St Johnstone defender Jamie McCart was part of a back three that very much held their own against a strong Celtic frontline yesterday.

The Perth outfit were unlucky not to take all three points against the Scottish Champions after netting late on through Chris Kane.

But a flicked Moi Elyounoussi header ultimately salvaged a point for Neil Lennon's Hoops and McCart admits there was a sense of disappointment in the away dressing room at the final whistle.

He told Saints TV: “Normally I think if you get a point at Celtic Park you would be absolutely delighted.

“But after taking the 1-0 lead and limiting them to very few chances it is probably disappointing in the end.

“It was a lot of luck on their part. The boy tries to flick it on and somehow it has ended up in the top corner.

“But overall I think it is a brilliant performance from us. Tactically we set up well and done our jobs.

“You don’t come to Celtic that often and feel comfortable. It was another brilliant team performance."

The point at Parkhead put the current St Johnstone crop into the history books as they went eleven games unbeaten in the top flight.

And McCart hopes the positive run of form continues. He added: “There definitely is a lot of positivity about playing for St Johnstone at the minute. Even from the start of the season.

“Even if we had a bad result the positivity was still the same. We would come in the next day and the gaffer would be normal.

“It has helped the boys and kept the morale high, but it now much easier to be happy when results are going your way.

“It definitely is [an exciting time to be a St Johnstone fan]. We have a young squad, a young manager and we play open expansive football.

“We just need to continue working hard and hopefully we give the fans more to cheer.”
