Celtic right-back Mikael Lustig has sent a warning to the rest of Scottish football, saying that the Hoops’ fans won’t let the club rest on their laurels.
The Hoops are on the verge of a second successive domestic treble but Lustig claims that the fans will demand that the Bhoys keep on winning trophies.
Lustig believes this is a good thing though, as it stops the players from getting complacent.
“We don’t get tired of winning trophies, especially with the fans we have. They demand a lot of us,” he said, as quoted by The Scottish Sun.
“Last season was unbelievable – we won the Treble and broke records and they still want more.
“That is probably a good thing because as players we can’t ever be satisfied.”
Lustig, who is set to be involved for the Hoops against Aberdeen on Sunday and has been a mainstay this season with 45 appearances, will have a busy summer ahead of him as he is one of the few Hoops players who will be playing at the World Cup.
Football Insider verdict
Lustig is correct about the demands of the Hoops support, who must be one of the most demanding in the whole of the UK. Outsiders won’t understand that the Hoops – and Rangers – need to win every match and even a draw is a crisis. The Hoops are on the verge of a second domestic treble and fans still aren’t happy with the performance of the Hoops team at times, particularly in comparison to last season’s unbeaten season. The demand to qualify for the Champions League is also a huge burden for the players, and the Hoops must be one of the few teams whose biggest games of the season are in July and August. The demands will continue next season though, and every season going forward as the club aims to make their mark in Europe, and continue their domestic dominance in one of the most football mad cities in Great Britain.
