Celtic missed a chance to extend their lead at the top of the table as they produced one of the goalless football scores of the weekend in the Scottish Premiership. Manager Ange Postecoglou revealed he was happy with the performance despite not being able to score this weekend. They increased their lead over their arch-rivals Rangers to three points after picking up a point.
Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou: “It was a good performance. We dominated the game, we played it on our terms, but obviously, we didn’t get our rewards and didn’t get the goal we needed. But in terms of the performance, I thought the players, at a difficult venue on a difficult pitch with the opposition sitting deep for the most part, we’re good. Yeah, it’s hard when the opposition sits so deep. There are so many bodies in the box to try and find ways through. There were a couple of times when the ball just didn’t bounce our way in critical areas. But I thought the players’ efforts were excellent.”
Hibernian boss Shaun Maloney: “My team showed incredible fight. They had to dig in at the end, they had to defend extremely hard. Really, really proud of the team today. In the first half we played more, in the second half we had to defend for long periods and had the character and mentality to never give up. It was a big test today for a very young team and they passed it.”
