Scott Brown is confident his Celtic side will bounce back from their disappointing 1-1 draw against Ross County when they face Hearts on Saturday.

The Bhoys were again below-par on Sunday against the Staggies to invite further ire from their supporters following the recent Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Old Firm rivals Rangers.

With boss Ronny Deila last week revealing he will leave Parkhead in the summer, these are intriguing times for the Glasgow club.

Despite the disappointment of their performance on Sunday, they did extend their lead over Aberdeen to nine points and could claim a fifth straight title if they better the Dons’ result at the weekend.

Winning the league would only offer scant consolation for what has been an otherwise tough campaign for the Bhoys, but Brown is confident they will be able to produce a performance at Tynecastle.

“We have had a couple of hard results recently, but we still have a league title to win,” the captain was quoted as saying on Monday. “We have a huge game coming up on Saturday against Hearts and if we can do it there it would be great.

“We know we have let ourselves down in the last couple of weeks, but football is a game of chances and hopefully this week we can bounce back.”

He added: “We have not been producing the right results as we should be and have let ourselves down – we know that. But we need to get ourselves together and get back to winning ways.”

Celtic are 1.57 to claim all three points in the capital, while the draw is 4.20 and the Maroons are priced at 5.25.
