The fall from grace for Celtic bounds to seek redemption this week in the Scottish Premiership this week as they take on Dundee United. The match schedules for Sunday afternoon at Celtic Park with kickoff at 5 pm.
Both teams are separated by one point in their table rankings, with hosts 6th and opponents at 5th. In addition, Celtic came off a 3-0 win over Raith Rovers in the League Cup, whereas Dundee United suffered a 3-1 defeat to Hibernian.
Celtic have been a side looking for consistent form this season, and they are currently sitting in sixth place. The team recognizes that if they want to be contending at the end of the campaign, it will take some time instead of just waiting around until something happens.
It’ll mean better performances from all players on their roster, resulting in Celtic climbing up more spots by playoffs when fans hope what could happen next.
Celtic will be hoping to get back on track this Sunday when they take on Dundee United, who sits above them one point ahead.
The Australian coach has been in charge of the club for less than a year, but he’s already managed to guide them from Scotland’s fourth tier and into their first final. It will be an interesting test this weekend.
