Dundee announced the emergency loan signing of Celtic goalkeeper Conor Hazard after an injury to Jack Hamilton, and since then, the Northern Ireland international has been solid.

The Celtic stopper has already featured on three occasions and the Dee have won every game, with James McPake’s men currently sitting in the Championship play-off spots.

Hazard has brought a calming presence to the backline.

Hazard has impressed since he swapped Celtic for Dundee

Just days after his announcement, Hazard was thrown into the Dee starting line up against Ayr. McPake’s side recorded a big win and the Northern Irishman was decent throughout.

He commanded his box and came for plenty of crosses, providing reassurance for the Dee backline. It helped his side go on to record a crucial 2-1 win.

In his next outing against Alloa he was equally solid, albeit he didn’t have a great deal to do. Hazard dealt with what was thrown at him though in a 3-0 win over Alloa.

Another win came during a 2-1 triumph over Morton. Again he didn’t have an awful lot to do in terms of shot stopping, but his handling and commanding of the box was once again assured.

Hazard’s not been particularly busy in every game, but when called upon, the Northern Irish stopper has been solid. He’s made saves when he’s had to, made no key errors and his presence in the 18-yard box is apparent.

It’s so far so good for Hazard in Tayside.
