Dalglish express slight doubt over Celtic's Treble chances

Celtic legend Kenny Dalglish has admitted he doesn't know if the Bhoys can pull off a domestic Treble.

Former Celtic striker Kenny Dalglish has explained to the Daily Mail what winning a treble would mean for current boss Ronny Deila.

Celtic are well placed on all domestic fronts to win silverware this season, as well as holding an outside chance of doing well in the Europa League but Dalglish has urged caution in terms of anticipating success.

“If you win a Treble, you win a Treble,” said Dalglish.

“If it happens, the history books would just state that Celtic won a Treble - and that should never be undermined.”

“They look comfortable, but then Celtic have looked comfortable many times before and the Treble hasn’t happened, so you don’t know.”

If the Bhoys are going to pull off a Treble win then several things have to happen, which are out of Deila’s control.

His key players have to stay fit and free of suspension, which are two factors which could leave his team weaker in big games.

If he rotates well and keeps his key players fresh then there’s no reason why they can’t have a big say on the rest of the club’s season.

Celtic also need some luck to go their way. Decisions will go for and against the Bhoys over the rest of the season and how they capitalise on luck and react to adversity will be important with regards to their chances of winning silverware.

It may sound cliché but one game at a time may be the best approach and way to manage things for the manager who could see his status at the club rocket before next season.
