McFadden: We’re ready to fight

Friday, February 17, 2017

‘Well assistant James McFadden believes that the Steelmen are ready to go and fight against Celtic tomorrow.

After suffering a painful defeat on Wednesday night, McGhee’s number two revealed the players desire to bounce back to action tomorrow.

Speaking to the press this morning, McFadden admitted that the mood was low after Wednesday night, but it was time to look forward.

He said: “We were obviously pretty low yesterday, but we stayed up after the game and we had a cool down.

“Straight after the game I think yesterday was the day to feel down but now we look to the game tomorrow.”

He added: “The biggest thing here is that we lost the game, we were nowhere near it and we never turned up in terms of making it easy for Aberdeen.

Everybody expects Celtic to roll over the top of us but we don’t. We’re going to go there and fight, we’re going to show everybody that we’re up for it and we want to go and be the team that stops the run that Celtic are on.

“We’re bitterly disappointed with the result and the performance moreso. It was a hard one to take.”

With Celtic up next, the assistant manager revealed the teams desire to put an end to the fantastic run they are currently on.

He said: “We’ve done well against Celtic this season, albeit we’ve lost but especially the last home game we felt we did well, we came up with a game plan that almost worked.

“Everybody expects Celtic to roll over the top of us but we don’t. We’re going to go there and fight, we’re going to show everybody that we’re up for it and we want to go and be the team that stops the run that Celtic are on.”
