    Chris Davies: Our only focus is on getting three points against St Johnstone

  • CELTIC will go into Saturday’s game against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park looking to win the game, not in order to set any records, but just because that has been the focus for every single match under Brendan Rodgers.

    All talk of making history will be confined to the supporters. Inside the Celtic dressing-room, it’s just about getting another three points in order to ensure the team go into the international break on top of the Premiership table.

    That’s not to say the squad won’t be proud should they extend their unbeaten domestic record to 63 games and beat the previous record set by Willie Maley’s Celtic side 100 years ago. But as assistant manager Chris Davies explained, the unbeaten run is a result of focusing only on the next game which, in this case, will be a tough St Johnstone side.

    “We’ve never used it as a team talk,” said Davies. “The record isn’t something we think about. It’s been a consequence of the great players and the manager leading everyone forward. We’ve always had the same mentality, and that’s to win the next game.

    “It’s an incredible achievement to have driven the team all the way now to 62 games and we’re proud to have equalled that, but our focus is on the game and consequences of that hopefully are something else.

    “St Johnstone are a competitive team and I watched them against Ross County. They’re not on the best run in terms of results but that doesn’t matter. They are a really competitive and organised team. They are a top-six team. If you go away to a top-six team, you can expect a tough game.”
