'England is taking notice' - Senior Celtic man reacts to record run
By John Reid
Celtic assistant manager Chris Davies has suggested that Celtic’s players haven’t been thinking about the prospect of setting a record run of unbeaten games.
If the Hoops avoid defeat against St Johnstone on Saturday, they will break the record of 62 games unbeaten, originally set by Willie Maley’s Celtic team 100 years ago.
“The record is not something we sit and worry about.” Davies told the BBC Sport website.
“When you’re doing it you don’t think about it. It’s just been a consequence of the great work for the players and the manager leading everyone forward.”
Davies has remarked that the run is making waves in England

“I do speak to people…and everybody recognises how difficult it is.”
Celtic will be aiming to bounce back from their narrow defeat to Bayern Munich at Celtic Park on Tuesday night.
The likes of Kieran Tierney, Callum McGregor and James Forrest all impressed against the Bundesliga Champions and will be expected to start at McDairmid Park on Saturday.
Celtic are currently one point ahead at the top of the Scottish Premiership, and with Aberdeen hot on their heels the Bhoys will be looking for the win not only to break the record but to stay at the top of the league going into the international break.
