Ange Postecoglou takes his Celtic side on the road and the miles to Dundee looking to keep them on course in the title race.

The Hoops start the day trailing by seven points in the Scottish Premiership but with this their game in hand over leaders and rivals Rangers.

Postecoglou has personnel problems ahead of the trip with Jota, Stephen Welsh and Anthony Ralston almost certain to miss out.

Celtic's squad is being stretched to the limit and Tam Courts and will be looking to take full advantage.

The Tangerines have already taken an Old Firm scalp at home this season after a win over Rangers early in the season.

And they managed a battling draw at Parkhead when they faced Celtic in September.

So Dundee United will be hoping they can get a positive result as they look to bounce back from a midweek defeat at Motherwell.
