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.
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.
