Parker defiant as Celtic get set to navigate tricky course

Celtic coach Garry Parker says he will not let the upcoming cluttered schedule get into the minds of his and Neil Lennon's players as they strive to regain top spot on the Scottish table.

The Hoops tonight embark on a tough fixture list of four games in eight days beginning with Hibernian at Celtic Park.

Last night, title rivals Rangers took top position with their win at St Johnstone and now Parker and Lennon will instruct their men to simply get on with the job.

"If that's what we've got to do, we'll get on with it," he said.

"We've got a big enough squad to cope. We have players who can come in and do a job.

"I've never been in this position where we're facing so many games in such a short space of time. But you can't moan and grump about it.

"If that's what they're going to make us do we need to get on with it."
