Forrest on improvements

Celtic supporters have become frustrated with James Forrest's apparent lack of desire in recent times, but they will be pleased with his latest comments.

Forrest's application has been criticised, with his work-rate on the pitch sometimes lacking, but the winger realises his flaws.

“I know I need to work harder than I have before because of my injuries," he told Celtic's official site. "When you start getting injuries you start to learn how to handle it and you perhaps take yourself out of training here or there but everyone gets them."

Deila: So much to fight for

Ronny Deila wants his Celtic side to fight to the last this campaign, even if they have got a commanding lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership. 

The Bhoys are way clear of any of their nearest rivals, but Deila is determined not to let his side take their foot of the gas, as they look to win the domestic treble. 

"There is still so much to fight for," he told the Daily Mail. 'We are working here on the culture, every day, to be 100 per cent every day.

"I have no reason to be worried because I haven’t once seen the players have a bad attitude or a lack of concentration. I am really looking forward to the game and I expect a good performance and hopefully a good result."

Deila wants to learn from Leverkusen 

Celtic manager Ronny Deila says that he wants his team to learn from the display which Bayer Leverkusen put in against Atletico Madrid last week.

Leverkusen beat the La Liga champions and the tenacity of their display is something Deila believes his Bhoys squad can learn from. 

“I was inspired last Wednesday in Milan when I watched Bayer Leverkusen against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on TV.

“The intensity of Leverkusen was unbelievable, so I try to take something of the sprinting they showed and put it into my team," he said to the Daily Record
