CELTIC went to the Premiership pinnacle for the first time this season after their goalless stalemate at Livingston yesterday.
Brendan Rodgers has always insisted he has never witnessed a classic match on an artificial surface and he saw nothing in this encouter to change his mind.
The Hoops, after claiming 23 goals in their previous five domestic encounters, couldn’t break down the opponents’ stubborn barrier on this occasion.
However, there was plenty of action for CQN‘s ace lensman Geo to capture and here are the pick of the pics.
