Virgil van Dijk scores Celtic's fourth goal in their Scottish Cup quarter final replay win over Dundee United on Wednesday night

Dundee United could be forgiven if they are suffering from irritable footballers syndrome after three failed attempts to beat Celtic in less than a fortnight.

Today's Scottish Premiership clash between the sides at Parkhead will be their fourth meeting in 14 days. In the one draw and two Hoops victories, six red cards have been handed out, four for the Tannadice men, and there is the likelihood of more today.

Both camps have been sniping at each other since Celtic's home 4-0 Scottish Cup quarter-final replay win over Jackie McNamara's men on Wednesday night, when Anthony Stokes was among those to be given his marching orders.
