Milan Misun's Dundee debut and Celtic round-up


Milan Misun

Milan Misun has become the latest in a lengthy list of Celts to go out on loan this season and has signed a one month deal with the First Division side.

A month of first team football will do Misun the world of good after missing out on the whole of last season after suffering a cruciate ligament injury in the pre-season friendly with Brisbane Roar.

Rab Douglas was the hero for the home side saving a first half penalty from John Baird.

Elsewhere in Division One former Celt Rocco Quinn scored a late winner as Queen of the South came from behind to beat Partick Thistle 2-1 with Ryan Conroy playing against the club that he spent part of last season on loan to.

Football club websites can often seem much of a muchness but the Queen of the South site is an exception. There’s a great passion to the site with quality pictures highlighting the game perfectly.

Almost 4,000 fans were at the Falkirk Stadium to watch the home side beat Morton 2-1. Jason Marr and Mark Millar were in the home side while Sean Fitzharris played 76 minutes for the visitors.

Down south in The Championship there were plenty of happy Celts with Malky Mackay, Paul Lambert, Gordon Strachan and Roy Keane all enjoying wins with Ipswich, Norwich and Watford sitting in the top five.

Malky Mackay’s Watford pulled off the result of the day with a 6-1 win away to Millwall on the back of a 2-0 win away to Bristol City in midweek.

Millwall went into the match with a ten month unbeaten home run but had no answer to the visitors who found the net with six different goalscorers.

“It’s my best result as a boss,” Malky admitted. “To come down here and earn a result like this, scoring goals and creating extra chances, is a great credit to the lads.

“It’s not an easy place to come the Den. You have to match Millwall’s work-rate and nullify their strengths. We went at them and applied ourselves from minute one.

“It’s down to team spirit – we are a young squad and maybe that helps us. We have a sense of togetherness. We have belief and ability, there are no egos- I know how tough this division can be.”

Next Saturday Watford are at home to Middlesbrough.
