Jozo Simunovic and Stuart Armstrong scored as Celtic beat Dundee 2-1 at Dens Park in the SPFL Ladbrokes Premiership to stretch their unbeaten run to 36 matches and move to within one win of their sixth consecutive title.

Faissal El Bakhtaoui scored a late stunner for the hosts but it wasn’t enough for Paul Hartley’s men, who remain in eighth position.

      “I have no complaints.” Said the Dundee manager.
      “I think Celtic were worthy winners and I’m not going to say that they were not.
      “I do have a complaint about the third goal because we should have had a freekick.
      “I did think the first goal was a penalty and there was contact, although I’d like to see it again.
      “Up until that point I felt we were containing Celtic and they weren’t opening us up too much.
      “On the whole, though, I can have no complaints about the result.”

      Despite the result, McCann was able to see some positives from the defeat.

      “Listen, I don’t sit here and enjoy a defeat but we can take positives from the match.
      “I now have a lot to work on from a coach’s point of view.
      “I think there was a remarkable workrate put in by my players against a top-class Celtic side.
      “They didn’t rest too many players for the Old Firm game and I think that showed good respect to my side.
      “I don’t think it was a 4-0 and it flattered Celtic a bit with the goals towards the end.
      “We were taking big risks at that point.
      “I am pleased with the effort from the guys and the fact that they stuck at it.”

      It would prove to be a frustrating evening for Dundee.

      Celtic would open the scoring from the penalty spot after Scott Sinclair was adjusted to have been brought down in the box before the player slotted home the penalty.

      The Dees then had a golden opportunity when a Randy Wolters cross found El Bakhtaoui unmarked in front of the goal but the striker completely missed it.

      A goal from James Forrest a few minutes from half time meant it would prove to be an uphill battle for the Dee to get anything from this and despite the second half being largely dull, Celtic would add another two goals to their tally. Both goals came in the dying minutes from McGregor and a second for Forrest.

      A lot of debate over this on Twitter right now about the Sinclair penalty incident and a lot of people not suggesting that Sinclair should be banned for simulation for that penalty.
      When I first saw it, I was 100% that is was a penalty, but now after watching a close-up of the replay.... I am not so sure!
       
      So was it or was it not in your opinion? Hit the Poll!

      Seems the Tic fans don't have a sense of humour then! Apparently the Official Dundee FC Twitter account joked about the Celtic Fans going home last night and it didn't go down very well with them.
       
      Apart from the really bad English.... I don't see what is so wrong with that.. I suppose the truth hurts! lol
