Fresh footage as Celtic finally send out title message

Celtic TV has had thin pickings over recent matches but they were kept very busy by the visit of Dundee on Wednesday night.

Against Ross County and Kilmarnock the hoops laboured their way to four points with just two goals to pour over- a deflected shot from Alistair Johnston against the Highland side followed by a well placed Kyogo Furuhashi header against Derek McInnes’ team.

Last night there were three headed goals to enjoy in the first half hour, all carrying their own unique ID and welcomed warmly by the fans inside the ground as well as viewers on Celtic TV.

Cameron Carter-Vickers has been in and out of the side through injury this season, restored to the Starting XI he led the way with a seventh minute header that Dundee keeper Trevor Carson never got near.

Adam Idah then demonstrated the qualities that he brings to Celtic with a powerful header from a well delivered cross by Johnston, in the 22nd minute Matt O’Riley‘s timing was perfect to finish off a well constructed move down the left.

Dundee were rocking, even more so when Daizen Maeda popped up on the right to show a composed finish, quickly followed by Greg Taylor finishing like a striker to put Celtic 5-0 up with exactly the message that fans had been hoping for.

Curtis Main had a ‘goal’ disallowed for Dundee following a VAR review, in the time that took up Callum McGregor made it 6-0 with the team roared off the pitch at half time.

After the break there was ‘only’ a goal from Daniel Kelly but 18 minutes into his SPFL debut it was a magic moment for the teenager midfielder who has watched David Watson and Lennon Miller grab the headlines against Celtic in recent matches.

Kelly slotted easily into the side after replacing McGregor at the break, he was completely unfazed and didn’t require any minding in his first taste of top team action. Rodgers must now carefully plan the 18-year-old’s pathway to becoming a top team regular.

Although Celtic didn’t make up any points towards the top of the SPFL table the goal difference was reduced to a single goal between the top two.

More importantly the team has found confidence and the supporters have belief again- going into Sunday’s match away to Hearts which is bound to be a far tougher challenge.
