Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic was disappointed that his side could only earn a 2-2 draw against Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday.

The Bhoys took the lead twice in the Scottish capital before Osman Sow’s injury-time strike denied Ronny Deila’s side all three points.

Australia international Rogic had scored the Hoops’ second goal of the game to cap an impressive performance, but he insists that any personal satisfaction was overshadowed by the failure to secure victory.

He said: “As a team we’re frustrated to concede so late. It feels more like a loss than anything but we’ll take the positives from the game. A win’s the most important thing. It was a nice goal, and good on a personal level, but obviously I’d rather win the game.”

Celtic have now failed to win in three of their last five Scottish Premiership matches, but 23-year-old Rogic believes the team put in a much improved performance against Hearts.

He added: “At this time of the year, and coming off the back of a disappointing result last weekend, we knew we had to show the hunger and desire that wasn’t there last week. That wasn’t good enough and from the players’ point of view, we’ve shown a reaction and we were unlucky not to win the match.”

The draw was enough to move the Bhoys a point ahead of Aberdeen at the top of the league standings, but they will be keen to return to winning ways in their next match when they take on Dundee at Dens Park on Wednesday.

The reigning champions are on offer at 1.36 to win the match, whilst the hosts are available at 8.50 and the draw is priced at 5.00.
