Wright targeting end of Celtic's unbeaten sequence

Celtic's formidable unbeaten streak can strike terror in their opposition, but it also provides the perfect motivational tool for SPFL Premiership gurus looking to inspire their players to a famous victory.

Tommy Wright is the latest manager hoping to put an end to Celtic's successful run, although he insists the club are good enough to make it through to the end of the season without suffering a single defeat.

"Celtic are the champions and the best team in the country," said Wright. "They are still unbeaten but that is a motivation for everybody to try and get that first win against them. They are capable of going the season unbeaten with the quality of players that they have and the depth of squad available to them. On top of that they have a lot of young players coming through so they are more than capable of clocking up an achievement like that.

"They have been tremendous this season with some of the quality of their performances, particularly on the road, so we need to make sure we are on top of our game. We've been given a few warnings this season of just what they can do. They went to Motherwell and won heavily, so they can destroy teams and we need to be wary of that."

Celtic may have been all-conquering this term but they twice tried and failed to beat St Johnstone in Perth last year. Scant hope, perhaps, but one which Wright will willingly cling to.
