Don Robertson, the referee, has a busy afternoon at Dens Park as the team that is currently leading the Scottish Premiership won by a score of 3-0.

Dundee put up a valiant effort before eventually giving in to the onslaught that Celtic unleashed, and there was a lot of action to keep referee Don Robertson occupied throughout the match from start to finish.

During the first half, the team coached by Brendan Rodgers had numerous opportunities to score at home. However, they were forced to wait until the second half before Celtic loanee Paulo Bernardo was able to score the opening goal of the game. Bernardo’s goal came through the legs of goalkeeper Trevor Carson. Until Mikey Johnston came off the bench and scored a double for the away team, Tony Docherty’s squad would be able to withstand the unrelenting pressure that they were under. This allowed the away team to continue their ascent to the top of the Scottish Premiership standings.

However, if whistler Robertson had intervened, or if Greg Aitken, who was present in the video assistant referee room, had acted on multiple important flashpoints throughout the course of the 90 minutes, the score at the end of the game may have been different. The video technology has been a topic of discussion for the entirety year 2023, and it is highly likely that this trend will continue into 2024.

Cameron Carter-Vickers played for Celtic in their Premiership match against Dundee, and it was thought disappointing that he did not get a penalty kick for the team. During the first half of the match at Dens Park, the defender got involved in a physical altercation with the home team’s defender Joe Shaughnessy and the goalkeeper Trevor Carson.

It appeared as though Shaughnessy had a hold on the shirt of the Celtic defender before he let go of it. At the same time, Carson rushed over the top of Carter-Vickers and attempted to push him from behind. According to Des Roache, a former referee, who was interviewed on the Get Involved Referee podcast, the stramash was “100%” a foul. However, basketball great Scott Brown did not agree with Roache’s assessment. According to what he said with Sky, “I don’t think Carson can but his hand over him, and he (Carter-Vickers) has a little kick out at him because of it.” For my part, I don’t believe there is anything to it.”

Latest news: After Dundee’s two goals from player, Brendan Rodgers makes a statement about the future role that Mikey Johnston will play for Celtic

At Dens Park, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers was thrilled with the performance of winger Mikey Johnston, who scored twice to help Celtic to a 3-0 victory over Dundee. Johnston’s performance earned him praise from Rodgers.

Johnston entered the game with the intention of taking advantage of the fatigue that was present in the legs of the Dundee defense. He needed to create space to punish them with direct dribbling and combinations in the final third of the field.

However, his second goal was a strong finish, and the Ireland international went on to try to complete a hat trick. His first goal may be regarded the result of Trevor Carson’s mistake in goalkeeping, but his second goal was a solid finish.

It was his first goals for the Bhoys since the year 2019, and they came after he had been a starter for four games throughout the month of December.

In spite of the fact that he made a contribution on Boxing Day, it appears that starting from this point forward, he will be utilized as an impact substitute rather than being considered by the manager as a starting option.

Mikey Johnston’s Celtic role is being played by Brendan Rodgers.
“The challenge for Mikey was the fact that he had played a lot of games back to back, and he hasn’t done that much for Celtic,” the Celtic manager stated in an interview with The Scotsman that was published in December. It has the potential to boost his self-assurance.

A wonderful thing about Mikey is that he has maintained his fitness. We are continuing to work with him, and we believe that he has the potential to come into the game and make an impact. However, it is up to him to decide whether or not he will be a Celtic player. Both of the goals that he scored were a source of great satisfaction for us.

There is still no indication as to whether Johnston is interested in playing a role of that nature for the Bhoys. Until the summer of 2026, he is under contract with the team that is now the champions.

Recent interviews, on the other hand, have revealed that he has expressed a desire to be playing on a regular basis at this point in his career. Because the transfer window for the month of January is about to open, there is always the possibility that he will leave the club.

At Celtic Park, it is quite unlikely that he will ever be considered a star among the starting options. Despite the fact that he fulfills a few requirements for an impact substitute, he would have to be content with the fact that this is his position at the Bhoys.
