Celtic boss Ronny Deila has revealed that he has faced no problems in motivating his players post the international break as they can now see the finishing line in the season.

The Hoops have just three Premiership matches left in the season, along with the Scottish Cup semi-final they are scheduled to play against their rivals Rangers later this month.

And with the lead at the top of the table now standing at four points, with a game in hand, the road to their fifth consecutive league title looks smooth.

Deila, who is very well aware of the kind of importance the remaining league matches have, insists that his team are ready and motivated and will need no extra motivation.

"We have three important games now and have everything in our hands", Deila said at his pre-match press conference.


"It’s no problem to get motivated and we can see the finish line now."

Referring to their domestic form this season, where they have lost just three while winning 21, Deila added that if they can continue with those statistics there is no reason why they won't be crowned winners at the end of the season. 

"We’ve only lost three games in the league all season and if we continue with those stats we’ll win the league."
