Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has hailed his side's display after they beat Dundee 2-1 at Dens Park on Sunday. 

Goals from Simunovic and Armstrong edged the Glasgow giants closer to another league title although Dundee responded with a screamer from El Baktaoui.

Speaking to the club's official website after the game, he said: "It was a very good victory for us and I thought in parts of the game we were excellent. We started a little bit slow and I thought we started to find our rhythm later in the first-half. Opportunities were coming higher up the field and we got a goal we deserved.

“I thought we started the second-half really well. We had good composure and looked threatening. We got a wonderful second goal from great build-up play. It was a perfect example of a goalkeeper having the ability to use his feet. It was super. It started with Craig and you could see his joy when we scored.”

Celtic are unbeaten in domestic competition this season and sit 25 points clear at the top of the table. One more win will see them crowned league champions again. They travel to Tynecastle to play Hearts after the international break.
