Midfielder Danny Redmond spoke to web reporter Mark Gillespie after Sunday’s game against Celtic….
Our task against the champions elect became even tougher after we went down to 10 men just before half time. Apart from two lapses of concentration at the start of each half, Accies were always in the game. Danny Redmond draws positives from the performance and Accies’ league prospects with one more game to go ahead of the split.
“I didn’t see Darren Lyon’s sending off as I was marking my man at the set piece. I just heard the Celtic crowd go. Everyone’s saying it was a bit harsh.”, he said.
“When you’re playing Celtic you need all your men on the pitch. But I still thought we were well in it, and even had chances after Darren went off. It’s a credit to lads’ togetherness that we kept at it and performed well. ”
“When you play Celtic the pressure’s always on them to come and defeat you. We still thought we had a chance coming into it, as they haven’t been firing on all cylinders. We’re disappointed at another defeat, but we’ve got to get ourselves together, and get a good week’s training in ahead of the Kilmarnock game.”
“It’s just disappointing to concede so early in each half. It’s a crazy game, and we have to be 100% switched on at all times. It’s something we’ll continue to work on this week.”
“We’re still positive. We’ve got to be. We’re five points clear of trouble ahead of a big game on Saturday. A win could get us eight points clear. All our focus now is on the Kilmarnock game.”
