  5. Post update

    Dundee goalscorer James McPake

    "We had a good start. We were unfortunate not to come away with all three points."

  6. TEXT 80295

    Zax Crossley in Grangemouth: "What Celtic are playing at I don't know. They should have never brought Berget in. Mackay-Steven would have been a much better fit with our squad and he's Scottish would have picked up the vibe straight away."

  7. FULL-TIME

    Dundee 1-1 Celtic

    Dundee extend their unbeaten run as Celtic go a fourth match without a win. A much better performance from the Scottish champions earned them a point but Dundee were impressive throughout a highly entertaining match.

  8. #bbcsportscot

    Greig Kelbie: "Celtic have looked rank rotten the entire match. @BBCSportsound #bbcsportscot."

  9. ADDED TIME

    Two minutes of stoppage time being played.

  10. CLOSE!

    Yet another chance for Dundee up their right-hand side and this time Luka Tankulic drags his shot across the face of goal.

  11. TEXT 80295

    Andy MacCormick: "I think Deila is a great manager. He just needs time. Given time, he'll be up there with McNeil, O'Neil and Stein."

    Chris Cornwall: "People are saying Celtic are going backwards. I'm old enough to remember the Brady and Macari era. 20 years and counting players not good enough to play for the club. It's like history is repeating itself. I hope I'm wrong H H."

  12. GREAT SAVE!

    Kyle Letheren beats Leigh Griffiths' powerful shot out for a Celtic corner.

  13. HITS THE WOODWORK

    But now Celtic threaten and Anthony Stokes plays a one-two with Leigh Griffiths before firing against the outside of the post.

  14. Post update

    After sustaining a period of Celtic pressure, Dundee have been much more in the game in the last 10 minutes and will feel they should be ahead again.

  15. CLOSE!

    A 25-yard strike from Dundee substitute Luka Tankulic flashes across the face of goal.

  16. CLOSE!

    And another chance for Martin Boyle. The winger jumps over Jason Denayer's challenge and drags a shot inches wide of the Celtic goal.

  17. GREAT SAVE!

    Martin Boyle speeds away and fires in an angled shot from the right, forcing a fine save from Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon.

  18. Post update

    Into the last 15 minutes. Is there to be a winner?

  19. CLOSE!

    Dundee get in on their right-hand side and Martin Boyle has a shot deflected wide by Jason Denayer. However, the officials award Celtic a goal kick, much to the hosts' frustration.

  20. Post update

    Gary Irvine makes a vital clearance deep inside the Dundee box after Kris Commons drills in a low cross.

  21. Post update

    Last substitution of the match. Nir Biton replaces Beram Kayal for Celtic.

  22. Post update

    Sportsound pundit Willie Miller at Dens Park

    "Celtic have certainly upped the pace, much, much better in the second half. Dundee are struggling."

  23. Post update

    Kris Commons' corner is met by Eoghan O'Connell's glancing header but the Celtic defender's effort drifts wide.

  24. Post update

    Leigh Griffiths' first goal of the season brought Celtic level.

  25. Post update

    Martin Boyle replaces Philip Roberts for Dundee.

  26. Post update

    Kris Commons tries to loop a volley into the net but it's an easy catch for Dundee goalkeeper Kyle Letheren.

  27. TEXT 80295

    Chris Cassidy from Wakefield: "Berget is not good enough, Peter Lawell needs to admit he got it wrong Deila has had a shocker since day 1, badly beaten in Europe and now struggling in the league, this is near enough the same team that won the league last season, Deila is not the right man for this job."

  28. YELLOW CARD

    Dundee captain Gary Irvine is cautioned for taking out Leigh Griffiths.

  29. Post update

    Around half-an-hour left at Dens Park.

  30. Post update

    Dundee make a double substitution. Simon Ferry and Luka Tankulic come on in place of Peter MacDonald and Gary Harkins.

  31. GOAL

    Dundee 1-1 Celtic (Griffiths)

    Leigh Griffiths gets away a shot from around 19 yards and a deflection off Thomas Konrad carries the ball past goalkeeper Kyle Letheren

  32. Post update

    Emilio Izaguirre's shot is blocked in a crowded Dundee box. Much more forceful play from Celtic.

  33. TEXT 80295

    John in Dundee: "dundee looking like the dark blues of old, fearless and attacking!! Great game"

    John in Manchester: "Lawell will never admit he got ht wrong. People in his position see admission as a sign of weakness & fear the backlash if seen to be negative. Another worrying day at the office."

  34. Post update

    Celtic have made a change at the break with defender Eoghan O'Connell on for Adam Matthews. Matthews has a calf injury.

  35. KICK-OFF

    Celtic begin the second half.

  36. Post update

    Second half coming up. Can Dundee claim a third straight victory or will Celtic end their run of three matches without a win?

