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 have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
