Celtic assistant manager Chris Davies spoke to the media today ahead of Celtic’s game at the weekend against St Johnstone.

Unsurprisingly, a topic that came up for discussion was Celtic’s battling peformance on Tuesday night against Bayern Munich at Celtic Park.

The Bhoys were extremely unlucky to lose 2-1 the Bundesliga leaders, with the likes of Kieran Tierney, James Forrest and Callum McGregor all turning in excellent performances.

Tierney showed why so many clubs are interested in signing him, Forrest had quite possibly his best game in a Celtic shirt and McGregor weighed in with yet another important goal.

Davies gave his opinion to Celtic’s official twitter account .

“We are disappointed we lost the game but performance level was good.

“It gives us confidence that we can play at that level… It’s a sign of progression to qualify and finish third than to qualify and finish last… there’s still a long way to go.”

Celtic are currently favourites to finish third in the group and qualify for the last sixteen, as they hold a three point advantage over the Belgian Champions.

Davies also praised Kieran Tierney, who signed a new six year contract this week, describing him as “a fantastic young player.”

There was also a mention of Celtic’s upcoming clash with St Johnstone, with Davies calling the Perth side “very competitive and organised…you expect a tough game.”

If Celtic avoid defeat on Saturday they will set a new unbeaten domestic record of 63 games.
