Celtic’s McDonald: I don’t deserve all the credit

Celtic striker Scott McDonald says he shouldn’t be given all the credit for getting the Hoops back on top of the Scottish Premier League table.

Celtic striker Scott McDonald says he shouldn’t be given all the credit for getting the Hoops back on top of the Scottish Premier League table.

McDonald scored two goals in the midweek win over Kilmarnock to send Celtic back to the top but is refusing to take the credit.

“We are all in it together,” he said.

“There have been times when I have been guilty of missing chances as well.

“I missed a good chance against Rangers early on in the last Old Firm game.

“You are never happy with criticism, that's human nature but you take it, get on with it, work hard and try and put it right.

“That's what we have been trying to do albeit when we scored seven goals at the weekend and I wasn't a happy chappy coming off having not scored.

“That is because we are judged on goals; it is as simple as that.

“Don't get me wrong, I was delighted with the team against St Mirren and the fans were waiting on that for a long time.

“They got another win against Kilmarnock so things are looking up in that respect.

“However, we don't care if we win ugly, as long as we get three points at the end of each game."
