De Vries may have struggled to play for Celtic since his move in the summer of 2016, but there is no doubt that the 36-year-old is a good goalkeeper.

However, there is an element of risk in playing the former Wolverhampton Wanderers and Swansea City goalkeeper, as he has not had much playing time.

Dundee are struggling for points at the moment, but an early goal from Neil McCann’s side could make it tricky for the Glasgow giants.
