The manager of Celtic FC, Neil Lennon, has said that his players shouldn’t get complacent after having won the league title. He wants them to continue playing in the ruthless manner.
The Celts have absolutely blown away their opponents in the ongoing Scottish Premier League. They have already become the champions and they still have to play 7 more games. That tells a thing or two about the way they have performed this season.
Normally when the teams win the title so early, it’s become a bit hard for them to keep themselves motivated for the remaining part of the season, but, one thing that can keep the Celts motivated is the chance of setting a new record of securing the most number of points in a single season in the league.
The present record is also being held by Celtic. They had set that record way back in 2001-02 when they had managed to secure 103 points. But, they can easily go past that number this season if they maintain their form in the remaining matches.
Talking to the reporters about setting up new record, Lennon said, “If we do that, it will be great, but, the first target should be to get to 100. Then, we will see if we can get to 104 or not.”
“We can break the record of conceding the least number of goals as well. Its 15 goals that we have conceded so far this season and the record is of 18 goals. So, we have a chance there as well.”
Celtic will be taking on Ross County on Saturday. They would like to continue their winning streak in that game. They have won their last 4 matches on the bounce and that too by big margins.
