After winning their first piece of silverware of the season by defeating Motherwell to win the League Cup, Celtic are on course to win a historic Double Treble of domestic trophies and do so by not losing a single game.

Brendan Rodgers’ side won all three Scottish competitions last season without suffering a defeat and as we’re about to enter December, they’re on course to repeat their outstanding achievement.

No team in the history of Scottish football has ever won back-to-back Trebles but Roberts says that the quality of players in the Celtic squad means that they’re more than capable of making history, but insists that everyone connected with the club will be taking things one game at a time.

Liam Moore responds to reports linking him with move to Celtic

  Liam Moore responds to reports linking him with move to Celtic Reading defender Liam Moore is a reported January transfer target for Celtic and the 24-year-old has admitted that he is aware of the speculation linking him with a move to the Scottish champions. Brendan Rodgers is reportedly keen to add depth to his defence when the winter transfer window opens and he is apparently an admirer of Moore. When asked about the stories linking him with a move to Celtic Park, he said: “I just try and concentrate on my job. I’m just happy playing football. I always have in the back of my mind those times when I wasn’t getting any game time. That was only two years ago now, I’m lucky and thankful to be here doing what I’m doing and playing games. Speculation comes and so be it, it’s part of the job.” Reading fought off interest from Leeds United to sign Moore from Leicester City back in August 2016 and the move has worked out well for both the player and the club, so the Royals will not be keen to let him leave. However, if Celtic make a big offer, they may have no choice but to accept but the reported fee of £5miliion seems too low for the Championship side to even consider selling one of their best players.

He said:

“We have to believe and the manager believes in us. We will keep plugging away and moving on for the games. At the end of the year we can look back and hopefully we can do the same thing. You can see the quality in our side. You see the players who start and who are on the bench.”

Celtic’s next game away to Motherwell on Wednesday night and The Steelmen will be keen for revenge after losing in the cup final, so Roberts and co. will need to be on their games to keep their magnificent run going.
