Celtic assistant manager Chris Davies has revealed that the key to the current side’s unprecedented run of success is their ability to adapt to different playing styles.
The Hoops won the domestic treble for the second season in a row following a 2-0 Scottish Cup Final win over Motherwell, and Davies feels that the players deserve all the credit for the triumph.
“We always play different systems and different ways. The players are adept at changing and being flexible, and last Saturday was another great example of that – how we set up, and the players performed very well” he said, as quoted on the Hoops’ official website.
“I’m very privileged to be working with this group of players who are so talented yet so humble and so hard-working and honest.”
The Hoops will not have much time to celebrate their impressive achievements on the domestic stage, as they are back in action in July, to begin the process of trying to qualify for the Champions League group stages for the third season in a row.
Football Insider verdict
Davies can praise the players all he wants, but he must know that he job done by himself and Brendan Rodgers has been amazing. The duo, and the rest of the staff at Parkhead, have transformed a club in only two short years. It is hard to fathom how so many of the players who have won back to back domestic trebles were part of the side which lost to Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-final in 2016. Sure, the Hoops have made some signings in that time, but not that many. The players have done an incredible job, but really, Davies and Rodgers are the architects of this incredible run of success that the Hoops are on. They won’t want the players to rest on their laurels either. The duo will demand that the team keeps up its’ run of results, as it is what is demanded of Celtic. Too many individuals in the past didn’t understand that, thankfully Davies and Rodgers do.
