Majstorovic has high hopes

Celtic defender Daniel Majstorovic is confident his debut season at Parkhead is going to be a success.

Celtic have yet to concede a goal following the first four matches of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League campaign.

Sweden defender Majstorovic has kept seven clean sheets in eight games for club and country this season, although the one black mark was a 4-0 Europa League defeat by Utrecht.

But the 33-year-old is optimistic about good times ahead at Celtic Park.

"I feel very good," the centre-back told the Celtic View. "Of course, it's always easier when you win and play well.

"But step by step I am getting to where I want to be so I am quite confident that this year will be a good year for the whole team and club.

"We have a lot of good, quality players. We just need to settle them in together.

"We have a lot of new players in the squad and it just takes time to come to the right point.

"We are in a good way now and I think it will get even better."

The summer signing from AEK Athens added: "You can always learn and take steps but the most important thing is to keep your mentality and concentrate and if we play like we're doing now, that's very good.

"I am a winner and want to win titles. Our aim is to win the league first of all and then to win the cups. That's our target and we aim to fulfil it."

Meanwhile, Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell was in India today to announce a scheme to send out coaches to nurture and identify talent during a school football tournament.
