Impressive McGregor, poor Lusting – The best and the worst-rated Celtic stars vs Dundee

Celtic Player Ratings vs Dundee: Here’s how the Hoops fared

Celtic were on song at Dens Park as they thrashed Dundee 5-0 in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday.

Goals from Tom Rogic, Scott Sinclair, James Forrest, Odsonne Edouard and Ryan Christie saw Celtic complete a rout as Brendan Rodgers bagged his 100th win as a Hoops’ boss.

The emphatic victory saw the Hoops move to within four Scottish Premiership points of first-placed Hearts.

Celtic Player Ratings

Craig Gordon- 6/10

Gordon had a stroll in the park as he was barely tested by the Dundee side.

Mikael Lustig- 5/10

Lustig was decent going forward and barely tested when it came to defending. Won the penalty for the second goal.

Dedryck Boyata- 7/10

Boyata was a pillar at the back and absolutely gave no space to the Dundee forwards to thrive.

Filip Benkovic- 7/10

Just like Boyata, Benkovic was solid in defence as well and effectively passed the ball out from the back.

Kieran Tierney- 7/10

Bombed up and down the left with energy and purpose. His cut-back was excellently put into the net by Forrest for Celtic’s third goal.

James Forrest- 8/10

Forrest caused a lot of problems to the Dundee defence with his movement and pace. Drove forward in the box and scored a good goal from Tierney’s cut-back as well.

Callum McGregor- 8/10

McGregor was excellent throughout the game, playing the anchor role and pinging balls in all directions from midfield.

Tom Rogic- 8/10

Gave Celtic the lead with a fantastic left-footed curling effort which dropped into the far corner. Enjoyed the game in a free role and caused a lot of problems to the hosts’ backline.

Ryan Christie- 7/10

A tireless display from Christie, who again justified his selection. Scored Celtic’s fifth with aplomb after sent through by Edouard.

Scott Sinclair- 7/10

Sinclair did well on the night as he troubled the Dundee backline with his pace and unpredictability. Scored a good penalty as well.

Odsonne Edouard- 7/10

Scored a goal and was involved in a couple of goals. Some of his touches on the ball were poor and so was his decision-making but Edouard worked very hard on the night.

Substitutes

Kristoffer Ajer- 3/10

Came on for Boyata to solidify the defence and did well.

Lewis Morgan- 3/10

Replaced Rogic but didn’t do anything noteworthy.

Daniel Arzani- 2/10

Celtic’s only blemish on the night would be the injury of young Daniel Arzani, who lasted only 22 minutes on his debut before being taken off on a stretcher with a knock.
