Video: 'Sorry Stokesy,' John Guidetti nutmegs 26-year-old forward in Celtic training

Celtic FC Stands 1

The Swedish striker looked sharp in Celtic training ahead of this Saturday's clash with Dundee United.

John Guidetti produced a cheeky nutmeg on Celtic team-mate Anthony Stokes during first-team training on Friday afternoon.

Roughly three minutes and 40 seconds into the above video, the 22-year-old (the one wearing a hat) can be seen outwitting the Irishman down the right wing.

The Swede is currently on loan from Manchester City but faces an uncertain future, with the forward out of contract this summer.

Guidetti himself, meanwhile, posted a clip on Instagram of what sounds like him saying 'sorry Stokesy' and highlighting the part of the video where the nutmeg took place.

Elsewhere, Emilio Izaguirre was a frequent presence in Celtic's training video, while what looked like Craig Gordon was also on hand to make an easy save - and laugh mockingly after making it.

The jovial atmosphere will no doubt help the Bhoys head into their fourth clash with Dundee United in a row this weekend, although boss Ronny Deila will doubtlessly urge caution and focus, too.

Celtic have won two out of three games against Jackie McNamara's men - getting through in both cup competitions. They won't want to lose in the league, though, and risk missing the chance to maintain their three-point lead (or extend it to six points) of second-placed Aberdeen once again.
