Celtic aren't motivated by making history - we are driven by

The champions could make it a record 63 domestic games unbeaten against St Johnstone today.

Chris Davies insists Celtic are not being driven by the desire to make history - but the determination to stay top dogs in the present.

The Parkhead side can set a new British record of 63 domestic games unbeaten at St Johnstone today - and break the previous best achieved by the club under Willie Maley a century ago,

Assistant boss Davies admitted continuing the run would be a huge achievement - but the Hoops' SBOBET main priority is remaining clear at the Premiership summit.

Brendan Rodgers’s side sit one point above second-place Aberdeen and the assistant boss wants no slip ups at McDiarmid Park this lunchtime.

He said: “We’ve got to make sure we stay at the top of the league. That’s our motivation. To make sure we stay on top.

When it comes to the record, I think everyone was privately aware it was happening.

“But we don’t talk about that. We’ve had other objectives to be honest in terms of getting to the League Cup Final, making sure we’re top of the league and dominating. Europe’s different.

“It won’t be something that’s our single motivation for this game. What’s got us to this point is ‘win the next game – focus on that’. And giving everything and doing your best.

“Hopefully the record is the consequence. That will be our mentality, no doubt about that.

“We’re going to a team which has been in the top-six for a few years and are still in the top-six now and it’s away from home. It’s always going to be a difficult game.”

St Johnstone were the last Scottish side to beat Celts - back in April 2016 under former boss Ronny Deila after the title had been sewn up.

Davies admitted he has had Willie Maley’s record in his sights for months but the Hoops are not going to stop at 63.

He said: “It would be us stepping past the previous one that we’re now joint with.

“To be honest, we won’t talk about it before the game. SBOBET We haven’t spoken about it at all.

“I was aware of it when we equalled the Lisbon Lions one in February. Around 40 odd, I was thinking ‘why is no one talking about this?’

“We were still totting them up. It was good that it was a silent thing but I was aware that it kept on progressing.

“But because we don’t talk about it, it’s hopefully just going to be a consequence of how we prepare.”

Celtic emerged with credit following their narrow defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League in midweek but Davies admitted the Hoops will need a different game plan to deal with the Perth Saints.

He said: “A lot of it is similar principles. One thing we weren’t doing against Bayern was low press and that was a tactical decision.

“We could have sat in and just counter-attacked. But we actually looked to build the game and in the right moment, move up.

“All our
SBOBET principles of our play was there. We will need to find a solution on Saturday because maybe our opponent will not be as dominant on the ball as Bayern were.”
