Full Time: Celtic 0-0 Dundee
Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic were held to a lacklustre 0-0 draw against Dundee. The Hoops put in an uninspired performance and it was very unlike Brendan Rodgers’ men. Barring a few moments, the club did not look threatening enough and the visitors were left unscathed by the end of the game.
Celtic looked a lot stronger after the break but their efforts went in vain. Although they pushed for a late goal, the club failed to connect the dots.
Celtic Player Ratings
Craig Gordon – 7/10
Gordon was a spectator for most of the game and barring one important save, he did not have much to do.
Mikael Lustig – 5/10
Even though Lustig was in good positions at times, he proved to be quite wasteful. Besides that, he fulfilled his basic defensive duties.
Dedryck Boyata – 4.5/10
Erratic and nervy as always, it was a surprise that he was in the lineup after his poor performance against Ross County.
Jack Hendry – 6/10
Came in place of Kristoffer Ajer and he was relatively untroubled in the defence. He also had a late chance to score a goal but throughout the game, Hendry could not deal with long balls.
Callum McGregor – 6/10
Played a makeshift left-back role and McGregor put in a hard-working shift. This role clearly does not suit him but he provided adequate support to Sinclair.
Scott Brown – 7.5/10
Was booked in the first-half but he controlled possession and was a reliable presence in the midfield area.
Stuart Armstrong – 7/10
Provided good delivery from set-pieces and worked well with his teammates in the midfield. Unfortunately, though, nothing came out of it.
Tom Rogic – 7/10
Rogic lacked creativity and power in the final third initially but as time wore on, he got more comfortable on the field and ultimately put in a decent display.
James Forrest – 6/10
Forrest ran tirelessly and tried to make things happen by linking up well with Rogic in the second half but they failed to do so.
Scott Sinclair – 8/10
Arguably, Sinclair was the best Hoops player on the field. He dominated the left-wing completely and was a nightmare for the opponent’s defenders. He did have a good chance to score but nothing came of it.
Moussa Dembele – 6/10
It was a decent display from the youngster who worked well with Forrest in the final third.
Leigh Griffiths – 6.5/10
Brought in a much-needed dash of energy to the field.
Odsonne Edouard – 5/10
Edouard tried to make things happen but he was outmuscled by the opponents on a few occasions.
