Former Cardiff City Apprentice Adam Matthews insists that his current Club Celtic can go the rest of the season without losing another game.

The 20-year-old full-back who made the move to Celtic Park in the summer from Wales believes that Neil Lennon’s side can go on and lift a domestic treble.

Having turned around a 15-point deficit to lead the Scottish Premier League, Neil Lennon’s men – already League Cup finalists – are favourites to lift all three pieces of Scottish silverware, despite being handed a tough away draw against Dundee United in the quarter-finals of the William Hill Scottish Cup.

The Celts have racked up 15 straight league and cup wins in a row – and haven’t lost a domestic game since 2 October, when they fell 2-0 to Hearts at Tynecastle.

Celtic return to the scene of that defeat tonight looking to extend their lead and preserve their 4 month unbeaten record at the top of the SPL.

“Yeah, I think it is a realistic target,” said the Welsh international. “We’re still taking it one game at a time. But we’re going into games with confidence, so I’m sure we can keep it going for as long as possible.”

“Being on this run means we go into every game thinking we’re going to win. We don’t fear anyone because we are the form team.”

“Hopefully we can keep that going, first at Hearts, and then further to progress into the semi-finals of the cup.”

“With the players we have, it’s great to look around the changing room and see quality in every position. Then there’s the gaffer and his coaching staff, they fill us with confidence as well.”

“The fact the Manager has been able to change the team around, either through choice or because of injuries and suspensions, shows the strength in depth available to him,” he added.
