Ross County and Aberdeen had to settle for a point apiece in a pulsating 1-1 Scottish Premiership draw at Global Energy Stadium.

County struck first 10 minutes from the break when Melvin De Leeuw scored with a glancing header from Graham Carey's free-kick.

But the second-placed Dons kept plugging away and Adam Rooney grabbed an equaliser with a close range finish 13 minutes from time, despite a couple of excellent stops from Mark Brown in the build-up.

Celtic will be champions if they win at Partick on Wednesday night.

St Mirren's relegation fight suffered another significant blow as they allowed St Johnstone to escape Paisley with a 1-0 win.

Steven MacLean smashed home the only goal of the game after 38 minutes to hand Danny Lennon's side their seventh defeat in their last eight matches and consolidate the visitors' position in the top six.
