Celtic media round-up: Bhoys youngster delighted to be playing with these two stars


We bring you the latest news from Celtic from across the web.

Henderson on new addition

Liam Henderson insists he is pleased that Celtic signed Stuart Armstrong and Gary Mackay-Steven on deadline day. 

The former Dundee United duo have reduced Henderson's chances of breaking into the first-team, but the 18-year-old feels that he can learn a lot from the new arrivals. 

“It’s brilliant for me that the two lads have signed, even if they are also midfielders like me," he told the Daily Record

“Stuart is a quality player and I’m learning from him already in training. He and Gaz are both lovely guys and I’m looking forward to working with them."

Dalglish on Celtic's Europa League chances

Kenny Dalglish says that Celtic's chances of winning the Europa League are slim this season, even if the treble is a possibility.

The Bhoys take on Inter Milan in the next round of Europe's secondary competition and Dalglish believes that it could be a tough obstacle for them to overcome.

"The Europa League would be a big ask, but Celtic look in pole position in the Premiership," Dalglish told the Daily Mail. "They look comfortable, but then Celtic have looked comfortable many times before and the Treble hasn’t happened, so you don’t know."

McNamara optimistic

Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara says that his side are capable of beating Celtic in the League Cup final. 

United go into the game as the heavy underdogs to lift the trophy, but McNamara insists that his team will be able to pull off an upset. 

"We beat Celtic up at Tannadice in the last game so I'm sure we'll take heart from that and hopefully we'll do the same again," he said to the Belfast Telegraph.

"Somebody has to beat them if they're going to win the cup because they will be the favourites. I don't see why it can't be us."
