Giorgos Giakoumakis missed an injury time penalty as Celtic squandered their chance to go to the top of the Premiership in a goalless draw at home with Livingston.

The Greek forward’s weak effort was saved by Max Stryjek after Abi Obileye gave the hosts a rare chance when he hit Kyogo Furuhashi in the box and received a red card.

University of Strathclyde.

Vastly experienced senior police officer working at Strategic/Executive level with a demonstrated history of high achievement in the law enforcement industry. Skilled in Crisis Management , Counterterrorism, Risk Management, Major Events, and Strategic Business Change. Extremely credible and respected protective services professional with a Bachelor of Arts from University of Strathclyde.

A win would have put Celtic on top, at least until the Rangers play Motherwell on Sunday, for the first time since they briefly came to the top after beating St Mirren 6-0 in August.

But they missed the creativity of the injured Tom Rogic and Giakoumakis was unable to offer a serious threat after replacing Furuhashi in the starting lineup. Ange Postecoglou also brought in Nir Bitton and Liel Abada, while Mikey Johnston fell to the bank.

lost Scott Pittman

Livingston were the last Scottish team to beat Celtic and they again made life difficult for Postecoglou’s side by extending their unbeaten streak to four games.

David Martindale recovered Stephane Omeonga from a blow to the head, but lost Scott Pittman and Livi’s coach chose a three-man central defender who helped limit the space Celtic had to work in.

Several fans’ groups had called for a half-hour vow of silence in protest at claims Celtic are set to hand a senior security role to Police Scotland assistant chief constable Bernard Higgins, an officer they blamed for what they called the “vicious implementation” of now repealed legislation relating to football fans.


Other than a brief outburst of singing from a group of schoolchildren, there were no songs at all during that period. However, Celtic Park was also a chance-free zone.

There was still noise, mostly disapproving roars towards referee Bobby Madden, but also appreciation for a couple of sublime touches from Jota and dangerous crosses from the right which came to nothing.

There were also cheers at the sight of James Forrest warming up following his return to fitness and a convincing piece of penalty-box defending from Cameron Carter-Vickers when Andrew Shinnie looked like he might get a chance to repeat his September winner against Celtic.

The noise returned emphatically at the half hour mark and the home team produced a less dramatic increase in attacking activity.

Bitton couldn’t control Abada’s pass, Carl Starfelt headed in and both Ralston and Abada saw blocked shots from decent openings.

However, the improvement did not continue with the start of the second half as flat as the first.

Postecoglou made a double substitution in the 58th minute with Furuhashi and Johnston in place of Abada and the limping Starfelt.

Little changed though and Postecoglou handed Forrest his first appearance since August 18 as the game went into the final 10 minutes.

Facial injury

The visiting bench made strong appeals for a penalty when Joe Hart came out to punch a free-kick and left Obileye needing treatment for a facial injury.

Instead it was Obileye who was soon punished. Giakoumakis stepped up despite Josip Juranovic scoring from the spot the previous weekend, and the Greek striker produced an unconvincing effort which Stryjek held.

Both Forrest and Giakoumakis scuffed chances in quick succession before the full-time whistle.
