Managers Reaction

Dundee Utd boss Tam Courts: “You can see they are a very slick outfit, they have got a strong squad and a lot of top performers, and we probably allowed them to get too much control and too much rhythm in the early part of the game.” he added. “That was partly because they are very good players and partly because we just couldn’t get our distances right to get any real control in the game, or at least make some physical contact.”

Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou: “He’s [Rogic] just one of those players. When he gets the ball, put down your phones, stop eating and drinking, just watch – because something will happen.” he added. “And it’s not just his technique. He’s a strong player, hard to knock off the ball. United have a strong team in the middle of the park, they’re physical and they shut teams down – and it’s not an easy pitch.”
