Celtic fans no doubt had a good laugh when they saw the claims made by Dundee boss Neil McCann ahead of his side’s trip to Parkhead on Wednesday night.
The former Rangers midfielder claimed, as reported by the Scottish Sun, that his side can cause the Hoops “problems” on the night.
That is a bit of a far-fetched claim by McCann, whose side are currently 10th in the Scottish Premiership table and in the middle of a relegation battle.
As a childhood Hoops fan who ended up joining Rangers and had a great career with the Ibrox side, McCann isn’t the most popular figure in the East End of Glasgow and Hoops fans would love to see their team give Dundee a heavy defeat to leave them closer to relegation.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the game won’t be what McCann and his Dundee players do, but the team that will be selected by Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers, who may be looking to give Leigh Griffiths his first start since January after his return against Ross County on Saturday.
If Griffiths plays he is more than capable of scoring a goal or two against McCann’s side, which would give the Hoops support great delight as they edge ever closer to a seventh consecutive league title.
