Mulgrew in mood to keep on winning

Have your say

Celtic defender Charlie Mulgrew hopes their recent habit of emerging from tricky situations can kick-start a winning run while answering questions about the team’s mentality, starting with their Scottish Communities Cup quarter-final tomorrow against Hibs.

Mulgrew kept Celtic ten points behind SPL leaders Rangers for the second successive week when he netted a 72nd-minute winner against Aberdeen on Sunday. Stand-in captain Mulgrew also scrambled a late equaliser at Rugby Park the previous weekend to complete Celtic’s comeback from a three-goal half-time deficit.

In between, Celtic secured a much-needed Europa League point when Joe Ledley headed an equaliser 20 minutes from time against Rennes, after a bizarre own goal from Cha Du-Ri had gifted their French hosts the lead.

Mulgrew said: “It gives you more belief to come back when the chips are down a wee bit. Maybe that’s a question that has been asked of us this year.

“It was good to come back and win.”
