Dundee United vs. Celtic: Predicted Line Up For The Hoops As Griffiths Leads The Line

A 3-0 win over League One side Stranraer in the Scottish Cup, goals from Leigh Griffiths and Carlton Cole saw the Hoops get over the lower league side and made it two wins in two in January after ending last year with a loss and a draw in the last two games.

Celtic will now have to take on Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership and with the home side rock-bottom of the league standings; this should be an easy game for the Bhoys if ever there was one in the league.

There are a few doubts about the condition of the pitch for Dundee United but Celtic should be looking to game a maximum return from the away game and increase their lead in the Scottish Premiership standings. With another game on Tuesday, Ronny Deila might want to rest a few of his stars as we predict the starting lineup for the Hoops.

Craig Gordon

The Scottish goalkeeper did not take part in the last game and should make his return to face Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership tie.

Mikael Lustig

The Swede should keep his place in the team to face Dundee United after a decent display in the last game.

Jozo Simunovic

No prizes for guessing who starts the game in the heart of the defence.

Efe Ambrose

Ambrose has done a good job in the absence of Boyata and should keep his place in the first team while partnering Jozo in defence.

Kieran Tierney

The Scot should play down the flanks for Celtic and provide ample ammunition when it comes to attacking the opposition as well.

Callum McGregor

The midfielder played in the last game and should continue in his role for Celtic in this one as well.

Stefan Johansen

Johansen was another player who completed the 90 minutes against Stranraer and should keep his place in the team to face Dundee.

Nir Bitton

Bitton has been one of the most consistent players for Celtic this season and should keep his place in the starting XI.

Tom Rogic

The Australian was a substitute for Commons in the last game but should start this one for the Bhoys as they look to extend their lead in the Premiership.

Scott Allan

Allan was brought on as a substitute for Carlton Cole in the last game and the midfielder should get a chance to impress and start the match on Friday.

Leigh Griffiths

Griffiths got back to scoring ways in the match against Stranraer and should keep his place as the man to lead the attack against Dundee.
