Celtic face Dundee United at Tannadice today as the reigning Scottish Champions look to delay the title party at Ibrox. The illegal scenes of jubilation were sparked as Steven Gerrard’s side moved within one point of the league title, but they can seal it if Celtic fail to win against the Terrors today. Celtic will be targeting two wins in the next two games to postpone the celebrations.
The game kicks off at 12pm and coverage begins on Sky Sports at 11am.
Kennedy told the fans media during the week that James Forrest may make a return to the squad but he would be managing that situation with the right-winger but apart from Forrest, Vasilis Barkas may struggle to make the squad as he looks to overcome an ankle knock. Christopher Jullien remains out with Greg Taylor.
Goalkeepers – Scott Bain, Conor Hazard, Vasilis Barkas.
Defenders – Stephen Welsh, Shane Duffy, Kris Ajer, Jonjoe Kenny, Diego Laxalt, Anthony Ralston,
Midfield – Scott Brown, Callum McGregor, Ismaila Soro, Ewan Henderson, David Turnbull, Ryan Christie, Mohamed Elyounoussi, Mikey Johnston, James Forrest and Tom Rogic.
Attackers – Albian Ajeti, Leigh Griffiths, Odsonne Edouard, Patryk Klimala and Adam Montgomery.
Celtic have won the previous meetings against Dundee United this season, winning 1-0 in August as well as a 3-0 win at Celtic Park in December. Ajeti scored a late winner in the earlier trip to Tannadice and interim boss John Kennedy will be hoping that the game is more inline with the comfortable win before the New Year. Soro, Turnbull and Edouard gave Celtic the win that day.
