Everything Callum McGregor said to Sky Sports following Celtic's 3-0 win over Dundee at Dens Park...

Callum, tell us about the qualities you had to show to get the win?

It's always a difficult game, especially when you come here and you know they're going to play a low block. It's all about trying to get that first goal and if the game stays at 0-0 then it will probably suit them. That was our intent straight away, and you can see in the first half we probably deserved a goal for our play. In the second half, you keep doing it, you keep patient and working the ball into the right areas and you'll get your rewards in the end so it was a good performance.

How key was that patience today?

That's it, that's what teams try and do by frustrating us and trying to block the box and try and force us around the outside, so we've got to show quality in different moments. That patience is key always, and we have to keep attacking the same way, the structure and trying to create chances. The more we're in that section of the box then the better chance we have of scoring.

Did you feel more in your rhythm today as a team?

I think it was a lot slicker. We were excellent the other day for 25-30 minutes and should have been two or three up. It's all about getting the ball in the back of the net, getting that confidence, and getting the boys feeling good. A good three goals today and a good three points. 

How does it set you up for the weekend?

Yeah great. Listen, it's a big game but we want big games in front of our home crowd. Everyone will be ready come Saturday.
