Conor Hazard has returned to Dundee on loan from Celtic following a successful emergency stint earlier this season.

After an appendix problem with number one Jack Hamilton, James McPake moved to bring the Celtic stopper to Dens Park.

It was only supposed to be on an emergency basis. In the end though, Hazard ended up playing five matches for the Dee before returning back to Parkhead.

McPake has now moved to get him on loan until the end of the season. Hazard will fully compete with Hamilton for the number one shirt at Dundee as they look to earn promotion back to the Premierships.

The league title looks out of reach now but the play-offs are achievable. They’ll need to pick up their form though to maintain their current fourth position, losing three on the bounce without a goal scored.

Hazard will look to provide a competitive edge to the Dundee goalkeeper department following his arrival from Celtic. Meanwhile, McPake has shifted one of his summer signings.

Danny Johnson has returned south of the border. After failing to find regular starts following a summer move from Motherwell, Dundee have allowed him to join Leyton Orient. Johnson scored five goals in 11 starts this term.
