Socceroos winger Martin Boyle played a starring role for Hibernian as his side snatched a 2-2 draw in an absorbing clash with leaders Rangers at Easter Road on Sunday.
Steven Gerrard's side arrived in Edinburgh having started the season with a British-record seven straight clean sheets.
But Drey Wright became the first player to score a league goal against the Light Blues this season as he swept Hibs ahead after being teed up by the impressive Boyle who was named man of the match by Sky Sports.
Rangers hit back with strikes from Alfredo Morelos and Scott Arfield but they were denied victory when Christian Doidge nodded in Boyle's sublime cross.
Gerrard's men go back to the top of the table by a point but, having played a game more than Celtic, will worry they have handed the title initiative to Neil Lennon's champions.
Hibs have now gone nine games without a win against Rangers but do hold on to third spot.
The match ended with Hibernian defender Ryan Porteous and Gerrard having words on the touchline after the final whistle.
The centre-back was involved in a heated exchange with the Gers boss after allegedly accusing skipper James Tavernier of being a bad loser as the whistle blew.
He had already been involved in an off-the-ball clash with Alfredo Morelos during the first half before finding his offer of a handshake snubbed by Gerrard and Tavernier as they made their way off the pitch at the end of the 90 minutes.
But Gerrard was in no mood to take lessons in sportsmanship from the Scotland under-21 international.
The Ibrox boss said: "I think Porteous was saying that Tav's a bad loser, which I think is a bit cheap coming from him.
"He got sent off for a really bad tackle (on Borna Barisic) when he was losing 3-0 against us here last season.
"Hibs have played their part in a really good game today. We're not happy with the outcome but there's no need to panic."
