Fans have moved to laud the performance of Benjamin Siegrist after the Dundee United keeper made a multitude of saves in a 0-0 draw with Celtic.

The Swiss keeper was a huge reason why Micky Mellon’s side managed to take a point from their meeting with Celtic, Siegrist making the most saves of any goalkeeper in one Scottish Premiership match this season.

While a lot of these efforts were straight at him, the Dundee United man had to be smart on a number of occasions too. Odsonne Edouard had a couple of good chances, David Turnbull went close and Leigh Griffiths had a last-minute header denied.

It was a good performance from Dundee United but a damaging one all the same in their bid for the top six. It now leaves them three points off sixth, needing an eight-point swing on the final day before the split to catch St Mirren, Aberdeen up next at Tannadice.

It also ends Celtic dominance in the Scottish Premiership. They needed a win to stop Rangers from winning the title but now the Gers have ended the Hoops’ chances of 10 titles in succession. Fans have lauded Siegrist in the wake of this match.
