KIERAN TIERNEY has admitted Celtic will be taking nothing for granted as they chase a sensational back-to-back treble.
The 4-0 trouncing of Rangers yesterday set up a Scottish Cup Final showdown with Motherwell at Hampden on May 19 – and a win would put the Hoops in the history books.
Tierney said: “It’s never been done before and there’s a reason for that. We know it’s going to be hard.
“We’ve still got a few tough games coming up so it’s just one game at a time, as always.
“That’s the aim. We’ve got Hibs next weekend, so we’ll have a couple of days recovery and then be back in training as hard as ever.
“Motherwell are a good team. They always make it difficult for us. They know what they’re good at and they’ve got some good players as well, so we’ll be looking forward to the game.”
Looking back at the champions’ performance against under-pressure Graeme Murty’s outfit, the Scotland left-back said: “It was brilliant. The boys were very clinical and we also kept a clean sheet, which is always a bonus.
“I know what it means to every single Celtic fan out there. I know leading up to game there was a lot of speculation about the pressure and I thought we all dealt with that brilliantly.
“I thought in the first-half we came out the better team. They obviously had a couple of chances and Craigy pulled off some great saves when he was called upon.
“I think we made it more comfortable for ourselves. We battled hard and then we got the ball down and played football.
“That’s what we do best and if we can play our game. Now, hopefully, we can go on and win our remaining games.”
