A first-half header from Glenn Loovens and a deflected Georgios Samaras strike seven minutes after the break had appeared to take the game beyond the Tannadice men.[LNB]However, David Robertson's strike after 57 minutes ensured a tension-filled end to the game but the champions hung on to go back to the top of the SPL.[LNB]Levein told Setanta Sports 1: "We missed too many chances. You come somewhere like Celtic Park and you have to take your chances.[LNB]"In the second half apart from (Shunsuke) Nakamura's chance I didn't think we were under pressure.[LNB]"We had great opportunities but we didn't score, when you have them you have to score but we didn't."[LNB]Dundee United next go to Hearts who are one point ahead in third and Levein is targeting third in the table, saying: "I can't ask for any more than that.[LNB]"The important thing is to go to Tynecastle and do ourselves justice.[LNB]"That's the way I look at it. That is where we want to be every season. We'll handle it."[LNB]Goalscorer Loovens acknowledged the Glasgow side had made life difficult for themselves after letting the opposition back into the game at 2-0.[LNB]"We are happy with the three points," Loovens added on Setanta Sports 1.[LNB]"At times we played some great football but at 2-0 it should be be over - but we made it too hard for ourselves in the end.[LNB]"We knew we had to be strong in the end to defend the three points."[LNB]Rangers travel to Hibernian on Wednesday and Loovens admits Celtic are also dependent on their city rivals to drop points.[LNB]"We are depending on them to lose points and we have to make sure we win our next two games. The pressure is on them now," he added.[LNB][LNB]
