Charlie Mulgrew: Has focus on domestic double

Neil Lennon's team could retain the title this weekend with a victory over Hibernian, should Motherwell slip up against St Mirren.

Regardless of Saturday's results, Celtic require six points at most to be crowned Scottish champions for the 44th time.

And, with a Scottish Cup semi-final against Dundee United on the horizon, Mulgrew believes those given the nod against Hibs could also be playing for their place at Hampden.

Mulgrew said: "At a club like Celtic, there is always pressure and everybody is fighting to get into the team every week, especially when there's a semi-final coming up.

"I'm sure everybody will want to be involved with that game.

"Our focus will be on trying to win on Saturday. It's been a successful campaign for us so far.

"We've had a good run in the Champions League and we're clear at the top of the SPL by quite a few points.

"There is still a lot to be done before we win the league. We'll just need to wait and see what happens on Saturday."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
