Scott Brown: This is what Celtic team-mates have to be with people coming after us
Celtic captain Scott Brown wants his team-mates to use their heads and think more as the Hoops head into the second-half of the season with a match against Partick Thistle on Tuesday night.
The Bhoys were criticised by some supporters for their performances towards the end of the winter break, particularly in the goal less Old Firm derby in December.
Despite the criticism, the Hoops still have a healthy lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table and Brown wants them to take confidence from that.
“Everyone will be fresh and it should be a good game” he said, as quoted by Sky Sports.
“People are coming after us a little bit more than probably they were last season, so we’ve got to be a little bit wiser as well.”
Brown’s comments make sense as already the Hoops have dropped more points in the league this season than they did in the entirety of last season.
The Bhoys’ unbeaten run of 69 domestic matches mat have came to an end in the 4-0 loss to Hearts at Tynecastle in December, but they still hold an eight point lead over Aberdeen at the top of the league.
The meeting against Partick is the third between the teams so far this season, with the Hoops looking to make it three wins out of three.
An Olivier Ntcham goal was enough to secure the points in a 1-0 win at Firhill in August, whilst goals from Stuart Armstrong and Kieran Tierney won the day in a 2-0 win at Celtic Park in December.
