Celtic were held to a goalless draw by Dundee on Wednesday night, and on the balance of play you could say that it was a fair result.
The Hoops struggled to get going against Neil McCann’s side, and in fact the Dens Park men came closest to opening the scoring in the first-half, when a Dedryck Boyata slide tackle ended up with the ball ricocheting off his post and away to safety with Craig Gordon beaten.
The Hoops upped the ante in the second-half, and Stuart Armstrong was denied by a good save from goalkeeper Eliot Parish, then late on Jack Hendry headed a Leigh Griffiths cross wide but the Hoops didn’t do enough to win the game.
The draw moves the Hoops ten points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the league table, but Brendan Rodgers will be disappointed that his team failed to kick-on after a good performance against Ross County on Saturday.
It wouldn’t be that much of a shock to see a few changes made for the Bhoys’ next game, a trip to Hamilton on Sunday.
