Struggling Celtic Drop First Home Points In Dundee United Draw

Posted by

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou insists that winning the Scottish Premiership is not a “insurmountable challenge” after his side’s poor start continued with a 0-0 draw against Dundee United.

Celtic are now in sixth place, six points behind Rangers, after a fantastic Ian Harkes header immediately cancelled out Liel Abada’s opener.

Three times the hosts struck the crossbar, with Albian Ajeti missing an open goal from three yards, while United had a strong penalty appeal turned down when Nicky Clark was fouled.

“It’s a weird league,” said Postecoglou. “You call things early here, don’t you? It’s quite remarkable that seven games in people are calling the title already.

United, led by Thomas Courts, displayed excellent calm and withstood a late assault in a tense match to earn their first point at Celtic Park in eight years.

They are a point ahead of Celtic in sixth place, and Josip Juranovic has added to Postecoglou’s already long injury list.
