OTHER NEWS: Brendan Rodgers believes that Moussa Dembele has the ‘arrogance and belief’ to become an even better player than he already is.

Talking of Dembele, Leigh Griffiths has stated that he and Dembele are in ‘a fight’ to be Celtic’s main striker.

ON THIS DAY: In 2005 Celtic went top of the league thanks to a topsy turvy 4-2 win over Dundee United at Tannadice, with goals from Hartson, Sutton, Pearson and an own goal winning the points.

In 1993 Lou Macari’s first game as Celtic manager ended with a 2-1 triumph over Rangers at Ibrox thanks to a last minute Brian O’Neil header. John Collins also scored in what was a dreadful day for Rangers goalie Ally Maxwell. Full match highlights are below.
