Celtic’s lack of form has been well documented over the course of the last few months. Being eliminated from both European competitions to a lacklustre League Cup exit to Ross County and poor domestic league form, Rumours that the manager, Neil Lennon, had “lost the dressing room” were circling as team performances worsened. It seemed that behind the scenes, all was not well at Celtic Park
Celtic’s woes seem to have dissipated after an impressive home victory in the last Europa League fixture against Lille and a follow up league victory against Kilmarnock. As the Hoops look forward to a Scottish Cup Final on Sunday and the possiblilty of a world record Quadruple Treble, Callum McGregor lifts the lid on the preparations for the final and the atmosphere and camaraderie of the players.
Speaking to Celtic FC Official Twitter, the Scottish international said, “Training’s been excellent and we are really looking forward to the game.
“Coming out of the difficult run, you always learn when in bad situations and try to get better. Hopefully we all are better players from that experience and we’ve won two games in a row now so hopefully we can take that confidence into Sunday
“We’re all in this together. We spend 90% of our lives together. We are here to do a job for the club. We are a strong, tight knit group & it would be brilliant for the players to deliver that for the manager. We want to do it for the manager and fans.”
Celtic fans will be delighted at the comments from McGregor and it looks like there is a togetherness in the team that did seem to be lacking in the last few months and that the team will go on and make world football history and seal an unprecedented Quadruple Treble.
