Celtic fans were disgusted by the display of today as the hoops drew 0-0 with .

The draw puts Celtic nine points ahead of Aberdeen and Sevco at the top of the Premiership with the hoops facing a tough trip to Pittodrie next Sunday after their Europa League visit to Russia.

Brendan Rodgers made seven changes to the side that beat Zenit St Petersburg on Thursday night but few of the replacements did their case many favours.

Throughout the match the hoops were hampered by some incredible decisions by Beaton who seemed determined to even up the difference in quality between the sides by allowing the Saints players to do as they please.

Time and again the visitors were able to arrive late in challenges, put the boot in and body check knowing there was virtually no chance of being punished.

Dick Foster was booked just before half-time then feigned an injury on the hour mark to avoid further punishment for dragging Charly Musonda to the deck.

Murray Davidson and Chris Millar were the chief sinners in the middle of the park with Davidson finally booked in the 75th minute for dragging Musonda to the ground.

David Wotherspoon and Blair Alston were booked in stoppage time to make it a respectable tally of four yellow cards but after waiting until the 75th minute to issue his second card Beaton had already put down a marker on the game.
