Celtic captain Scott Brown has warned against complacency as their busy December schedule continues with the visit of Hamilton tomorrow night.

The Glasgow giants are in fine form in the league having won thirteen of their fourteen matches and remain unbeaten domestically. 

Speaking to the club's official website ahead of the match, Brown said: “Because we’ve been playing so well recently, you can just easily fall into that. We don’t want to do that, we want to keep improving.

“The gaffer is huge on us learning and taking it to a new level. The way we’ve been training and performing in games then it’s been shown so far. This run of games is going to be hard but we need to maintain that form we’ve been hitting so far.

“We’re enjoying it, we’ve not had a lot of days training but we are enjoying all the games. We’ve not really had a December schedule as busy as this in a long time but I think everyone’s enjoying it. A few chops and changes all the way through December and it’s going to be interesting,” he added.

Celtic finish the month with a trip to Old Firm rivals Rangers on the 31st December.
