LIAM HENDERSON expects Celtic to be tested to the full in their Scottish Cup-tie at Dundee tomorrow afternoon.
But the 18-year-old Hoops midfielder believes Ronny Deila will win the battle of wits with Paul Hartley.
He said: “We are hoping to progress in the Cup competitions as well as the league, of course.
“But we know it will be a tough game at Dens Park.
“They have played a few young boys and have a good manager, Paul Hartley, who obviously played at Celtic, as well.
“Dundee are doing very well at the moment. We drew 1-1 at their place at the start of the season, so we know what to expect.
“However, I’m sure the manager, Ronny Deila, will have a game plan and I’m also positive we can get the victory.”
Henderson made his first team debut in a win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park in March last year and scored in the title-clinching victory over Partick Thistle at Firhill fewer than two weeks later.
He added: “I knew it would be even more difficult to establish myself this time around as the league was near enough won when I came in last season.
“The hard work had been done and I was fortunate enough to get a taste of it.
“But I came in this season and knew I had to work even harder.”
