Half-Time Report: Celtic, St Johnstone goalless at half time

Celtic and St Johnstone play out a goalless first half at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership, with Saints stopper Alan Mannus keeping the visitors in the game.

Celtic and St Johnstone have played out a goalless first half in the Scottish Premiership this evening.

Celtic were the first side to threaten when Anthony Stokes found space for a shot from a difficult angle, but his attempt flew just past the right post without troubling Alan Mannus.

The visitors sought to test their own shooting boots when Steven MacLean sized up a shot from distance, only to see his effort fly high and wide of the Celtic goal.

The hosts almost went in front after 10 minutes when Gary Mackay-Steven let fly from range, with his standout shot being saved by an equally good attempt from Mannus at his top-right corner.

Celtic peppered Mannus from distance and he was forced to make another strong save to deny Stuart Armstrong, who struck with his right towards the bottom-left corner.

The Saints failed to muster many clear-cut chances and they had to rely on attempts from distance as David Wotherspoon shot straight at Craig Gordon, leaving the sides to go into the interval on level terms.
