Celtic draw helps rivals Rangers

Celtic's Paul Hartley and Hibernian's Steven Fletcher

Celtic have missed their chance to go back to the top of the SPL, and handed title rivals Rangers a big advantage.

Celtic's 0-0 draw away to Hibernian means if Rangers are able to win their final match of the season they will become the SPL champions.

And even Rangers don't win, they'll still left the trophy as long as they get a better result than their rivals.

Celtic had a lot of possession in their match with Hibs, but couldn't create any clear-cut chances.

The final games in the top half of the SPL season all kick off at 1pm on Sunday 24 May.

When those games start Rangers will be two points in front of Celtic.

Celtic are at home to Hearts at Parkhead, while Rangers travel to Dundee United for their final match.
