On The Gaffer Tapes with Mike Calvin podcast , he said: “It wasn’t just a get up and go. It probably seemed that because of the situation but the club was in a really good situation.
“We had won seven trophies in a row, we’d created a professional mindset within the squad and within the culture.
“The team were able to go and win the league by nine points and go on and win the next two cup competitions and achieve the Treble treble.
“I was then given the opportunity to come to Leicester, which isn’t as big a club as Celtic of course but the challenge and professional challenge of taking a club into the top six was going to be a huge challenge for us.
“And that is something at every club I have gone into I have always wanted”. He concluded.
