Brendan Rodgers and Scott Brown have both said they will press the reset button after the Celtic manager tasted his first defeat in Scotish Football after 18 months.
The 69 unbeaten run has never got the credit it deserves outside of Celtic Park but it will stand the test of time and sit pretty in the history books. Chris Davis faced the media yesterday as Brendan Rodgers and Peter Lawwell allegedly took a round trip to London.
Speaking to the media yesterday Davis said:
“We’ve lost one domestic game in 70. We’ve had a very good season so far, reaching all our objectives. We’ve stayed top, secured European football after Christmas and won a trophy,” he said.
“Our mentality means we don’t need a loss to make us react. We want to be at our very best every game. We’ll give everything we can and hopefully, our reaction will be reflected in the score-line.
“We now look to start a new winning run from Wednesday night. Our focus is always the next game and the consequence of that mantra has been records broken.”
Alan Archibald is fully aware of a backlash from Celtic this evening at Celtic Park, he is taking some hope from the Hearts display at Tynecastle.
“It could be the wrong time to face them,” he said. “Everyone is aware there’s normally a backlash after a disappointing result. It gives you hope the way that Hearts played against them and the amount of opportunities they created.
Celtic fans are calling for changes after Sunday, especially at the back. Celtic defender Jozo Simunovic is a doubt after he picked up a knock on Sunday. We will have the team news as soon as it released.
