Quick ReviewCeltic came within inches of taking the lead in the opening minute when Colin Healy struck the bar with a powerful header. The midfielder volleyed the rebound just over.
But it was Spurs who took the lead in eight minutes, Christian Ziege whipping in a free kick that fell kindly for Steffen Iversen to tuck home from close range.
David Fernandez might have pulled Celtic level moments later when he found himself alone in the box, but he failed to trouble Keller.
But Fernandez' strike-partner Shaun Maloney did equalise, in stunning fashion, after 29 minutes. He struck a 25-yard free kick curling past Keller's right hand and into the net.
Spurs applied more pressure to the Celtic goal as half-time approached and might have gone ahead again in 42 minutes when Taricco found Iversen in acres of space but his header was well off-target.
The home side had a claim for a penalty turned down 10 minutes into the second half, Acimovic going down under Crainey's challenge only for referee Dermot Gallagher to turn away appeals.
Maloney should have had a penalty in 70 minutes when he was taken down by Chris Perry, but, unbelievably, the referee again waved play on.
Teddy Sheringham latched on to an Iversen cross in 75 minutes and his header beat Hedman, but came back off the post.
Momo Sylla burst through the middle with a few minutes remaining, but his shot flashed wide.
