RONNY DEILA thinks Celtic can be their own biggest opponents at Hampden tomorrow afternoon.
And the Hoops boss has urged his players to keep their mind “on the right things” as they prepare to take on Inverness Caley Thistle in the Scottish Cup semi-final.
Asked about the possibility of the domestic Treble, the Norwegian said: “We will see, but I really believe that we can do it and now it is up to us. If we are performing well, we know that we are very hard to beat.

“We have shown that for a long, long time now and again, our biggest opponent is ourselves. We need to keep our mind on the right things.

“I have felt a sense of excitement for a long time. But it is very important to focus on the next training session and next game, instead of thinking of what might be, thinking of what we have to do to make it as good as possible now.”

Deila hopes that treble success will help to attract players to the club this summer and go some way to convincing those unsure of their Parkhead future to stay with the club.

He added: “The players are happy, they enjoy being in Glasgow and at Celtic and if they see the team is going forward they want to stay, that is my experience.

“It’s my job to make the staff and players feel well and have fun and looking forward to coming to work.”

If Celtic can take care of Inverness tomorrow then Falkirk await them in the Final on 30th May after the Bairns performed a snatch and grab on Hibs this afternoon in the other semi-final.
