Brendan Rodgers insists he takes the responsibility of Celtic slipping up yet again in the title race on his shoulders.

David Watson scored a 91st-minute equaliser for Kilmarnock this afternoon as the Ayrshire side earned a deserved point at Parkhead.

Kyogo had the hosts in front with a lovely first-half header, as the Hoops looked to make the dominance count.

However, Derek McInnes' side pressed high up the field in the second half and were brave on the ball, with 19-year-old Watson getting their reward right at the death.

There were audible boos at full time from the home faithful, with Rangers now given the chance to go top of the Premiership tomorrow with a win at St Johnstone.

"The performance level was nowhere near what we'd want," he told BBC Sportsound. "It looked like we were going to get away with it. It looked like we were going to see the game through 1-0 to get a good result, but a poor performance. It was neither in the end up. 

"We're all disappointed. It's the nature of how we conceded. It's not the first time that we've been in this situation, we've been in it a number of times where we've been in front, we've not taken opportunities to extend the lead and then we've given ourselves anxiety and given the opposition something to hang onto. 

"If you do that a number of times then of course that will disappoint. It's a disappointing day for the supporters. I take responsibility for that."

It's the fourth time the champions have dropped points at home this season. St Johnstone and Motherwell had previously secured draws, with Hearts got all three back in December.

Asked directly if that is a concern, he sharply responded: "Yeah, absolutely. It's not a one-off. It's happened too many times. 

"When you look at the metrics of how the team has been doing from an analysis perspective, the defensive side has been the one area where there has been a drop, that's for sure. 

"Of course, we've been missing some key players in those positions. Still, that aside, we have to be harder to beat at times. We have to be more aggressive. 

"If you're having to see out a game then you have to be able to do that. Like I say, it's happened too many times."
