Efe Ambrose’s manager building on momentum

04 December 2014, 14:35

GLASGOW – Efe Ambrose’s manager Ronny Deila wants Celtic to build on their winning momentum after watching his side move clear from the chasing pack for the first time this season.

The Hoops opened a three point gap over Inverness Caledonian Thistle after their 1-0 win over Partick Thistle at Celtic Park on Wednesday night.

After a slow start to their campaign Deila's side have now won six consecutive league matches and the Hoops boss wants that run to continue as he aims to lead the Glasgow giants to the title in his first season in charge.

"That is the goal - we want to keep on winning now," the Norwegian manager said.

"We've played better but I'm happy with the three points. I think we were dominant for almost the full game and we deserved to win.

"I try to be positive and we've also played a lot of matches now with just three days between them and that of course is effecting the energy in the team.

"But they fought for the victory and got the three points and I'm happy with that. We are on a good run and we have momentum and confidence.

"We want to continue on Saturday against Motherwell and get the three points."

Virgil van Dijk was the hero for Celtic once again as he scored the only goal in the narrow win over Thistle.

The Dutch defender, who grabbed a double in his side's Scottish Cup win over Hearts on Sunday, pounced at the second attempt to fire Celtic in front in the 60th minute.
