Celtic Predicted XI vs Dundee United: Must win before Glasgow Derby

Celtic have very little margin for error left if they want to return to the top of Scottish football once again. Thus, every game for them is very important. But when they take on Dundee United at Parkhead this weekend, one cannot blame them for already having a bit of an eye on their upcoming Glasgow Derby against the Rangers.

As things stand, the Ibrox side sit four points ahead of Celtic in the Premiership table and were handed a major boost recently as they were able to complete a loan deal for Manchester United’s highly-rated youngster, Amad, till the end of the season.

Celtic must definitely be confident of their own chances going into the Glasgow Derby as well although it has been a long time since they tasted victory against the Rangers. Hopefully, that run will come to an end soon.

All the focus must be on Dundee United though, when the two sides meet. The Premiership club had been in the middle of a bad run of form but have won two straight games recently, and as a result, have some decent momentum on their side. On the other hand, Celtic cannot afford to drop a single point moving forward.

Hart has been an absolute standout for Celtic since joining in the summer, and looks like someone who has represented the Hoops for years.

It is hard to imagine that there were not a lot of positive reviews when the club actually completed a deal for the goalkeeper. It has not taken long for Hart to turn the perception around him though and he is now one of the most popular players at Celtic.
