JOHN KENNEDY admitted the last two seasons have been the pinnacle of his Celtic coaching career.

The 34-year-old former Hoops and Scotland international centre-half has played his part in the astonishing double treble – and he revealed he is ready to go again.

Kennedy, whose career was cruelly cut short by injury, said: “It’s still hard to believe what we’ve achieved in the last two years, but it’s something we’ll savour going forward. We have to enjoy it while it lasts.

“Before we know it, it’ll be next season again and we’ll put it behind us and move forward again.

“It’s about taking it all in as much as you possibly can, enjoying the moment and the summer break.

“This ranks up there with everything else I’ve achieved in coaching. This is the pinnacle. To be on the run that we have been over the last two seasons is remarkable in itself. This is one we had in our sights. We aim high and if we can get there then brilliant, but to actually achieve it is something else.

“The consistency is down to the mindset of the players. The characters we’ve got in the team are special. They’re relentless and it’s not just every game they go and play, it’s like that in training, too.

“The manager keeps very high standards and the players go and deliver. We have a great group of players and staff. Everyone’s always trying to get the maximum out of each other and that’s led to a lot of success.”
