Celtic will look to extend their lead at the top of the league table on St Stephen’s Day when they travel to face Dundee.

Brendan Rodgers’ side got back to winning ways in strike at the weekend by hammering their nearest rivals 3-0 for the second time this season.

Dundee have won three of their last six games but haven’t beaten Celtic since may 2001.

The two sides met in October as the Hoops edged out the Dark Blues courtesy of Olivier Ntcham’s long-range strike.


Reports that a bid of £18 million from Brighton and Hove Albion was accepted has been dismissed as “nonsense” by the club.

Tom Rogic has been ruled out through injury until the New Year and Dedryck Boyata is a doubt going into the game after coming off late on against Hamilton in midweek with a groin problem.

Patrick Roberts will be also out until 2018 with a hamstring that has plagued him since his return to Glasgow at the end of August.

Anthony Ralston has been dealing with a meniscus problem that has kept him out of action since September and has yet to return to the squad.


Scott Allan will be ineligible to play against his parent club.

Roarie Deacon will be out once again with a thigh injury along with Scott Bain who remains out after a confrontation with manager Neil McCann.

Long-term absentees James McPake and Craig Wighton are both out with knee injuries.
