THEY'RE already being touted to go the whole campaign undefeated. But Celtic's impressive record could come under serious threat as early as this weekend from a rather unlikely source.

So far the league leaders have won 13 out of 14 league games and are apparently cruising towards the title with the only blemish a 2-2 draw away to Inverness Caledonian Thistle back in September.

Dundee, their next opponents, have the task of attempting to inflict defeat upon the champions when they head for Parkhead this coming Saturday.

Paul Hartley's men don't exactly have the look of team that might mastermind a shock in Glasgow's east end, especially in the wake of Saturday's stalemate against Ross County which kept them two points above bottom-club Partick Thistle.

Yet there's a quite confidence within the Dens Park camp which was illustrated by no-one more than Marcus Haber, their Canadian international striker, who holds little fear about the upcoming trip to Celtic Park.

Rodger's side have already secured their first piece of silverware in the form of the League Cup thanks to their recent rout of Aberdeen, and the talk of them is not only about striding towards the title but surviving the entire season without incurring a single loss in the league.

Haber, who missed a late opportunity to give Dundee the three points against County, maintains the Tayside club will be spurred on by the thought of disproving such a lofty prediction.

“Every game is a motivation but if you can’t get up for a game there, you shouldn’t be playing," said Haber. “There will be a big crowd and we are all looking forward to it.

“I don’t think you approach anything as a mission impossible.

“We are all footballers and professionals so we are going to go there with the outlook to do the best we can to get a result. We are obviously going to do a lot of work in training about shape and organisation. That is going to be crucial. We are going to go there with no pressure on us and put out best foot forward.

“We have a good manager who is organised and well respected so we are ready to do whatever he asks of us. We will be up for it. and we will be ready.”

Haber had looked all set to give the hosts the lead when he found himself clean through from team-mate Kevin Gomis' 75th-minute punt forward, but the 27-year-old former St Johnstone man dragged his shot wide of Scott Fox's goal.

The towering striker, though, has been a revelation since joining the Tayside outfit back in October and reckons they've got over the worst of their recent woes which not so long ago saw them languishing at the foot of the table.

“I am disappointed as I would have fancied myself to score in that position," said Haber. “But keeping a clean sheet at home is pleasing and our home form has been good so we are looking to build on that for sure.”

The result did nothing to demist the fog that has enveloped the relegation play-off picture. Michael Gardyne, the Ross County attacker, believes the bottleneck at the bottom means teams could require a top-six finish finish just to avoid slipping into the danger zone.

County feel aggrieved that they did not move into the top half after Liam Boyce's 48th-minute header disallowed for a push on Dundee captain Darren O'Dea and Gardyne was disappointed that County had spurned the opportunity.

“It's looking that tight that we might need to get into the top-six to be safe," he said. "It's going to be massive. A win here would have put us in the top-six.

"The league is a bit crazy this season. The way it’s going just now it could just be like this until the end of the season.”
