St Johnstone came tantalisingly close to ending Celtic’s long unbeaten domestic run but they will go into the international break proud of their Parkhead point, according to young defender Aaron Comrie.

The 20-year-old was handed his first Saints start in the weekend clash with the champions and it took Brendan Rodgers’ men until the 80th minute to cancel out Steven MacLean’s first-half opener.

The draw was a result which keeps the Perth side undefeated themselves in teh current campaign after four games, and that will outweigh any frustration that they didn’t quite manage to stop Celtic’s 52-game streak.

“Before the game you would take a point,” Comrie said.

“With the way the game it out I thought we were a wee bit unlucky with the goal. Ando’s blocked it and the ball fell nicely for McGregor.

“It’s hard to argue with a point, though.

“I wasn’t thinking about ending their unbeaten run, especially with it being my first start. I was concentrating to make sure I didn’t make a mistake.”
