Loovens lauds Celtic boss for finding right team balance

Celtic defender Glenn Loovens believes Tony Mowbray has found the "right balance". An unchanged Celtic clinched a fourth consecutive victory for the first time under Mowbray when they beat Motherwell 3-2 at Fir Park on Saturday.

The Hoops chief used 27 players in his first three months in charge and made an average of three changes per game during a difficult 10-match spell - which immediately preceded their winning run - when Celtic won just twice.

"That's four wins in a row and four good performances so the team also looks to have settled now," the Holland international told the Celtic View.

"There aren't as many changes as there were earlier in the season. We've found the right balance and it seems to be working.

"It's understandable that the manager made changes when he came in.

"He was new to the job. That was the first time he had met and worked with most of the lads and he needed to find the right team and the right balance.

"But now I think he has found what he's looking for. We are playing well and hopefully we can keep winning."
