I can remember a few comfortable wins at Tannadice but only when Celtic have played at their very best. Even good Celtic teams have found Dundee United a handful for over 30 years. Tomorrow will be no different.
I watched some of United’s League Cup game against Hearts on Wednesday, it’s hard to figure out where Peter Houston is taking them, but they remain recognisable as Dundee United, they are skilful and play a fast, passing, game. In many respects, they are the perfect domestic opponent to face before meeting Barcelona.
The shadow of Champions League football will cast itself over Neil Lennon’s plans, even though the manager will understand the best preparation for a big game is to win the previous game, so Celtic will travel with as much urgency as they can muster.
We need a point to replace Edinburgh Hibernians (it is the modern style to use pre-liquidation names) at the top of the SPL, anything less would be unsatisfactory.
