Dundee left Parkhead tonight with a valuable point after a goalless draw against the Scottish Champions as the Dee moved five points clear of Ross County and Partick Thistle at the bottom of the table.
After grabbing a point against Hearts on Easter Sunday, the Dee travelled to Glasgow with a spring in their step and managed to capitalise on it by producing a solid display that resulted in an unlikely, yet thoroughly deserved, clean sheet and point at a venue we haven't been victorious at since 2001.
Manager Neil McCann was ecstatic with his players 'exceptional' performance and was quick to praise everyone of them.
“To a man we were exceptional and the willingness to work for each other was great, we had a huge trust in the game plan and followed up on a terrific performance against Hearts, even though we had to alter how we approached the game, but I thought we were well worth a point tonight.
“Mark O’Hara has a great performance out wide, and it’s a great chance at the end where you hope one of your strikers might get a toe on it, but I can’t be too unhappy with a point.
“There’s not many teams that will come here and get that. Brendan made all 3 subs and went for it but we stayed organised.
“It’s a great point. If you look at how structured and solid the team was, we should be coming here confident and believing in the work we put in, they never really cut us open and Elliot pulled some great saves off.
“I’m delighted that Steven is still here, and it’s a big accolade that he wants to stay here after the offer. He said he wasn’t interested and I daresay that’s had a positive effect in the dressing room.
“I’m so happy for the team and the fans tonight!”
