First Team

Fair point

28th December 2015

Osman Sow felt Hearts were worthy of a point against Celtic.

Osman Sow believes a draw was a fair result against Celtic on Sunday but admits his side could well have taken all three points.

Hearts twice came from behind against the league leaders, with Sam Nicholson equalising shortly before half-time after Nir Bitton had put the Hoops ahead.

Tom Rogic restored Celtic’s advantage in the second-half and all three points looked to be heading to Glasgow before Sow unleashed a thunderbolt free-kick in the dying minutes.

Speaking during his post-match press conference, Osman said:

“I hit the free-kick quite well but I think it took a bit of a deflection and I’m thankful for that!

“I thought we had chances to win. Especially in the first half we had a good spell. We were a bit on top then but in the second they had us under pressure.

“So I thought we could have got the three points, or we could also have ended up with nothing. Both teams had chances so a point each was a fair result.

“Whenever we play Celtic I believe we can win, you have to think like that. I think we have a good team here, everyone is fighting for each other.”
