Celtic return to domestic action against Dundee United after a gutless performance and defeat to Molde on Thursday.

It is the third consecutive game that Celtic will face a team with a new manager in charge, and some are even calling for a new manager at Paradise after the latest game.

Newly appointed Dundee United manager Mixu is cursing having to play Celtic in just his second game in charge. In his opening game, the Taysiders lost 1-0 to Hearts.


Carlton Cole, who signed a contract until the summer of 2017 on Thursday afternoon, is not fit enough to make his debut against Dundee United on Sunday.

The 32-year-old will miss out along with defender Charlie Mulgrew, however, winger James Forrest may return following injury.

Dundee United are without long-term absentees Mario Bilate, Paul Dixon, Chris Erskine and Paul Paton.

Defender Callum Morris misses out again with a calf problem as Mixu Paatelainen seeks his first points as United boss.
