Celtic's Jason Denayer says he signed to win trophies and now wants the treble

One of Celtic's young players has been speaking to the club's official website.

Celtic defender Jason Denayer has been speaking to the club’s official website following the Bhoys’ Scottish League Cup triumph against Dundee United.

Ronny Deila’s side won 2-0 courtesy of goals from Kris Commons and James Forrest, and 19-year-old Denayer was subsequently rewarded with the first major trophy of his fledgling career.

The Belgian has played 31 times for Celtic already this season, but Sunday’s match is likely to be his favourite so far.

“I came here to win trophies and now I have experienced that,” the Celtic defender said.

“We all want to win the treble and now we will focus on the next game and working hard like we did on Sunday.”

Celtic’s cup triumph is the first significant step on the road to a potential treble, with the Scottish Premiership and the Scottish Cup still up for grabs.

To win the latter, Celtic will have to overcome Dundee United yet again, with the replay of their quarter-final tie scheduled for this Wednesday evening.

With a league match against the same opposition on the horizon, the two sides will clearly know everything there is to know about each other soon enough, but the question is: Will Denayer and his teammates be adding another domestic cup to the one they have already secured in due course?
