Celtic full-back Kieran Tierney holds treble desire

Celtic full-back Kieran Tierney is hopeful his side can claim the domestic treble this season although he knows they still have work to do.

The Bhoys have already claimed League Cup glory this term after beating Aberdeen in the final in November.

They are also 24 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership standings and will face St Mirren in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup next month.

The Glasgow giants last claimed the domestic treble in 2001 and Celtic supporter Tierney admits it would be amazing to repeat the feat.

“I have to be honest and say that I don’t really remember the last time that Celtic won a treble as I was quite young,” he said.

“But at home we had all the DVDs and I always knew about the games and what had happened.

“It feels like a privilege to be in a position that we are now where we have the chance to achieve something like that.”

Brendan Rodgers’ side are yet to taste defeat domestically this season, winning 24 of their 25 league games to date, but Tierney insists the manager is doing a good job at keeping everyone’s feet firmly on the ground.

“We don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves,” he added.

“I think the gaffer has made it clear that it is always about who is up next and if we can focus on that then the rest should take care of itself.”

Celtic are next in action when they host struggling Hamilton in the league on Saturday. The Bhoys are 1.10 to win while the Accies are available at 19.00 and the draw is 10.00.
