Celtic's Jason Denayer says he is determined to get a run of wins going by beating FC Astra in the Europa League tomorrow night.

Celtic winger Jason Denayer is determined to help his side kick-start their season by collecting a run of wins.

The Bhoys have been in better form since an alarming loss to Hamilton and Denayer is aiming to ensure that side keep their momentum up.

Celtic picked up a 5-0 win against Ross County at the weekend and, therefore, they face FC Astra in the Europa League full of confidence. 

It is a good opportunity for them to continue to build on the more positive feeling around the club at the moment, and move into a commanding position in their European group, and Denayer is determined to help them to the three points.

“We’re confident going into these games but we want to win all of the games," he said to the club's official site. "We don’t want to just win these two games and think ‘That’s okay’, we want to win the matches after that as well.”

The pressure is on Celtic to start performing soon, as they are already having to play catch-up in the league.

So far their European form, since losing in the Champions League, has been encouraging, though, and they will want to ensure they remain unbeaten in their group against Romanian opposition on Thursday night.

It is a game which Ronny Deila's side will be the favourites to win, but Denayer thinks that it could be a tough test and Astra will come to frustrate.

“They might play the way most teams play when they come to Celtic Park and get behind the ball and play on the counter-attack," he said. "We will have to be patient and play our own game."
