Dundee 1-2 Celtic – Not a great watch but three points is all that matters

We did say we’d take any form of win yesterday at Dens Park, but once again it was a tough watch. Dundee to their credit are a determined dogged side and they gave us a tough 90 plus minutes in a match they’ll consider themselves unlucky not to take a point.

But Celtic took our chances when it mattered through man of the moment James Forrest. The first a superbly taken volley in which is surely a contender for goal of the season, and his second which was a brilliantly taken opportunist strike, a goal which turned out to be the all decisive strike after Dundee pulled one back through an unfortunate Adam Idah own goal.

In the end the stuttering performance doesn’t matter as we came away with what we wanted and that was the three points. At this stage of the season that is all that matters.

With four games remaining, and three of those at home, we are now in a brilliant position to retain our title. Make no mistake after their own equally stuttering win over St Mirren theRangers expectations would have been high that Dundee could do to Celtic what they did to them a week or so ago.

That’s what makes yesterday’s result all the more important. Yes the performance wasn’t great on what remains a difficult pitch but that’s a worry for another day. We are top of the league and looking good for another title.

Let’s focus on the positives and a revenge mission against Hearts this Saturday where we play first and can increase both the points and goal difference lead over theRangers ahead of them playing Kilmarnock on Sunday at Ibrox. The tension there will be through the roof!
