Celtic

We bring you the latest news from Celtic and Rangers.

Gordon: best yet to come

Craig Gordon believes that he can reach new heights by staying fit at Celtic. 

The Scottish stopper was superb before a move to Sunderland didn't work out, due to loss of form and injury, but he believes he can become even better than that now. 

Gordon has become Celtic's number one since moving back to Scotland and he has revealed that he is aiming to improve on his previous best. 

"Who says I can't go on and be better than I was at my peak before? I don't want to set myself that limit of getting back to where I was before," Gordon said to Sky Sports. 

"That's what I am striving to do and I want to improve. I'm more experienced now. I've had a lot of international games and played in the Premier League."

Deila reveals where he went wrong

Ronny Deila believes that he tried chaining too much when he first took charge of Celtic.

The Norwegian boss has come under pressure already because of his failure to guide the Bhoys to the Champions League, but he believes that was as he simply wasn't used to the situation he was put into upon taking charge of the Scottish champions.

"I should maybe be more me. Maybe that would have been better," Deila said to the Scottish Evening Times.

"It has been very hard because it is my first time in this situation. You can't be somebody else. You have to be yourself.

Nicky Law: playing for Rangers better than ever

Nicky Law says that he is enjoying playing for Rangers more than ever.

The increase in standard that the club have faced following promotion, combined with the new additions over the summer have made Law appreciate his time at the 'Gers and he says that it will get the best out of him as the season progresses. 

"I'm certainly enjoying it much more this season," Law said to the official site. "The increased competition for places has helped not just me but others too.

“I think you can see from the tempo in our games that it’s bringing the best out of everyone and the last four or five weeks have been the most enjoyable I’ve had here."

Wotte praises Macleod

Rangers youngster Lewis Macleod appears to be the name on everybodys' lips at the moment. 

The 'Gers academy product has burst onto the scene this season and the level of his performances have caught the eye. 

Indeed, he is now earning praise for the very top of the game with the SFA's performance director, with Mark Wotte, joining the long list of admirers.  

"We were very pleased with the comeback of Lewis, who wasn't able to play for six months. He is a very talented player," Wotte said to the Evening Times. 

"Lewis is of the level of Ryan Gauld, who is now at Sporting Lisbon."
