Celtic: Juranovic, Carter-Vickers and Callum McGregor struggle in Dundee win

Celtic: Juranovic, Carter-Vickers and Callum McGregor struggle in Dundee win -Celtic

Celtic put in an impressive display to dispatch Dundee on Sunday lunchtime, with Ange Postecoglou’s side running out 4-2 winners.

The Hoops opened the scoring early on with Jota’s fifth goal for the club, with Kyogo Furuhashi doubling the lead shortly after. Danny Mullen then pulled one back for the hosts, but Jota and Furuhashi were at it again following the interval to put the game beyond reach and seal another three points.

However, not every player had an afternoon to remember, as The Transfer Tavern looks into the three worst-rated outfield starters by statistical specialists SofaScore following the win at Dens Park.

Josip Juranovic – 6.4/10

While Anthony Ralston starred at right-back, as he was given a 7.8 rating only bettered by Jota, Furuhashi and David Turnbull, Juranovic was actually the Hoops’ worst-rated performer according to SofaScore. He lost possession on 12 occasions and lost his only duel.

The summer signing also failed to put in a successful cross and didn’t contribute defensively with any tackles and only one clearance.

Cameron Carter-Vickers – 6.5/10

Next up is another defensive summer arrival in Carter-Vickers. The USA international has been an ever-present figure since moving to Scotland but also struggled in what was a brilliant attacking display from the Hoops, scoring four goals and having 24 shots in total.

He finished with a rating of 6.5/10, giving the ball away seven times, losing four duels and failing to make a tackle or interception throughout.

Callum McGregor – 6.7/10

Club captain McGregor is the last of Celtic’s three strugglers. The central midfielder ended with a score of 6.7/10, losing three of his four duels and giving up possession seven times.

He also made just one tackle in the middle of the park and committed two fouls.
