Inverness Caledonian Thistle repel first-half Celtic pressure to hold the Scottish champions to a 0-0 draw at the interval of their league clash.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle are holding Celtic to a goalless draw at the interval of their Scottish Premiership clash.

Inverness's first sight of goal arrived after four minutes when Greg Tansey lined up a free kick outside the box, but his effort moved narrowly wide of the post.

Celtic threatened eight minutes later when Kris Commons found Leigh Griffiths just outside the Inverness box, but the Scottish forward could only strike his effort into the side-netting in what was an end-to-end opening to the match.

Celtic began to dominate proceedings as the half advanced, with Inverness goalkeeper Dean Brill called into action to deny Efe Ambrose and Liam Henderson in quick succession.

Teemu Pukki was next to come close for Celtic after 25 minutes, but Brill twice denied the attacker from close range.

Brill was continually called into action in the latter stages of the half, while Nir Biton rattled the crossbar for Celtic as Inverness somehow entered the interval on terms.
