He said: “Our record for 2020 would stand up to any club in Europe or even the world.

“It’s not the easiest thing to do because teams are set up to stop you scoring or to nullify you in any way they can. So I can’t ask any more of the players.

“During the winter break we told them to hold on to the feeling of disappointment they had of losing the last game.

“The response has been emphatic to the point where we’re 13 points clear at the top of the table and in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup.

“So we’ve been really consistent, and the mindset has been good as well. It’s how I want to see Celtic playing. We’re there to entertain the fans.

"That’s in the club’s DNA so the players have responded in the right way.”
