Celtic victory will help Tangerines, Dundee United star warns

Rado Cierzniak is confident that Dundee United can finally get a result against Celtic.

Speaking to The Courier, Dundee United goalkeeper Rado Cierzniak believes that there is one reason the Terrors will be able to record a victory over Celtic.

United have already played Celtic twice consecutively, and they face the Bhoys in two more successive games in March.

A 1-1 draw in the Scottish Cup quarter-finals was followed up with a 2-0 loss in the League Cup Final on Sunday. This week they play another quarter-final tie with the Bhoys, before their Scottish Premiership tie at the weekend.

With one draw and one loss to their name so far, the Tangerines will be keen to finally pick up a positive result this mid-week, and goalkeeper Rado Cierzniak - who has impressed in the two fixtures against Celtic - is confident that the Tannadice club can pick up a win from Ronny Deila’s men due to the two previous results - with the complacency that has set it.

Having drawn and won a game, Cierzniak believes that Celtic will enter the third fixture in the knowledge that a victory will be easy, due to recent results, and that will make the Bhoys an easier target to take advantage of.

Speaking to The Courier, the Polish stopper said: “We are thinking about Wednesday now and I think we can beat them because Celtic will think, at the moment, that it is easy to beat us. So I really believe we can get a good result at Celtic Park.

“They can think what they want but I believe we can win and get back to Hampden for the semi-final. The motivation is strong for us and everything is possible in this game.”
