The two impressive qualities which are becoming obvious with every Celtic performance

Celtic are becoming consistent in two vital areas, which bodes well for the rest of the season.

Four different goalscorers got on the score sheet for Celtic yesterday as Ronny Deila’s side saw off title rivals Aberdeen in the Scottish Premier League.

It was an impressive performance from the Bhoys after a difficult game in the Europa League last week.

They could have let their heads drop, which would have affected their performance yesterday but they showed great determination to react well and there are two positives, which are becoming evident in every Celtic performance at the moment.

Firstly, the Bhoys are getting a variety of players into the penalty area, which is increasing the number of goal threats they are posing to the opposition.

A defender, midfielder and forward all scored in the big win yesterday (although Leigh Griffiths’ goal was a penalty) and that shows the impressive variety in Celtic’s attacking play.

It makes them more difficult for opposition sides to deal with in terms of their all-round performance. Keep one area of the side quiet, another steps up to cash in and make the difference.

The other positive, which is becoming noticeable in every Bhoys performance is the impressive fitness levels of the team.

Celtic captain Scott Brown stressed the positives of the side’s current fitness levels in the Scotsman before the tie against Inter started and there don’t seem to be any signs of fatigue setting in.

The advantage that superior fitness levels give Celtic is that they allow them to stay on edge, giving that little bit more later into games.

Maintaining that impressive fitness level is important because it can be the difference late into matches; when the opposition lose a bit of concentration, Celtic are right there ready to take advantage.

Maintaining both qualities over the rest of the season should definitely propel Deila’s team to multiple pieces of silverware.
