Samaras won’t let up

GEORGIOS Samaras is determined to help keep the Celtic bandwagon rolling when Inverness visit Parkhead tomorrow.

The in-form Greece striker was perhaps the pick of the bunch on Wednesday night as Neil Lennon’s side hammered Hearts 4-0 to go four points clear of Rangers at the top of the SPL, and extend their domestic winning run to 16 games.

Samaras is looking to maintain that form and stay ahead of Rangers in the title run-in. “It’s all about us,” he said. “We’re here because we had a good run and we want to keep it going.

“We’ve won games and turned a lot of things round this season and we don’t want to take our foot off the gas. We now have some difficult games but we believe we have the quality to go on and win the next game.”

The odds on Celtic winning the treble have shortened in recent weeks with Lennon’s side reaching the final of the League Cup, where they will play Kilmarnock at Hampden next month.

Before that, they travel to Dundee United in the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup.

Samaras admits he is enjoying the hectic period of activity as the season gears up for a frantic finale.

“I prefer to have a game every two or three days – like Saturday, Wednesday, Sunday – because for me, I feel I have a better rhythm,” he said.
