'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United host champions

Dundee United welcome newly-confirmed champions Celtic to Tannadice this weekend for a Saturday lunchtime clash with a 12.45pm kick-off.

The Tangerines can welcome back striker Nadir Ciftci and defender Andrew Robertson from suspension while on loan Newcastle United defender Curtis Good remains sidelined by a hip problem. Fellow centre-back Calum Butcher (leg) is a current doubt.

"Celtic deserve to be champions," manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Scotland. "They have been the best team again and shown very high levels of consistency. They have got to where they want to be and it's happened with a few games still to go.

"But that doesn't mean they are about to slacken off in any way," he warned. "I'm sure they will approach this game as they would any other one. They will want to win it because they are a group of professionals who always want the best."

Celtic are missing Adam Matthews, Charlie Mulgrew (both hamstring) and Darnell Fisher (knee), while Nir Biton, James Forrest and Derk Boerrigter are longer-term casualties.
