Celtic took on Macclesfield FC at theleasing.com stadium with neither side able to break the deadlock on a scorching day in Macclesfield.
Celtic started on the front foot and had a good chance after just three minutes. Stephen Brogan worked a free-kick into the path of debutant Matty Hughes. He neatly flicked the ball on to the head of Ioan Evans who sent a header just wide of the post.
Keano Deacon saw a shot from a narrow angle saved by keeper Ben Pierce before Celtic were tested at the other end of the pitch.
Stephen Oâ€™Halloran threw himself in the way of a goal-bound shot to deny the hosts with a piece of defensive brilliance.
Celtic continued to push for an opener and Sope Awe went close after 21 minutes. Celticâ€™s number nine managed to escape from a Macclesfield defender, but his powerful strike was wide of the goal.
Moments later, Grant Shenton superbly tipped a header over the bar from a corner.
Celticâ€™s closest to a goal came in added time during the first half. Hughes found space and drove towards goal, from 25 yards his effort cannoned off the woodwork.
Celticâ€™s Under 18â€™s player Matty Jones saw an effort at goal fall just wide after a deflection and Trialist No.18 also saw an effort narrowly miss the goal via another deflection.
The game was played at a high tempo but neither side were able to find the back of the net.
