We don't get carried away, says Robertson


By Colette Carr

Focus was the buzzword for Lisa Robertson as Celtic enter the final three games of the season on the back of a tremendous ten game unbeaten stretch.

The experienced midfielder knows the Celts can take confidence from the momentum, but also knows they are in the position they are because of their finely tuned ‘one game at a time’ mentality.

Ahead of Hibs this evening, Robertson echoed those sentiments, and warned of the tricky threats her previous club pose.

“It obviously carries huge momentum being ten games unbeaten but we obviously don’t take anything for granted because we know this will be a difficult game and there will be different challenges than what we’ve had previously. We’ll go in with confidence but we stay focused,” she began.

“We don’t get carried away, and that’s how we’ve managed to be in this position by taking it one game at a time and that’s what we’ll do over the next three. It’s hugely important that we prepare properly for the game against Hibs or we won’t get what we want out of it, so everyone’s focused and preparations have been really good.

“Hibs have good qualities but they also have that physical aspect to their game so we know we’re in for a tough one. Playing on a grass pitch is obviously different so that’ll add a factor, but we have to stand up to everything put in front of us and make sure we come away with the result,” she told.

And with only a week and a half left to go, Robertson reflected on how clever use of Celtic’s squad depth has helped them through the congested period so far and shared her hopes that they can continue to use it in one big final push.

“We’ve got ourselves in this position because we’ve got great quality throughout the squad and we’ve been able to use it in a really tough run of fixtures. It’s a quick turnaround consistently so the whole squad is important and that’s been shown because every single player has played its part and the togetherness in this squad has kept us through the times when people are leggy, or carrying a niggle or things are getting tough, but because we have that togetherness and we all believe in each other, we’re in a good position.

“Until the end of the season we need to make sure we take everything from the start of the season way back in January 2020 and makes sure that goes into the last week and we get what we want out of the season,” Robertson added.
