While the Sweden international was disappointed by the result at Easter Road he believes the team have nothing to prove.

And Lustig is confident Celtic will bounce back when they play Motherwell on Wednesday.

Lustig said: "We are a big team in Scotland and of course we want to win every game but if we lose a game, we are still the same players who have done very well this season so far.

"So hopefully we can play a good game against Motherwell, score some goals and get back on track.

"I think we were the better team against Hibs but that's football and if you don't score it is hard to win. The attitude and character we showed was brilliant at times.

"But we are Celtic players and we don't like to lose, we always want to win. We always think we should score goals.

"I think we created some big chances and had some good crosses and as I said before, goals are really important."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
