The skipper felt a goal was coming but moved to temper worries over their failure to win
Callum McGregor reckons Celtic were unlucky not to show off more late drama in their draw with Hibs this afternoon.
The Hoops drew 0-0 with their hosts but chucked everything at their opponents late on as they looked to nick all three points in more final minute chaos. It wasn’t to be for the league leaders who had to settle for a point but skipper McGregor was surprised that his side failed to score in the end when they were dominant and James Forrest clattered the crossbar having come off the bench.
It’s not all “doom and gloom” for the club, though, as he insisted they’re pleased to retain a strong Premiership table lead despite the slip up.
“The tempo of the game wasn’t where we wanted to be in the first half. But in the last 25 minutes we were probably unlucky not to win the match so it’s frustrating and disappointing in terms of the result,” CalMac said.
“We hoped to nick it at the end and we pushed to get something. I actually felt the goal was coming. We had really pinned Hibs in and were creating crossing situations.
“We hit the bar from James Forrest so we had that feeling that we were pushing and they weren’t getting much on the counter attack. It felt like it was a matter of time. But it was one of those days when it wasn’t meant to be. I don’t think it’s all doom and gloom. We have been to some really difficult places so far and got maximum points so we are probably due one.
“If you look over the course of a season you probably drop points in one of these games. Of course, you want to win every game but it could be a good point come the end of the season.”
