Match Report


We extended our excellent sequence of results at Parkhead with this fully merited share of the points. The result meant that we remain undefeated at Parkhead over the past few seasons, In eleven visits we have lost only once! A record unequalled by any other side. The latest draw although goalless was far from being uninteresting. Both sides made an attacking opening with Roy Aitken cracking a shot past the post. Pat Bonner was stretched to cut out several dangerous crosses, but the nearest to a goal in the first period came when an inswinging corner from Paul McStay clipped the crossbar. The darting runs of Kevin Gallacher had posed the Celtic defence all sorts of problems and it was from one of these in the 51st minute that Pat Bonner brought off the first of several fine saves by both 'keepers.

Kevin Gallacher escaped the clutches of Roy Aitken and fired in a shot from the edge of the box, which Bonner somehow managed to tip round the post. Six minutes later it was Billy Thomson's turn to perform heroics, beating away a fierce Peter Grant drive over the bar. With quarter of an hour left, a first time pass by lain Ferguson found Eamonn Bannon in space but Bonner pulled off a flying save from Eamonn's volley. Celtic immediately stepped up the pace of the game and Walker hit the crossbar, after Billy Thomson had blocked a Frank McAvennie effort from close in. Morris then hit a drive across the face of the goal before Billy Thomson brought off another superb save when Joe Miller's shot took a cruel deflection to ensure that we took the point our play deserved.
