“We just keep getting good results and that’s the most important thing at this time of the season. Hamilton are a team that will try and frustrate you.
“They have come here to Parkhead on a number of occasions and made it
difficult and taken points off us, home and away, in the last couple of seasons.
“So, we always knew we were going to be in for a tough game and I’m just glad we got all three points. It was the ugly side of how we play. It wasn’t pretty.
“But the fans realise that at this time of the season there are so many games and three points is the most important thing.”
While Hamilton left with no points, there were plenty of positives from their performance.
“You need to concentrate for 90 minutes and I thought, if we could stay in the game, we could make the last 10 minutes uncomfortable for Celtic.
“We could have given ourselves a chance of taking something from the game.
“We were unfortunate at the end when we put them under a bit of pressure and had a couple of wee half opportunities when we could have nicked something from the game.
“It’s a difficult place to come and it would have been nice to get something.
“You won’t come to a more intimidating place in Scotland than Parkhead and to be able to perform when you are here is a big thing for young players.”
