‘Celtic should not be underestimated’ - Dyer

Sat 12 December 2020 | 18:33

Alex Dyer believes underestimating Celtic due to their poor form is ‘foolish.’

Celtic

bowed out of the

Europa League

, but that didn’t mean they could not defeat Lille on Thursday. Since

Alex Dyer

started managing the team,

Kilmarnock 

have earned two ties and seven points against Celtic. Dyer’s squad is holding on to hope but not considering Celtic’s form.

We always think we can go to places and get something, that’s just our mindset,

” Dyer said.

But we would be foolish if we are thinking we are going to go there like the two other teams and pick up a result and it’s going to be easy. I don’t think so.

“They are going through a little bit of a dodgy time, they are maybe a little bit low in confidence, but they have just had a good win and we know it’s going to be a tough game.

“But we will set ourselves up the way we do and hopefully be hard to beat and try and get something out the game

.”

Kille manager is intimidated by the likes of Callum McGregor and Ryan Christie and believes assuming they are vulnerable is not wise.

Dyer said: “

We know it’s going to be tough, we know they are good players. They are a very good side.

“I have had the privilege to work with some of those players in the national set-up and I know what their characters are about.

“We know we have to be at our best to go there and get anything. That’s what we want to do

.

Since I have been up here, Celtic have dominated. This is the first bad patch I think they have had, so-called bad patch. It’s just a little blip.

“Anyone who goes there thinking they are playing a weakened Celtic side is very foolish.”
