Ronny Deila welcomed the international break after Celtic’s 3-0 win over Dundee United.
Since returning from their winter break in Gran Canaria the hoops have been battling in four competitions with one trophy claimed but the Europa League campaign coming to a halt in Milan.
Three wins over Dundee United have set up the final stage of the season with the mentality of the Celtic squad transformed over the last six months.
In September Deila’s squad went into an international break on the back of a 1-0 defeat from Hamilton Accies but as he drew breath yesterday the hoops boss was satisfied by the progress his squad have made.
“It is different from what we were talking about in September and October so we are going the right way,” Deila stated.
“It is important to see what kind of effect three games in six days has on teams. We do that all the time and it is very hard to do.
“You saw that Dundee United were tired. We had more energy and we could switch the squad as well.
“It is important now to get some rest then get back to training and keep the up so that we can hopefully win the treble. If we can do it then it will be a big achievement.
“We are in a good place. There is still a lot to fight for and many games to play but everything is in our hands.”
Between April 3 and 22 Celtic will play St Mirren, Partick Thistle, Inverness Caley Thistle, Kilmarnock, Inverness Caley Thistle and Dundee.
