CELTIC No.2 Chris Davies has shot down the comical claims by new Sevco Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha that he has inherited the best squad in Scotland.
The Portuguese comedian surprised everyone outside Ibrox with his comments on Monday when he was unveiled as their new manager.
The treble-chasing Hoops enjoy a monumental 33-point advantage over the 5 year old Govan outfit and their record in 35 domestic games this season reads 33 wins and two draws.
The champions have beaten their Comedy Club in three out of four encounters and it would have been a 100 per cent record but for a last-gasp penalty refusal from former Comedy Club season ticket holder Bobby s Madden.
When asked how he felt about Caixinha’s startling assertion, Davies replied: “We have certainly had an incredible season, judging by that comment.
“Everyone can have their own opinion on what they think.
“I think it’s pretty clear for anybody looking at the league, where it’s at.
“But we’re fine, we’re focused on ourselves. We do our talking on the pitch and we take care of business and we’ll always be that way.
“We have no interest in what they are doing. It’s just about us being the best we can be.”
Celtic have had a record-breaking campaign and Brendan Rodgers’ trusted right-hand man believes they can stretch that outstanding form into forthcoming years.
He said: “I don’t see any reason why not. That will be our objective.
“But, at the same time, I think it’s important there is a sensible outlook on it as well and an acknowledgement that the unbeaten run and the winning run, breaking records that have stood for a long time, is something special.
“What is important is what we can control.
“We can sit back in the summer and reflect on what have we done well, what can we do better, how we want to develop and evolve and keep that evolution of the team so you are never predictable, you are always a threat.”
The Hoops will clinch their sixth successive title tomorrow with a win at Dundee if Aberdeen lose to Hearts today.
While the destination of the league flag has been a foregone conclusion for some time, Davies insisted it will be a proud moment when it is eventually achieved – especially for Rodgers.
He added: “Whenever it does come, it is going to be special.
“It is going to be the first league title that the manager has won, so it will be a special day.
“For the fans and everyone, you want them to have that feeling again.”
