Wanyama told Celticquicknews.co.uk when asked if he still watches Celtic and what he thinks of their unbeaten run: “Yeah I watch a lot of games when I have a chance especially the Glasgow derbies.

“Brendan Rodgers has done well. Going unbeaten is a very big statement he has taken them to the next level.”

Celtic are head and shoulders above the rest of the teams in Scotland and have some of the best players in the Scottish Premiership.

While some will point out that Brendan Rodgers’s side do not have to face much competition in Scotland, but the fact is that the players still have to remain focused and have to actually play for the entire 90 minutes.
