Celtic currently lie third in the table after nine games and are six points behind Hearts who have played a game more.

Rodgers side are expected to beat the league’s basement dwellers without too much trouble, but fans were ecstatic to see Arzani placed on the bench for the game.

Arzani’s arrival

The Australian winger has not been named in any of Rodgers’ matchday squads so far this season.

The ex-Liverpool boss had previously claimed that the Manchester City loanee needed time to adapt to his new surroundings and wasn’t about to rush him into the first-team.

Speaking last month, the manager said as quoted by STV News: “It’s just time, he’s a talented young player and the idea with a talented young player is to go from a talent to a professional.

“Daniel is a young boy who has talent, over the coming years we will see if he the commitment to go with the quality he has.”

Celtic fans’ reaction

With a number of fans having expressed their concerns about Arzani’s progress, it’s safe to say his inclusion against Dundee was very well received:
