Gary Mackay-Steven on what was ‘instilled’ in him when he moved to Celtic

Celtic

Gary Mackay-Steven joined Celtic from Scottish Premiership rivals Dundee United in the January transfer window.

Celtic winger Gary Mackay-Steven has spoken to Celtic View of the winning mentality that has been "instilled" in him even since he moved to the club.

The 24-year-old joined the Bhoys from Scottish Premiership rivals Dundee United in the January transfer window.

Mackay-Steven made the move from United to Celtic along with Stuart Armstrong, who is a 22-year-old central midfielder.

Both players have been playing well for the Hoops and have featured pretty regularly since joining Ronny Deila’s team.

Mackay-Steven has now revealed the change he observed when he first came to Celtic.

“There’s a winning mentality here and anything else is no good so that’s been instilled in me and Stuart Armstrong since we came here and that winning mentality around the dressing room is great to be part of,” the 24-year-old told Celtic View. “We want to experience that.”

Celtic are arguably the biggest club of Scotland and have historically dominated Scottish football along with Rangers.

There is huge pressure on players to succeed at the Bhoys, and it seems that Mackay-Steven was made clear of that when he joined the team.

Mackay-Steven is only 24 years of age, and one suspects that he is very ambitious and is looking to improve.

Playing at Celtic will help the winger do just that, and from his performances so far, it seems that he is on the right track.
