Celtic slipped up at Easter Road at the weekend as they dropped two precious Scottish Premiership points.

Brendan Rodgers saw his side's lead at the top of the table reduced to five points over Rangers, as Celtic drew a blank in the league for only the second time this season as they drew 0-0 with Hibernian.

With Kyogo Furuhashi, Luis Palma and Matt O'Riley failing to hit the net for the Parkhead side in the capital, it was a surprise to see Celtic end the match with a front three of James Forrest, Mikey Johnston and Oh Hyeon-gyu.

Oh seemed to cop a barrage of criticism and flak in the aftermath of the stalemate.

The 22-year-old attacker has failed to hit the target for Celtic this season in nine appearances which has led to many insisting that Rodgers needs to sign another striker during the January transfer window.

Oh was seemingly brought in to fill the void left by Greek striker Giorgos Giakoumakis when he quit to join MLS side Atlanta United back in February.

The goals have dried up for the Korean and the player is finding the going much tougher under Rodgers this campaign after banging in a creditable seven goals in 21 appearances last season.

Why has Oh failed so far where the likes of Giakoumakis succeeded?

Has recruiting a striker in January become a top priority for Celtic?

Meanwhile Greg Taylor has also defended Republic of Ireland winger Johnston by insisting that the player can still shape his own future at Celtic.

Taylor said: "Mikey's got bags of ability, Mikey. In one vs one in training, he’s right up there with the best. You see his performances for Ireland. They’ve been very strong as well.

"So Mikey’s got ability. It’s just about delivering on a consistent level. If he does that in training then he’ll get the opportunity in games. There is a top player there."

There is no time for the champions to brood as Stephen Robinson's in-form St Mirren visit Glasgow's east end on Wednesday night.
