Ex-Celtic keeper can’t believe Adam Idah action for Dundee goal

Former Celtic goalkeeper Pat Bonner has said that he was surprised by Adam Idah’s positioning just before his own goal offered Dundee hope in Sunday’s meeting at Dens Park. The Scottish Champions looked to create more upfront when Idah replaced Kyogo; however, the Norwich loanee set up a nervy ending to the game after his outstretched leg deflected the ball beyond Joe Hart.

Speaking to BBC Sportsound, Bonner expressed his surprise at the placement of Idah, which delayed the striker in getting out and maintaining the Celtic line moments before the Ireland Internationalist deflected a shot into his own net.

“I want to go back to the to the corner and the goal. I can’t believe that Adam Idah has gone into the near post area when he’s six foot whatever and he’s got to be picking up that six-yard box where the ball was landing in and he can deal with it. He was the last man coming out. He’s almost out of the game for those corners.”

It is an interesting point that Bonner raises regarding the positioning of Idah at set pieces. The talisman is excellent in the air and this should be utilised. Although, he probably should have got out quicker, which would have left the ball to carry harmlessly into Hart’s gloves.
