Fourth Celtic goal will serve as a big warning to title rivals

Not only was Celtic’s fourth goal against Dundee fantastic, but it was also a real statement of intent.

The Bhoys swept aside the Scottish Premiership’s bottom side 5-0, after racing into a 4-0 lead at half time.

Goals from Tom Rogic, Scott Sinclair, James Forrest and Odsonne Edouard totally shellshocked the hosts at Dens Park, with Ryan Christie supplying the icing on the cake in the second half.

It was a ruthless display from Celtic, who appear to have now found their feet after a sluggish start.

It’s now four on the spin, and they have plundered 18 goals across those games.

 

Impressively it was Brendan Rodgers’ 100th competitive win as manager.

Arguably the goal of the game came from Odsonne Edouard.

The French striker finished off a brilliant team move which included 18 passes in just 46 seconds, with all 11 players having a touch of the ball before it hit the back of the net.

It was a methodical move that suggested a real cohesion about the team, and surely spells trouble for Hearts, Kilmarnock and maybe Rangers.

Celtic have certainly hit a purple patch and Edouard’s goal serves as a reminder of what the Double Treble winners can do on their day.

It was a goal of high quality, that does little other than to suggest that Celtic have finally arrived this season – even if it was ‘only’ against Dundee.
