'I’m looking forward to that' - Craig Gordon fires warning shots after Celtic criticism
Craig Gordon has disclosed that he wants Celtic to be dominant for the rest of the season whilst also pouring scorn on the suggestion that teams have figured out how to play Brendan Rodgers’ side.
The Hoops dropped more points in the first-half of this season than they did in the entirety of last season, leading some to think the Bhoys and their style of play can be ‘sussed’ with a high press, like Craig Levein’s Hearts did in the 4-0 win over Celtic at Tynecastle in December.
Gordon is having none of it though, as he fired warning shots to any challengers.
“If they think they have us sussed, well I’m looking forward to that,” he said, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“I think it will be a good challenge to come out second half of the season and really push on and be dominant.”
Despite the Bhoys’ indifferent performances in a busy December which saw them play nine games, they are still in a good position heading into the post winter break schedule.
They have an eight point lead over nearest challengers Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership league table, and lead old rivals Rangers by 11 points.
They also have a Europa League last 32 clash with Zenit to look forward to in February.
The Hoops are next in action against Brechin when they begin the defence of the Scottish Cup at Celtic Park on the 20th of January.
In other Celtic news, Gordon was pleased to see Rangers players so upset after his saves in the recent Old Firm derby.
