Celtic were down to the bare bones but a meaty performance at Tannadice saw them flesh out another three points.
And the Hoops faithful were delighted to see Tom Rogic’s muscle memory return as the Aussie ace scored a classic on Tayside.
Stephen Mulhern, Dumbarton, said: “I had reservations about Celtic picking up three points with Jota and Tony Ralston missing but it was arguably Celtic’s best performance so far this season.
“I was also delighted to see Tom Rogic back to his best. After witnessing his goal you can close the book on goal of the season already.”
David Bryce, Troon, said: “Celtic were sensational at Tannadice. The centre backs were outstanding and Rogic is so good he could have played in any Celtic side in any era.
“My only complaint is the amount of easy chances we miss. Kyogo simply has to be more clinical however the rest of his game is top notch. Well done Bhoys.”
Kevin Kean, Inchinnan, added: “Liam Scales’ involvement is long overdue. There’s been injuries to left-backs and centre-halves and Ange hasn’t used him. We need to know what he can do, especially with Greg Taylor having been out so long and Boli Bolingoli finished at the club.”
Tam Courts has made a decent start as United boss but Ronnie Swan, Lochee, isn’t impressed after seeing the Terrors slump against Motherwell and Celtic.
“I’m trying for appropriate tags for this embarrassing so-called United team and the only thing I can think of is pathetic and cowards.
“Sadly I knew this was coming as I said last week I can’t believe the undeserved points tally this pitiful lot have amassed but now they’ve been well and truly found out. But hold on, the bold Tam says everything is terrific cause the players have good numbers in training, you couldn’t make it up – or maybe you could!”
Rangers made it a Glasgow double over the Tayside teams as they also strolled to a 3-0 win over Dundee at Ibrox on Saturday.
Alan McGaw, Alloa, said: “Great Gers performance against Dundee, who are lucky it was not 7-0. Their goalkeeper Adam Legzdins was on top form but there is a ruthless streak about Rangers in every corner.
“ Joe Aribo has been a revelation this season and deserved the man of the match award. I like the way Giovanni van Bronckhorst switches play to suit who we are playing.”
John Bruce added: “It was a comfortable and dominant win for Rangers against Dundee. Done without comical dives or blatantly off-side, game-winning goals. Just good, entertaining football, played as it should be with three Rangers goals. It could have been much more had it not been for an inspired Dundee goalkeeper. So for Gio, it’s now four out of four as he heads for 56.”
Stuart McLeod, Stepps, said: “I think James McPake is having a laugh when he stated the Rangers players were trying to get Leigh Griffiths sent off.
“Griffiths is a seasoned pro who should be able to conduct himself properly at this stage of his career. Not only did he give the Rangers fans the finger whilst warming up he committed to bookable offences whilst on the pitch. Griffiths does himself no favours with his antics on and off the park and only brings unwanted attention on himself.
“Can I also say the performance of Dundee keeper Adam Legzdins was as good as I have seen at Ibrox for many a season.”Internet Explorer Channel Network
