Hibs hamper Hoops hopes

29 October 2011 05:17

Celtic dropped 12 points behind Clydesdale Bank Premier League leaders Rangers after a lacklustre goalless draw against Hibernian at Parkhead.

Gary Hooper and James Forrest both hit the woodwork for the Hoops but it was an afternoon of frustration against a side Celtic had beaten 4-1 in the Scottish Communities League Cup quarter-final tie in midweek.

With Rangers winning 2-1 against Aberdeen at Pittodrie earlier in the day, Celtic's title hopes took another bruising, although they have a game in hand.
