Ross County manager John Hughes believes that Celtic have their ‘mojo back’ after going on a run of five wins in a row.
As quoted by the Express, Hughes had some high praise for Neil Lennon’s side about the football they had played at times in the last few weeks with one man, in particular, playing a key part in Scott Brown.
“They have got their mojo back after the sticky period they had.
“They play some great football. I was waxing lyrical about Rangers and their performance against us at Ibrox and yet when you look at Celtic, albeit Rangers beat them, in the Old Firm game Celtic were the better football team.
“So we know the strength of the opponent and they seem to have got that hunger back. You want to test yourself against the best as a player so it has to inspire you and you have to look forward to it.
“They have got some fantastic footballers, and I just keep laughing at all the speculation about Scott Brown.
“He was playing there against St Johnstone and he was the playmaker. He was orchestrating the band and just keeping it ticking over, making it simple. So we know what we are up against – a team I have so much respect for.
“We will need to be at our maximum, every one of our players will need to be at our best, full-out, to beat Celtic. It’s up to us to come up with a game plan, really try to stifle Celtic, but also try and take the game to them and let them know they have been in a game.”
In the last month or so we have been able to build up several wins and try to build some momentum.
At times some of the football being played hasn’t been at its best but on the other hand, there have also been spells in games where we have played some top stuff.
That’s probably what frustrates supporters most. We all know how capable this squad of players are and we have seen that in the last few seasons winning trophy after today.
Ultimately, no matter what the winning run it is too little too late when it comes to winning the title. From here you just have to hope the squad can keep up this winning run and close the gap at the top.
