtic with just eight games left, and so the Hoops can officially wrap up the title with a win away to Glasgow rivals Partick at Firhill.

Elsewhere, sixth-placed St Johnstone won 1-0 away to St Mirren, who lie in the relegation play-off position.
