Mikael Lustig targets treble-winning season

Sweden international Mikael Lustig is hoping Celtic can maintain their impressive standards this season and complete the domestic treble.

Celtic, who appointed former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers last summer, have been in sensational form in the Scottish Premiership this season and they are well on course to lifting the trophy for a sixth straight year.

The Bhoys are 19 points clear of Rangers at the top of the table, with a game in hand, and it would take a monumental collapse for the leaders to lose their grip on the title.

Everything appears to be running smoothly at Celtic Park this term and there was more good news coming out of the club on Wednesday with Lustig penning a new deal.

The right-back has been back to his best in this campaign after an injury-plagued time in recent years and he has signed a two-year extension that runs until May 2019.

Celtic have already won the Scottish League Cup this season and, with the league title seemingly wrapped up, all that would be left to complete the treble is the Scottish Cup.

Rodgers’ men travel to Albion Rovers on Sunday for a fourth round Cup clash and the visitors are 1.07 favourites, a draw is priced at 12.00 while the hosts are massive 34.00 outsiders.

Lustig is optimistic his side have a great chance of winning all three domestic trophies after the solid platform they have built for themselves.

He said: “We have a chance to take the treble now and we’ve obviously not done that yet, but everyone wants to just continue to develop as a team, continue to play against good sides and learn.”
