Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic are four points ahead of second-placed Aberdeen with a game in hand and boss Ronny Deila is looking to push home the advantage before the split - starting with today's game against Hearts.

After today, Celtic visit Dundee on Tuesday before facing Motherwell at Fir Park.

The former Stromsgodset boss said: "We can see the finishing line so it is going to be a good game tomorrow. We need to keep on winning football games.

"I think that they (Aberdeen) will win every game and we will have to do the same. We have been very consistent and we have to keep on the same way."

Deila was glad to see Danish defender Erik Sviatchenko return to training following the crunching tackle on him by fellow substitute Liam Bridcutt during the game against Scotland.

The Hoops boss said: "I was a little bit concerned because it was a rough tackle but he is good. He is back in training today. It was good he got through."

Striker Carlton Cole injured a knee in training and he will have a scan to ascertain the extent of the damage.
