Toon To Raid Celtic For Given Replacement?

Last updated : 04 January 2009 By Footy Mad - Editor
But I'm sure Celtic fans will ask why their number one would want to give up on his chance of a Scottish title ... and God knows what else they are up for in that tin-pot two-team league in Jockoland ... for a relegation battle in the Premiership?

Given looks likely to move on, and Steve Harper must be gutted to hear Kinnear is looking for his replacement.

Celtic surrendered a two-goal lead against Dundee United in the most dramatic of fashion to give Rangers renewed hope in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier League title race yesterday.

Hoops striker Georgios Samaras scored in the 12th and 57th minutes to give the champions what appeared to be a comfortable lead at Parkhead.

However, United left-back Paul Dixon reduced the deficit on the hour mark with a wonderful free-kick and then Warren Feeney, on for Danny Swanson, grabbed a dramatic equaliser to leave the nerves jangling among the home fans in the closing stages.

Celtic go eight points clear of Rangers but the Ibrox men have the chance to reduce the deficit to five when they take on Inverness on Sunday.
