Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson insists he is determined to create a Gorgie side capable of “dominating” Celtic.
The capital club claimed a creditable 0-0 draw in Glasgow on Saturday following a stoic defensive display.
It was the first time Hearts have avoided defeat at Celtic Park since October 2009, when a team including the likes of Lee Wallace, Ian Black and Christian Nade claimed a League Cup 1-0 win.
Neilson’s men could have pinched the victory when Sam Nicholson scampered towards goal in the dying embers, however Efe Ambrose hauled him down to deny a clear goalscoring opportunity, receiving a red card for his troubles.
Neilson said: “We are pleased with the point but, long-term, I’d like to build a team that can go to Celtic Park and get three points.
“That is our aim. We want to build a team that can go to Celtic and compete, play better football and dominate the game.
“That is the project and we are still a little bit away from it, but we are heading in the right direction.
“We could have nicked it but, all in all, a point is a decent result.”
