It has been announced that a Celtic select team will head to the North-East in November to play Dundee for Cammy Kerr’s testimonial. The defender has been at the club since the age of eight.

It will be a deserved celebration of the 28-year-old’s career, but also an ideal opportunity for some fringe players and those coming back from injuries to gain some minutes for the Hoops.

We saw at the weekend how the likes of Marco Tilio, Yuki Kobayashi, and Kwon all got minutes for the Bhoys away at Ayr United for Michael Moffat’s testimonial. One imagines a similar team will be fielded at Dens Park in a few months’ time.

On the match, Celtic B team manager Darren O’Dea, who recently pulled out of the race for the Inverness job to stay in Glasgow, said (X): “This kid (Kerr) is such a good lad that deserves this so much. Hopefully a massive turnout for him.”

The game will take place on Thursday the 16th of November, during the third international break of the season. It is a great chance for Celtic supporters who are not fans of international football to see their team play when they would usually not.
