Giorgos Giakoumakis scored a hattrick to help Celtic produce one of the high-scoring football results of the weekend in the Scottish Premiership. Danny Mullen opened the scoring in the 26th minute before Giakoumakis scored his first in the 38th minute. He scored his second four minutes later before Ryan Sweeney equalized in the 60th minute. Just when it looked like dropped points for Celtic, Giakoumakis completed his hattrick scoring the winner in the 86th minute.
Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou: “It’s a concern. When we’re dominating a game so much, defending so well and keeping them away from goal, Joe Hart didn’t have a save to make. I don’t think he even touched the ball with his hands. If they can just lob balls in the box and we concede, that’s not good. It’s something we need to address, have a little more conviction in our box, the same way we do in the opposition box. There are definitely lessons in there but that’s part of our continual improvement as a team. There are still areas we need to get better at and that’s one of them.”
Dundee manager Mark McGhee: “We had a naive moment on the far side when we might’ve just kept it. Instead of that, they broke against us. Sometimes a good team like them will punish you and that’s what happened. A point today would’ve been a fantastic point for the league table and not just for the achievement here. But, we’ll take all the positive aspects from this into the game on Wednesday night against St Mirren.”
