McDonald backs Celtic teammate Loovens

Australian striker Scott McDonald has backed his Celtic teammate Glen Loovens to remain in the starting line-up.

The Dutchman was surprisingly given a start in defence by Gordon Strachan in the Hoops Scottish Cup final win over Rangers and produced a superb performance and McDonald believes he can re-produce that fantastic form.

"I think it was his best game to date thus far," said McDonald.

"He was a demon in the air yesterday I've got to say.

"He won everything and we saw how good a defender he is yesterday, but of course its always going to be difficult for a manager to drop players who have played so well.

"So, I'm just glad it's not me having to make those decisions."
