Giorgos Giakoumakis was first class today as the Greek striker scored the perfect hat trick to give his team much needed three points and send them three points clear at the top of the SPFL League table.
Celtic were rocked when Danny Mullen put bottom-of-the-table Dundee ahead in the 26th minute at Parkhead. Giakoumakis scored twice in four minutes before the break, only for Ryan Sweeney to head Dundee’s equaliser on the hour.
It was a typical heart-pounding game from the Celts, the players running their fans up and down a rollercoaster ride for 90 odd minutes. Luckily in the end Giakoumakis did what you felt had been coming over the past few weeks when he hit his third and the games winning goal.
It is understandable the player is excited but someone (Callum McGregor) should have a word in his ear about his post-match comments and his title-winning predictions.

We need the big man to keep these comments in the dressing room, these kinds of statements can fire up the opposition and have a tendency to come back and bite.
Still, ten out of ten for the Greek striker today on the park and hopefully his goals today open up the floodgates in the coming weeks, himself and Maeda seem to be forming a partnership the more they play together.
