Skipper sets Celtic target

Celtic Scott Brown

Captain Scott Brown has challenged his Celtic side to go unbeaten until the end of the season in a bid to ensure they secure silverware.

Despite struggling at times for consistency, the Bhoys currently sit four points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, while they also have a mouthwatering Scottish Cup semi-final against Old Firm rivals Rangers on the horizon.

However, Ronny Deila’s men have come in for criticism after failing to make an impact in Europe and, as the favourites for both competitions, they would be the subject of further ire from the press and their fans alike.

Going unbeaten between now and the end of the campaign would guarantee them silverware though and having recently recovered from injury, Brown will be doing all he can to drive them forward from the centre of the park.

The 30-year-old is adamant they have the talent to get something from all of their remaining games and has urged his troops to step up their performances during the business end of the campaign.

“There is no doubt that we can go through the remaining seven league games unbeaten now – and that is exactly what we intend to do,” he told the Evening Times. “Plus there is a Scottish Cup semi-final and possible final so there is a lot for us to be looking forward to.

“There is silverware up for offer now and we know what we have to do. We have put a bit of light between ourselves and Aberdeen now and the aim is to keep moving forward now.”

Next up for the Bhoys is a trip to Motherwell on Saturday, a game they are the 1.33 favourites to win, with the draw 5.00 and the Steelmen are 9.00 outsiders.
