Celtic grabbed a share of the spoils with St Mirren at the weekend after a 2-2 draw at Parkhead.

The stalemate failed to please boss Ange Postecoglou and skipper Callum McGregor as the Hoops failed to win for the second week in a row.

And the Aussie responded to criticism of his men by stating that the back-to-back Scottish Premiership winners were still at the top of the tree despite the stutters in the last fortnight.

When asked about the recent run of results, he told BBC Sportsound: "I don’t know. We are champions. I get it that people are so obsessed. The heavyweight champion of the world does not have to win every round, but he holds the belt. 

"We hold the belt. People can try and write narratives, but we play games of football with certain underlying principles because we want to enjoy it and we want our fans to enjoy it. 

"We haven’t done that in the past couple of weeks but we all know if anyone looks at this team and sees anything other than a champion, then they look at things that have been."

For the second match in succession, the 57-year-old tinkered with his defence with Tomoki Iwata filling in at centre-back - in the continued absence of Cameron Carter-Vickers - after Yoki Kobayashi was dropped to the bench with Anthony Ralston occupying Alistair Johnston's right-back slot.

However, on the basis of the evidence provided in both the Rangers and St Mirren matches alone, Postecoglou may well need to strengthen his defence ahead of the Champions League group stages.

Do Celtic need to recruit another centre-back and right-back as cover for Carter-Vickers and Johnston?

Meanwhile, Celtic Women came up agonisingly short of clinching their first-ever Scottish Women's Premier League title.

An injury-time goal for Lauren Davidson handed Glasgow City a 1-0 win at Ibrox over Rangers as Leanne Ross's side secured their 16th title.

Fran Alonso's side defeated Hearts 2-0 in front of a record crowd of just under 16,000 at Celtic Park courtesy of goas by Caitlin Hayes and Natasha Flint.

While the team's efforts were not enough to win the race for the league flag, Celtic pipped rivals Rangers for second spot and grabbed a coveted slot in the Champions League next season.
