Celtic assistant manager Johan Mjallby expects their forthcoming Champions League last-sixteen tie to help them keep hold of their leading players in January.

"This should be a great incentive for them to stay here at Celtic" - Johan Mjallby
Strikers Gary Hooper and Georgios Samaras, together with Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama, have all been linked with possible moves elsewhere in recent times.

But Mjallby reckons the continuing lure of involvement in Europe's top club competition should prove too strong for them to resist.

"This should be a great incentive for them to stay here at Celtic and take us forward," he told Sky Sports. "You never know where it's going to take us.

"If we hadn't gone through and done as well as we have I think maybe some of the players who have done exceptionally well for us would maybe be interested to have another challenge."

Celtic 4 Aberdeen 1

Celtic surged to the top of the Scottish Premiership with a 4-1 victory against Aberdeen at Celtic Park.

Leigh Griffiths' early opener was soon cancelled out by Adam Rooney, but James Forrest restored the home advantage ahead of the break.

However, the champions were forced to wait until the closing stages when Scott Sinclair converted an 87th minute penalty after Mark Reynolds was sent-off.

Midfielder Tom Rogic then curled a delightful free-kick in the final minute.
