Inverness Caledonian Thistle boss John Hughes refuses to get carried away following his side's Scottish Premiership win over champions Celtic on Saturday.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle boss John Hughes has insisted that his target for the season is Scottish Premiership survival, despite defeating champions Celtic today 1-0.

The Cally boss praised his side's display against the Hoops, but said that he will not reassess his ambitions until the threat of relegation has been averted.

"We rode our luck a couple of times in the first half but we created a few chances ourselves. Then we got our goal, maybe too early," he told BBC Sport.

"I like a goal in the 85th minute against Celtic. But we coped well, changed our shape, played on the break and could have nicked another one.

"We want to win as many games as we can as quickly as we can to make sure we stay in the Premiership, then we'll set about reassessing out targets."

Cally are top of the table with 10 points from their four matches played.
