The ‘Ten Niller’ patter was a work, the five nil one was a shoot.
Celtic, yet again, duly delivered and thumped the dismal Dee’s in a thoroughly predictable ROMP.
Dundee went down in 12-13 with 30 points, after nearly being miraculously saved from the drop by John ‘Bomber’ Brown.
This Dundee team will be lucky if they get to even half that tally at the end of the season at this rate. They are probably the worst team I have seen in the top flight for some time since Gretna in 2007-2008, and even then, they gave us a nightmare of a game in that campaign.
From the moment that Tom Rogic was given six months to line up and take a shot to put us 1-0 ahead, it was obvious a doing was on the cards and Dundee completely folded, with Scott Sinclair netting a penalty before James Forrest and Odsonne Edouard made it 4-0 before half time.
After the break, Ryan Christie kept up his great form with a fine run and well timed finish to round off the scoring early into the second half.
The night was slightly marred due to an injury to Daniel Arzani, which could keep him out for some time.
He’s not our player and it doesn’t hamper us one bit but it’s rotten luck for a guy who, by all accounts, seems decent enough and is clearly a talent, so hopefully he’ll be back in business soon enough, even if it’s not with us.
