Stefan Johansen: 'Celtic look great for Scottish Premiership title win'

Stefan Johansen says that Celtic's Scottish Premiership title chances 'look great' following their 2-0 victory over St Mirren.

Stefan Johansen has said that Celtic's chance of defending their Scottish Premiership title "looks great" following their 2-0 victory over St Mirren on Friday.

The Norwegian midfielder scored from the penalty spot, with the victory taking the Bhoys eight points clear of second-placed Aberdeen.

"It looks great for us now. It's nine games left in the league and it's going to be difficult to take us now," Johansen told The Scotsman.

"This was another important win and we just need to keep focusing now on every game over the next couple of weeks. I don't think we're unbeatable but you can say there is a huge confidence in the team now.

"I think we are starting to look fitter and we have much more of the ball because we are playing with a higher tempo and that's the way the manager wants us to play."

Johansen joined Celtic from Stromsgodset in January 2014 and has scored 11 goals in 48 appearances this season.
