Celtic Skipper Scott Brown was "devastated" after a lacklustre display by Celtic saw their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership cut to four points following a 0-0 draw with Dundee at Parkhead last night.

It was a lifeless performance by the Hoops and had defender Kostadin Gadzhalov not missed a sitter with his head late in the game, the Taysiders would have left with all three points as the Celtic fans booed their side off at the end.

With Aberdeen beating Dundee United 1-0 at Tannadice, the title race is back on.

Brown said: "We didn't play as well as we could have and I think we have let everyone down, it wasn't good enough. We didn't do ourselves justice.

"Points mean so much to us and we've got one point and it's not good enough for this team.

"We should be making this place a fortress like it used to be but it hasn't been in recent months. That's a few games we have let ourselves down in now. It has been long balls and we've not been creating too many chances and it's not good enough overall.

"I am frustrated and they are frustrated and I think everyone at the club is frustrated that we are not doing as well as we possibly can."

Dundee, who were missing injured former Celtic defender Darren O'Dea, looked comfortable throughout. Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths had three unsuccessful attempts on goal but it was a dull affair.
