CAPTAIN Scott Brown believes Celtic can remain undefeated in the league for the rest of the season.

Following the 6-1 Champions League defeat by Barcelona in the Nou Camp, which ended their European aspirations for the season, the Hoops responded with a 1-0 win over Hibernian at Parkhead last Saturday.

It extended their lead at the top to seven points and their unbeaten run in the Scottish Premiership this season to 15 games – winning 12 and drawing three – as they seek to successfully defend their title.

Asked if Celtic could remain undefeated through the entire campaign, the former Hibs midfielder said: “We are a tight group and we are strong, and I think if we put our minds to it we can definitely do it.”

The Bhoys will have to contend with a demanding festive fixture list which sees them host bottom club Hearts this Saturday lunchtime, before taking on St Johnstone, Inverness Caley Thistle and Partick Thistle in the space of six days.

However, the Scotland international told the Celtic official website: “It was a hard game in Barcelona and they have done that to a lot of teams – they have done that to Real Madrid as well – but we are back in our normal league position and going about the job the way we should be.

“A lot of teams have been spending 50-60 million pounds to get to the last 16 and our budget isn’t as big as that. We managed to do it last year [get to last 16] and it shows what a good team we have here.

“We have a run of games coming up, especially over the festive period which will be hard.

“The gaffer will make a few subs here and there, change it up and freshen faces, but the lads enjoy playing week in, week out and two or three games a week.”

Brown, 28, would also welcome any fresh additions to the squad when the transfer window opens on New Years Day.

“I don’t know who we will bring in,” he said. “We will need to leave that up to the manager [Neil Lennon], staff and board, but whoever comes in will be more than welcome.”
