  • McCann Praises Players As Dundee Claim Point At Parkhead

    Dundee Left Parkhead Tonight With A Valuable Point After A Goalless Draw Against The Scottish Champions As The Dee Moved Five Points Clear Of Ross County And Partick Thistle At The Bottom Of The Table.

    After grabbing a point against Hearts on Easter Sunday, the Dee travelled to Glasgow with a spring in their step and managed to capitalise on it by producing a solid display that resulted in an unlikely, yet thoroughly deserved, clean sheet and point at a venue we haven't been victorious at since 2001.

    Manager Neil McCann was ecstatic with his players 'exceptional' performance and was quick to praise everyone of them.

    “To a man we were exceptional and the willingness to work for each other was great, we had a huge trust in the game plan and followed up on a terrific performance against Hearts, even though we had to alter how we approached the game, but I thought we were well worth a point tonight.

    “Mark O’Hara has a great performance out wide, and it’s a great chance at the end where you hope one of your strikers might get a toe on it, but I can’t be too unhappy with a point.

    “There’s not many teams that will come here and get that. Brendan made all 3 subs and went for it but we stayed organised.

    “It’s a great point. If you look at how structured and solid the team was, we should be coming here confident and believing in the work we put in, they never really cut us open and Elliot pulled some great saves off.

    “I’m delighted that Steven is still here, and it’s a big accolade that he wants to stay here after the offer. He said he wasn’t interested and I daresay that’s had a positive effect in the dressing room.

    “I’m so happy for the team and the fans tonight!”

      The Celtic Football Club is a professional football club based in Glasgow, Scotland, which plays in the Scottish Premiership. The club was founded in 1887 with the purpose of alleviating poverty in the immigrant Irish population in the East End of Glasgow. They played their first match in May 1888, a friendly match against Rangers which Celtic won 5–2. Celtic established itself within Scottish football, winning six successive league titles during the first decade of the 20th century. The club enjoyed their greatest successes during the 1960s and 70s under Jock Stein when they won nine consecutive league titles and the 1967 European Cup.
      Celtic have won the Scottish league championship 49 times, most recently in 2017–18, which was their seventh consecutive championship. They have won the Scottish Cup 38 times and the Scottish League Cup 17 times. The club's greatest season was 1966–67, when Celtic became the first British team to win the European Cup, also winning the Scottish league championship, the Scottish Cup, the League Cup and the Glasgow Cup. Celtic also reached the 1970 European Cup Final and the 2003 UEFA Cup Final, losing in both.
      Celtic have a long-standing fierce rivalry with Rangers, and the clubs are known as the Old Firm, seen by some as the world's biggest football derby. The club's fan base was estimated in 2003 as being around nine million worldwide, and there are more than 160 Celtic supporters clubs in over 20 countries. An estimated 80,000 fans travelled to Seville for the 2003 UEFA Cup Final.

      With the pressure mounting on Neil McCann at fever pitch and the rumour mill speculating that anything other than a win today would lead to his sacking, Dundee dug deep to secure their first win of the season.

      To round up a pleasant day for the Dee, they also managed to keep a clean sheet in this moral boosting victory.

      Dundee still sit bottom but they have plugged the gap between themselves, St Mirren and Motherwell to just one point, who both lost today.

      Andy Boyle gave Dundee the lead in the first half on the 38th minute when he headed home at the back post and despite Hamilton hitting the bar twice, Kharl Madianga wrapped up the victory when he made it two in the third minute of injury time.

      For once, Dundee fans can look forward to watching SportScene tomorrow evening.

      Dundee continued their winning ways at Fir Park with a 5 - 1 win against a shell shocked Motherwell side.

      Dundee beat Rangers for the first time in 25 years in a 2 - 1 win at Dens Park.
      Dundee changed formation and tactics for this game against Rangers and it paid off. The Dark Blues played a 4-4-2 formation and moved Wighton and O'Hara to the side with devastating effect.
      Dundee nearly scored within the first 60 seconds after a great run and cross from Wighton down the left, but O'Hara header went wide of the target.
      Mark O'Hara (13') and Kevin Holt (41') made it 2 - 0 before the half time. Rangers Gardner pull one back on the 62nd minute to make the final score 2 - 1 the Dark blues.

      Dundee were held to a 1 - 1 draw by the visitors to Dens Park Kilmarnock.

      Kris Boyd opened the scoring within the first 10 minutes, thanks to some terrible defending which let Scott Bain on a one to one with the veteran striker who slotted past Bain and into the empty net.

      Kevin Holt made it 1 - 1 in the 27th minute as he swept the ball past three oncoming Kille players.

      Inverness CT come back from 2 - 0 down to earn a point at the Caledonian Stadium.
      Dundee took the lead through Marcus Haber (37') and Darren O'Dea (43') from well taken set pieces in the first half.
      However, in the second half ICT fought back to a well earned point at home. ICT were awarded two penalties and both from Julen Etxabeguren (Which he was booked for one). McKay scored the first (53'), but Bain saved the second.  Greg Tansey scored on the rebound in the 79th minutes to share the spoils.
      The Dark Blues could consider themselves lucky and some good goal keeping from Scott Bain helped keep the score at 2 - 2.
