Celtic will take on Dundee at Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park, with Ange Postecoglou’s side chasing a vital three points.
Celtic already find themselves four points adrift of fierce rivals Rangers, with the Gers sitting pretty at the summit of the Scottish Premiership currently.
Hearts secured a 5-2 victory over Dundee United yesterday, a result that moves Celtic into third place for the time being. The Hoops are only a point behind Hearts with today’s game their game in hand. As long as Postecoglou and his side avoid defeat, they will return to second in the table.
Victory for Celtic would reduce the gap to leaders Rangers to just one point, and would apply pressure on them ahead of their hosting of Ross County later on.
