Celtic's Nir Biton explains what is 'not ideal' ahead of cup final

The Celtic player has been looking ahead to his first cup final.

Celtic midfielder Nir Biton has been speaking to the club’s official website ahead of their Scottish League Cup final clash against Dundee United.

The defensive midfielder has been impressive all season, growing into a vital part of Ronny Deila’s side, and this weekend he has the chance to win his first cup final.

Celtic are getting very familiar with the Dundee United players, as their encounters in various competitions mean they will ultimately face-off four times in two weeks.

Now Biton has been speaking about what facing the same team so much in quick succession feels like.

“It’s not ideal to play against the same team four times in two weeks but we are professional and will do our best to win all four games,” Biton said.

The 23-year-old will be a vital part of Deila’s side as they look to end the season on a high, winning all three trophies still available to them.

That could start this afternoon but Dundee United have already shown they can match the Bhoys after their 1-1 draw in the Scottish Cup quarter-final.

That tie will require a replay, but by then either Celtic or United will have one trophy in the bag.
