CELTIC’S Premiership game against Dundee United at Tannadice on Sunday WILL get the green light.
Reports have claimed the midday kick-off is in jeopardy following significant damage inflicted upon the ground by Storm Arwen.
The Tayside outfit confirmed that parts of the Jerry Kerr Stand stand would require repairs after gale force conditions wreaked havoc in parts of the UK. The local council closed the road outside the stadium.
According to a club statement: “Assessment of damage and restoration will begin today and is expected to last a few days.”

However, CQN’s information is that the match, which will be televised live by Sky Sports, will get the go-ahead once safety certificates have been issued.
Screening from Tannadice will begin at 11.30am.
