Celtic Diary Monday February 13: No Treble At The Base
With the league more or less done, as its unlikely Celtic will lose nine more games than anyone else between now and May, and the club advancing to the quarter final stage of the Scottish cup, a number of supporters are already talking about that rarest of things, the treble.
According to James Forrest, however, the players hardly mention it at all. At least, not in front of him.
“So far we’ve won the League Cup and have done really well in the league but it still seems a long way away.
“Even though we are into the quarters we just need to take it from there and make sure we get into the semis.
“Someone is going to need to play at their best to beat us but we have had off days as well when we’ve had to grind out results. We can do it that way.
A Celtic off day is when the other team score, or have a couple of shots on goal.
“It’s only one game a week for a few weeks now, so we need to make sure we are doing it in training and keep our levels up.
“The last couple of weeks, we’ve not had a midweek game as well, so we’ve had the training instead of having a game.
“You could maybe say it has refreshed us a bit but we just need to take every game as it comes and put 100 per cent into every one.
