Huge Boxing Day challenge for Celtic at Dens Park, three points essential

Today’s Dens Park challenge for Celtic will be similar to the Rugby Park one from a few weeks ago so it’s absolutely essential that we are up for it today. If we play to our capabilities it will deliver a different outcome and the three points we need ahead of the Glasgow Derby…

Saturday is of course Derby Day, and all the talk and build up has already started, but today’s match against Dundee is the one we should all be focused on. The Dark Blues will be a tough nut to crack especially at home, not only because of the conditions, but Tony Docherty’s men are a decent side and have been in superb form this season.

I’m expecting this challenge to be as similar as the one we faced at Rugby Park a few weeks ago, and we all know what happened then. Dundee like Killie will be in our faces, but also not be afraid to have a go, and Just like Derek McInnes’ side they can punish us if we are not fully focused and playing to the best of our abilities.

We must be more committed and sharp than we were against Kilmarnock. We need to start we were left off on Saturday against Livingston when Celtic returned to form after back-to-back league defeats for the first time in a decade.

We looked more sharp on Saturday against a stubborn side. Kyogo of course found his shooting boots and that is a great confidence booster for both the player and the team, especially with theRangers coming on Saturday

Let’s hope we are celebrating at full time this afternoon and we can then look forward to the Glasgow Derby with confidence. But all Celtic thoughts are on Dundee, three points today please Bhoys. You know you can do it!
