Gary Mackay-Steven has urged Celtic to go on a run and show that they are the best team in the league by winning their remaining Scottish Premiership fixtures.

The Hoops, who are en route to winning their fifth consecutive Scottish Premiership title, currently find themselves four points clear at the top of the league table with a game in hand.

Ronny Deila’s team currently have 69 points from 30 games, and with just eight league fixtures remaining in the season, Mackay-Steven is confident about Celtic claiming the Scottish Premiership title once again.

“Now that the finishing line is in sight, we feel like we want to go on a run and show that we are the best team in the league”, Mackay-Steven told Celtic View.

“There are four points in it just now and if we can just extend that and keep taking care of things ourselves, I’m sure we will go on and win the trophy.”


Celtic will next face third-placed Heart of Midlothian in a home league game at the weekend, the club’s first outing after the international break.

And Mackay-Steven insisted that his side are expecting a tough outing against Robbie Nielson’s team at Celtic Park at the weekend.

“The Hearts match will be a massive game”, he continued.

“They have acquitted themselves really well this season. They have a good manager in Robbie Nielson who has bought well, and they have a strong, big squad who are always dangerous. It won’t be an easy game.

“We drew the last time we played them and it was a little bit frustrating for us, but if we can go and really put the foot on the gas from the start, then we can go and win this time.”

Mackay-Steven has thus far made 34 appearances in all competitions for Celtic this season, scoring five times and providing nine assists.
