John Collins sets demanding task for the Celtic squad

John Collins says that he wants Celtic to start scoring even more goals, despite them being the leading scorers in Scotland.

Celtic assistant manager John Collins has told the Glasgow Evening Times of an area where the Bhoys could still be performing better.

Celtic have been in fine form throughout the campaign and they still have a chance of winning the domestic treble, but Collins is a perfectionist.

He says that the Bhoys could be posing a greater attacking threat and he wants them to start hitting the back of the net with more regularity in the future.

"We are in a good position," he said. "We are out in front, we are winning games, not conceding, scoring goals - although we could be scoring more. We are in the driving seat but nothing is concluded yet."

Celtic have scored 63 goals over their 30 league matches this season, making them the highest scorers in Scotland, but the demands are always high at Parkhead.

If the Bhoys are to improve in this area then the signing of a striker could be key, as none of their current forwards have managed to achieve majorly impressive goalscoring figures this season.

John Guidetti and Leigh Griffiths are both in double-figures for goals, but neither have been able to push towards the 30 mark, like Kris Commons did during the previous campaign.

It means that there is an area of improvement for Celtic to work on, but considering their success this season, it could hardly be considered a particularly pressing concern.
