None of the two sides was able to find the back of the net going into the break.
Kgaogelo Sekgota put the visitors ahead in the 54th minute before Neo Maema scored the equaliser five minutes later.
Maema then came close to scoring the winner for Celtic, but he hit the post with Swallows goalkeeper Virgil Vries beaten.
