Stefan Johansen sends message to teammates on Twitter after Celtic's 2-1 win

Celtic Football Club

Celtic midfielder Stefan Johansen congratulated his teammates on their win over Dundee.

Celtic bounced back from their controversial Scottish Cup semi final loss to Inverness by getting their league challenge back on track.

They travelled to Dundee for a potentially tricky tie, but made light work of it. Celtic were comfortable throughout, scoring a goal in each half.

Only an 87th minute consolation set up a nervous finish but Celtic held on to claim the three points.

Key midfielder Stefan Johansen was rested for the fixture, was watching on intently, and sent a message to goalscorers Gary Mackay-Steven and Virgil van Dijk after the game.

Celtic may have missed out on their domestic treble ambition, but with the Scottish League Cup already in the bag, there is a strong chance they now kick on and add the Scottish Premiership to their collection.

A loss here would have led to real questions being asked heading into the final weeks of the campaign, but they have now re-opened up an eight point leader over closest rivals Aberdeen.
