Celtic’s Gary Mackay-Steven eyes win against Dundee United

Celtic will take on Dundee United away from home in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.

Celtic winger Gary Mackay-Steven has been quoted as saying by the club’s official Twitter page why the game against Dundee United away from home in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday is important.

The Bhoys will take on Swedish outfit Malmo in the second leg of the Champions League playoff tie away from home on Tuesday.

That is clearly a huge game and the biggest of the season so far for the Glasgow outfit, especially as Celtic have a tough task ahead.

The Hoops won the first leg of the tie 3-2 at Celtic Park on Wednesday, and the two away goals will certainly be encouraging for Malmo.

Mackay-Steven, though, has made it clear that he and his Celtic teammates are focused on the game against United at Tannadice Park, explaining why they have to win.

Celtic, who have won the league title in Scotland for the past four seasons, have made a strong start to the 2015-16 Scottish Premiership campaign.

Ronny Deila’s side got the better of Ross County at home in their opening league game of the season, before winning away against Patrick Thistle by the same margin.

A 2-2 draw with Kilmarnock away from home followed, but the Bhoys returned to winning ways with a 4-2 triumph over Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Celtic Park on Saturday.
