Mulgrew insists Celtic will keep pushing on

Charlie Mulgrew says that Celtic will not go about their job any differently after wrestling top spot back from Old Firm rivals Rangers.

The Hoops hit the front with a 1-0 victory over 'Gers on December 28 and maintained that ascendency by defeating Dunfermline Athletic 3-0 yesterday prompting Mulgrew to suggest that things will remain calm within the Parkhead camp.

"There's no reason to change our approach just because we're now top. We're doing well and it's about approaching each game with a good mental attitude," he told the Daily Record.

"There's no added pressure - we just treat each game as it comes. I don't know if our mentality is any stronger than last season or earlier in this campaign, things just seem to be going our way at the moment. Long may that continue.

"Every match at Celtic is pressure - the fans expect you to win no matter where you are in the league so I don't see it as any different. There isn't much we are doing differently now.

"We are just getting over the line and winning games and maybe we have a bit more belief in ourselves.

"Maybe it took a couple of games to get that belief but nothing has been won yet and we have to keep grinding away."
