Naylor takes positives from Tannadice

22 March 2009 05:01
Scott McDonald opened the scoring for the Hoops before Francisco Sandaza grabbed a double for United, but it was Naylor who had the final say with a late equaliser to earn a 2-2 draw.

With Rangers also being held to a 2-2 draw, against Hearts on Saturday, Celtic were able to maintain their three-point advantage at the summit.

And Naylor expects plenty more twists and turns to come in the title race.

He told Setanta Sports: "There are a lot of games left and a lot of points up for grabs.

"We will go into every game wanting to win the game and get the three points.

"All the boys are disappointed in the dressing room but, in hindsight, a point is probably a good result."

When put to Celtic boss Gordon Strachan that the game was a great advert for Scottish football, he told Setanta Sports: "I only hope it's covered in that way.

"The football does get a negative slant and if there was a negative about that game, someone will find it and play on it.

"But if you didn't enjoy the result, enjoy the goals, you're warped."

Celtic may have squandered the opportunity to move five points clear of Rangers.

But Strachan added: "The way the game went, we are delighted with a point.

"The performance was good, apart from 20 minutes, and the goals were good.

"Overall, we are in the same position as we were in the last round of games."
