Celtic's Craig Gordon speaks honestly about their treble chances

Craig Gordon has been talking about Celtic's chances of winning the treble.

Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has been speaking to the club’s official website ahead of their Scottish Cup clash with Dundee United this weekend.

The two sides face each other twice in the space of a week, with the final of the Scottish League Cup on the horizon, but for now all focus will be on this encounter.

The Bhoys could win the treble this season, and Gordon has been speaking about the chance of that being achieved under Ronny Deila.

“It doesn’t happen very often for very good reasons,” the Celtic stopper said.

“Winning two cup competitions and the league is a very difficult thing to do.”

Tempering expectations he added, “We are still in a massive fight and there are still a lot of games to go before we can start even thinking about that.”

Trebles and quadruples may be the attention-grabbing words in headlines, but players like Gordon, who have been around the block a few times, know just how hard it is turning fantasy into reality.

Because that is what winning practically everything in a single season is: fantasy football; not impossible by any means, but the culmination of a campaign where everything goes in your favour.

Two matches against Dundee United will go a huge way to determining just how this season is remembered at Celtic Park, but then so will plenty of matches thereafter.
