To win championship you have to be big enough to own up to, and learn from, your mistakes
Daniel Majstorovic has been big enough to accept "all the responsibility" for the lack of three points being added to the total for the season on Saturday. Leading 2-0, Celtic allowed Inverness to come back with a brace of their own to ensure their fantastic away record made it to the full year. That is two weeks on the go that points were dropped from winning positions. This time around fans left the ground pointing the finger of blame at Majstorovic for his part in both Inverness goals. The Sweden defender, while accepting culpability for a result, insists all is not lost. He said: "As a defender I really hated it and felt really bad that we dropped points and I take all the responsibility for this. But we just need to keep on going. We are two points behind Rangers and still have everything in our hands, so we just need to learn from this and keep on going."
The big man acknowledged that Celtic are now entering a crucial part of the season, following the two draws against Dundee United and Inverness. The five games in the run up to the New Year, starting with a visit to Aberdeen on Saturday, must be won to keep the pressure on Ranger, who they will meet on 2 January. Majstorovic said: "It's very important. All the games that are coming up now until Christmas are vital for us. We do have the quality and a good team spirit. All the teams who play against us always raise their game so we just need to be focused and mentally prepared for what's coming up."
