Tom Rogic and Mark Milligan locked horns as the Scottish Premier League's runaway leaders, Celtic, were held by Hibernian in a stalemate at Easter Road.
The Caltex Socceroo pair shared the pitch for around ten minutes as steely midfielder Milligan bustled for 70 minutes, while Hoops playmaker Rogic was introduced just after the hour mark as coach Neil Lennon looked to break the deadlock.
The tactical switch almost worked for Lennon, as Rogic engineered some space to shoot from 20 yards out but he could only watch his effort skim agonisingly wide of the Hibs goal in the 0-0 draw.
Rogic will add to his medal collection if the Glasgow-based side can secure four points from their four remaining fixtures, while the Edinburgh outfit Hibs sit comfortably in mid-table at fifth position.
