South Korea international Cha enjoying Celtic challenge

Cha Du-ri insists he is enjoying the pressure of having to win every game Celtic steps out for.

The South Korea international is well aware of the current situation the Glasgow giants find themselves as they are 12 points behind title rivals Rangers and still looking to progress to the next stage of the Europa League.

Last week the Hoops were in desperate need of victories against French club Stade Rennes in Europe and Motherwell domestically and they came through with the good which has pleased Cha to no end.

"Last week we were met with a very difficult situation for the team and the coach," he told the Daily Record.

"It was said that we simply had to win the next two games and there was a lot of pressure on us.

"And we had so many injuries, we struggled to get enough players to get a team out.

"It was probably the most challenging situation I have seen since I joined Celtic.

"So to win both the games was very important.

"Sometimes you learn more about a team and players when you are in positions such as this and we showed a lot of courage to win the two matches.

"We have bounced back and showed character to do that."