  37. HALF-TIME

    Dundee 1-0 Celtic

    James McPake's first-minute goal still separates the sides and Dundee deserve their lead after some forceful attacking place in the opening period. Celtic almost levelled on the stroke of half-time but they have struggled and manager Ronny Deila has already brought Leigh Griffiths on from the bench to change things up.

  38. GREAT SAVE!

    Kyle Letheren keeps Dundee ahead at the break as he tips over Anthony Stokes' swirling free-kick, which appeared to miss everyone as it bounced up from near the six-yard box.

  39. #bbcsportscot

    Toniwater: "#bbcsportscot this is very poor from The Tic, serious questions need to be answered sooner rather than later! Worst Celtic side in years"

    bringthemonjpn: "#bbcsportscot Dundee just need to keep pushing forward and the three points look good"

    MBEHAN: "With VVD & Mulgrew there is no leadership in this Celtic side, Ambrose and Berget not good enough for SPFL never mind Europe #bbcsportscot"

  41. Post update

    As well as Virgil van Dijk, there's also been speculation about Griffiths, who has been linked with a return to Hibernian.

    However, Ronny Deila says he too is remaining in Glasgow, as well as Anthony Stokes.

  42. Post update

    Leigh Griffiths comes on in place of Jo Inge Berget. No sign of an injury for the Norwegian, it appears Celtic manager Ronny Deila is wanting more from his attackers.

  43. Post update

    Kris Commons returned to the Celtic line-up as captain but has endured a frustrating match so far.

    Celtic forward Kris Commons
  44. Post update

    Beram Kayal is off balance as he curls a shot high and wide of the Dundee goal.

  45. TEXT 80295

    Chuck from Ayr: "Celtic dont have a defense, no midfield and no decent strikers. Who's LAWELL kidding saying that Delias the man & will get it RIGHT!?"

  46. Post update

    Rob Maclean

    BBC Radio Scotland commentator

    "Celtic are so, so vulnerable at the back and they're not great at decision-making, which is a bad combination."

  47. CLOSE!

    A long ball from Philip Roberts is chased by Peter MacDonald, who gets there just before goalkeeper Craig Gordon only to lift a shot wide.

  48. TEXT 80295

    Let me know your thoughts via text on 80295.

  49. Post update

    Not such an impressive effort on this occasion from Philip Roberts as his low shot trundles into the hands of Craig Gordon but the Dundee winger is eager to cut in from the right at every opportunity.

  50. YELLOW CARD

    Celtic's Emilio Izaguirre is booked for a late challenge on Philip Roberts.

  51. Post update

    Manager Paul Hartley issues instructions from the technical area as Dundee seek to build on their early lead.

  52. Post update

    Philip Roberts is causing Celtic all sorts of problems on Dundee's right-hand side. Emilio Izaguirre is struggling to contain the winger.

  53. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Philip Roberts speeds away from Emilio Izaguirre and slams a shot across Craig Gordon that the goalkeeper just turns onto the far post

  54. Post update

    Peter MacDonald is in the mood today. The experienced forward beats two Celtic defenders as he cuts in from the left and only a Jason Denayer block prevents the eventual shot troubling Craig Gordon.

  55. CLOSE!

    Good move from Dundee as Peter MacDonald and Philip Roberts exchange passes but the latter's cross is just too far in front of the striker.

  56. Post update

    Celtic are almost in with Kris Commons in behind Dundee's defence but he loses his footing, allowing goalkeeper Kyle Letheren to smother the ball.

  57. Post update

    This was the moment Dundee went ahead with McPake jumping highest to make the crucial connection.

  58. Post update

    It's certainly been an exciting start to the match and there's been very little let-up from either side with Celtic particularly showing more urgency since the James McPake goal.

  59. GREAT SAVE!

    Anthony Stokes shows strength as he holds off James McPake and gets away a shot but Dundee goalkleeper Kyle Letheren gets down to make the save.

  60. Post update

    Now Celtic threaten with Kris Commons bursting into the inside left channel and looping a right-foot shot wide of the far post.

  61. CLOSE!

    It almost gets better for Dundee as Peter MacDonald runs on to Gary Harkins' headed knock-down and sees his dipping half-volley deflected wide.

  62. Post update

    Rob Maclean

    BBC Radio Scotland commentator

    "An absolute stunner of a start from Dundee>"

    "Hopefully the players can put on a good performance."

  68. Post update

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila

    "He's going to stay here and that's the most important thing. He is very important for us.

    "He's not here today because there's been a lot of speculation and he has been thinking a lot. He also has a pregnant girlfriend at home. He was not 100% focussed.

    "I'm really looking forward to the game. It's very important. Dundee are an offensive team and they've been good so far."
