Ronny Deila wants Celtic to remain unbeaten for the rest of the Scottish Premiership campaign.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has told reporters that his side plan to remain unbeaten between now and the end of the season.

The Bhoys are superb form in the Scottish Premiership at the moment and are on course for a fourth successive league title.

The Glasgow giants are currently six points at the top of the league table with a game in hand, having defeated second-placed Aberdeen 4-0 at Celtic Park on Sunday.

Celtic are now unbeaten in 10 Premiership games, and Deila wants the players to extend that streak to many more.

"It is possible for us to go unbeaten,” the Norwegian told reporters on Tuesday, as reported on Celtic’s official Twitter account. “These targets are nice to try to make history and stretch for something.

"I don’t know what the record is but we want to go as many games as possible. I did 48 matches at home in Norway so it’d be good to do it in Scotland as well.”

Can Celtic remain unbeaten for the rest of the season?

Not many will now suggest that Celtic will fail to win the Premiership title: they are pretty much guaranteed of winning it.

Given the form and the way the Hoops are playing at the moment, they could well win most of the remaining matches in the Premiership as well.

Although Celtic dropped points and lost games they should not have earlier in the season, they are a much better and more settled team now.
