Celtic is set to lock horns with Dundee this weekend in what promises to be an enthralling contest. This marks Dundee’s inaugural visit to Celtic Park following their recent promotion.

Coming off the back of a significant derby victory at Ibrox, Celtic’s spirits will undoubtedly be high. However, memories of their last outing at Celtic Park, which concluded in a goalless draw against St Johnstone, will remind them to not be complacent.

  • Date and Time: The match is scheduled for Saturday, with a kick-off time of 3 pm at Parkhead.
  • TV/Streaming Information: Unfortunately, fans in the UK won’t have a live broadcast of the match. For international viewers outside of the UK and Ireland, Celtic TV will be broadcasting the game. Highlights of the clash can be viewed on Sportscene, which will air on BBC Scotland at 19:30, with a repeat at 23:15 on BBC 1 Scotland.
  • Officiating Team:
    • Referee: Grant Irvine
    • Assistant Referees: Dougie Potter and David Dunne
    • Fourth Official: Iain Snedden
    • VAR: Steven Kirkland, assisted by Gary Hilland.

This will be Grant Irvine’s first ever Celtic match.

  • Team News:Liel Abada is unfortunately sidelined due to a recent injury, which is a setback for the Hoops. The silver lining for Celtic fans is the return of Reo Hatate, who might be up for his first start of the season post his injury layoff. Marco Tilio, having recently come back from an injury, might not feature in this game, though there’s a possibility for fans to witness the first starts for Palma, Bernardo, and Philips.

While Celtic would be keen on consolidating their position at the top, Dundee will be looking to cause an upset.
