Ledley warns of Celtic backlash

Celtic midfielder Joe Ledley is sure the players will react to

the shock 2-1 defeat at St Johnstone in the best possible

manner.

The Bhoys were beaten 2-1 at McDiarmid Park as Rowan Vine curled

home a dramatic winner 10 minutes from time – but Ledley has

shrugged off suggestions complacency has crept in with arch-rivals

Rangers demoted.

Ledley said: “I wouldn’t say that. We just didn’t turn up and it

wasn’t good enough. The manager made it perfectly clear what we

didn’t do but I think everyone knows it.

“We didn’t win the battle and do the ugly stuff to earn the

right to play and we need to start doing that. We got off to a good

start but we didn’t keep it going.

“We are all disappointed and determined to put it right the next

time.

“We need to keep our eye on the SPL, that’s our bread and butter

and I think everyone is focused towards that. Hopefully we will be

back stronger, hopefully in the next match.”
