Celtic interim boss John Kennedy has insisted that his side remains the best squad in the country, despite the setbacks this season which resulted in Glasgow Derby rivals Rangers winning the league.
As quoted by the Daily Record, speaking after yesterdays 6-0 win over Livingston, Kennedy still believes that the side he is in temporary charge of remains the best in the country at this stage as the Hoops look to bounce back from a disappointing campaign.
“I have full belief in the squad we have here, that on our day we are still the best team in the country. One hundred-per-cent. That’s the reaction you have to have. There was always going to come a point where we had a setback.
“It was a big one for us this season but the best always bounce back. It’s easy to give up and say ‘oh, we’ve had our time’, but I have said it to the players, it is very much about how we respond to that.”
In the past nine years, we have seen incredible dominance along the way, with many of the current squad experiencing some of those best moments such as the quadruple treble.
It does, however, feel as though that squad is coming to an end of its tether, especially after such a poor season this year. So, with that, we will look to bring in new players next season to try and start that process again.
From yesterdays victory, it is clear to see the quality that some of these players have had and it just hasn’t worked out this season. There is no doubt we still have some very talented players who will lead us into the new era going forward.
