Stefan Johansen vows that Celtic will win the league and cup double this season

Celtic Stands

Ronny Deila's men are in a commanding position in the Scottish Premiership and have an Old Firm semi-final to look forward to.

Stefan Johansen has vowed that Celtic are going to do everything they can to ensure that they secure another league and cup double this season, The Scottish Sun reports.

The Hoops are four points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership - with a game in hand over their nearest challengers Aberdeen - and have reached the semi-final of the Scottish Cup where they will face bitter rivals Rangers for a place in the final. 

And Johansen has insisted that the team's mentality is geared to making sure that they are able to lift all available pieces of silverware at the end of the season.

"We are gonna get those two trophies. We have decided to do that. Now we are going to play every game like a cup final," he told The Scottish Sun.

While winning the double would be a great achievement for the Bhoys - as it would be their fifth league crown in a row, and would mean that they have overcome their Old Firm foes in the cup - it is unlikely to relieve all of the pressure that is on Ronny Deila's shoulders currently.

The Norwegian led the side to the double last season - winning the League Cup rather than the Scottish Cup - so a similar return this time around would lead to questioning regarding how much progress the team has actually made under his leadership, especially given their weak performance in Europe this term.
