SPL leaders Celtic take on managerless bottom club Dundee at Parkhead on Sunday lunchtime (kick-off 12.45pm).

"We're fully focussed on what we have to do and that's to win the game" - Neil Lennon
The Hoops are looking to build upon their massive nineteen-point lead at the top at the expense of opponents who dispensed with the services of manager Barry Smith earlier this week.

Striker Georgios Samaras was set to return to action for the hosts as boss Neil Lennon mixes up his squad ahead of a busy schedule. Defender Mikael Lustig could be another being recalled.

"They can start to see there's clear daylight between us and the rest and they want to reinforce that lead, whether it be Dundee or whoever," Lennon told BBC Scotland. "We know that Dundee have had their problems this season but we're fully focussed on what we have to do and that's to win the game and try and win it well."

Dundee are currently languishing fifteen points behind the rest and still without the services of Stephen O'Donnell, Mark Kerr, Jamie McCluskey and Carl Finnigan.

The Dark Blues were hopeful of making an interim appointment ahead of the contest with Gus MacPherson and Jimmy Calderwood amongst those being linked as their next permanent manager.

Rodgers impressed with depth

Manager Brendan Rodgers said the latest victory against Dundee in the Scottish League Cup served to highlight the depth of his available squad.

Dundee 0 Celtic 4

Holders Celtic moved into the Scottish League Cup semi-finals with a 4-0 victory against Dundee at Dens Park.

The always lively Scott Sinclair's penalty earned them a first-half lead improved by James Forrest just prior to the break.

However, the Hoops were forced to wait until very late in the contest before substitute Callum McGregor and Forrest (again) added further goals.

Defender Dedryck Boyata was passed fit to play following a knee injury that had ruled him out so far
