CELTIC left it late but the moment finally arrived when Albian Ajeti smashed home from close range to make it 1-0 on the day.
Ajeti was making his domestic debut when he came on with the game poised at 0-0, the new striker made the difference.
He even kept the ball in the mix before the goal when he nudged it back to Edouard. Dundee Utd had every man behind the ball. Three men on the line couldn’t stop the low driven shot.
Celtic finally make the breakthrough! 😱
Benjamin Siegrist makes another fine stop to deny Ryan Christie but substitute Albian Ajeti is on hand to score his first Celtic goal! ⚽

Celtic got a massive three points in the context of the season. After the Killie draw and the enforced postponements of our games, to draw again would have been a major hammer blow for the club’s title aspirations.
They dug in and they managed to get the ball in the back of the net. The bhoys are now heading into their Champions League qualifier on a high and domestic action against Motherwell on Sunday next week.
