St Johnstone manager Steven MacLean: "I thought our shape was very good. We worked ever so hard. I'm really disappointed with the two goals we conceded, one is from our corner, the other is from when we're in possession of the ball.
"I thought the players gave everything we asked of them and I thought we were a little bit unfortunate with opportunities we had. In games like these you need to take your opportunities when they come along."
"We've played Celtic, Rangers and Hearts now. We knew it was a difficult start to the season. We've brought 11 new players in. They showed me a lot of character. They did exactly what I want apart from the two goals we conceded."
