Lee McCulloch believes Celtic players will be “banging their heads at missing the chance to reduce Rangers' seven-point lead at the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.
The Ibrox midfielder headed a vital equaliser two minutes after Celtic substitute Scott McDonald had nodded the home side ahead.
However, all that drama came after the hosts had squandered a series of chances and McCulloch acknowledged the pressure Rangers had been put under for most of the afternoon.
“They will be banging their heads against the wall thinking 'why did we not win that game?”' he said.
“I played in the France games for Scotland and we got battered but still came away winning. That's football. You get that and you need to move on.
“It showed great character for us to come back into the game and grab the goal and hang on in the end.
“Maybe we lacked a little bit of belief but we will take that point and move on.
“We have to realise that we weren't good enough as a team but we managed to get that point and we will keep going for the rest of the games.”
Rangers manager Walter Smith reckons Celtic's dominance could have come from their greater desire to get the result.
He said: “I think it was Barry Ferguson who mentioned that the motivation is greater for the team who face the situation where they could go a number of points behind the other team.
“That can be a massive motivation for you and maybe we have seen a Celtic team who were fully motivated while we were off the pace.
“So it was a far better draw for us than Celtic and they will feel aggrieved that they didn't win it.”
