Nir Bitton answered questions from the Celtic support on the club’s Instagram page on Thursday afternoon. One standout question that he was asked was about his best moment at the club.
His answer was certainly interesting, and perhaps gives us an insight into the mindset of Celtic’s squad.
“I’d say winning the treble treble. Nobody believed we could do it and everyone waited for us to fail, but we went all the way! A great achievement” was Bitton’s answer.
That might well have been in the back of the Celtic player’s minds last season. People might have been expecting the team to fail, especially after Brendan Rodgers exit during the season.
Hoops managed to tough it out
However, the Hoops managed to tough it out, and make football history by winning a third consecutive domestic treble, a feat this is unlikely to be ever repeated.
Proving people wrong might be one of the reasons why the current Celtic side is so successful. It stands to reason that most fans – and probably pundit and players as well – in Scottish football want to see the Hoops’ domination end.
Squad seems determined to keep success going
Well, the players in the last four seasons especially seem more than eager to ensure that isn’t going to happen any time soon.
In fact, when the Hoops return to action after the football lockdown, you imagine that the team will be more determined than ever to add yet more trophies to their collections.
Bitton sounds like he isn’t ready to give up on Celtic’s era of dominance, and his teammates won’t be either.
