Scott McDonald missed the chance of the game and Artur Boruc pulled off two impressive saves as Celtic and Rangers fought out a goalless draw at Parkhead. After 15 minutes of a poor first half, the Australia international and Celtic striker failed to connect properly with a cross from Hoops debutant Willo Flood from just six yards out. Rangers responded after the break and Boruc saved a deflected header from his own skipper Stephen McManus and blocked a David Weir header from point-blank range.
But neither side found a way through and Celtic remained two points clear of their fierce rivals at the top of the table. Earlier, the Rangers manager Walter Smith handed 17-year-old John Fleck his Old Firm debut. He was included on the left side of midfield with Kyle Lafferty being the lone striker in a 4-5-1 formation which had Lee McCulloch in the holding role in midfield. * PA Sport
