Everything David Turnbull said during his pre-match press conference ahead of Celtic's trip to Dingwall to face Ross County...

Quite a start to the season with that victory, and the manager saying you could have scored even more goals, how are you all feeling?

We are all feeling great. It is the first game of the season and we know how the game went, we got the result we needed and probably could have scored a few more goals.

There was quite a familiar look to the team, but how are the new players settling in?

They've all settled in great, they have all added great quality, and everybody's together. They have fitted in well, and no one is out of place. It is just good to have them here.

I just wondered if playing Ross County away is a different animal to playing other clubs of their like, playing in Dingwall?

It's different. Starting with the journey, they are the furthest away team, so you go up there and know what you are going to face. It will be physical, they will provide a tough test for us, and it is a smaller, compact ground. They will try to stamp their authority on the game, so we know it will be a tough test.

For yourself, David, do you just keep pushing to try and get more game time?

Yeah, it's just about training every day and giving it my all. When I get the chance in a game, it is about me showing what I can do on the pitch. Whether it is from the bench or starting, it is about me giving 100 per cent every time.

Last season was obviously disrupted by injury around about Christmas. Do you have targets in terms of goals and assists this season, or is it all about playing games and getting more minutes?

I would say I have more targets in terms of what I want to do. Last season, despite my injury, I played a lot of games. They came thick and fast. I just want to play as many games as I can, and hopefully, my body keeps up. Last season there was disappointment, but now I am feeling fit and ready to go.

Could you let us know these targets, perhaps 10 league goals?

Ten league goals would be nice, let's say that.

I think some of us were surprised about how critical Ange was after the game at the weekend. It was a comprehensive win, but he said the players were wasteful at times. Is that just an indication of the high standards he has?

It just shows you what the manager is looking for from the boys. We know we put in a good performance, but there were small amounts when we could have been better. We were slack in possession or gave the ball away. It is just about fixing that. It is not that we played bad, but we know what we need to do and will try and work on that every game.

The trip to Dingwall last December saw Anthony Ralston score that last-minute winner. How much did that moment typify Celtic's fighting spirit last season?

Yeah, it did. It showed our never say die attitude as we were pushing the full game. Ross County sat behind the ball for the last 10 minutes, which made it hard for us to break them down. It was just about going until the very end of the game, and we kept playing our own football. It was just about believing in it, and it worked in the end. 

I'm sure you have seen in the last couple of weeks other Scottish teams playing in European qualifiers. Does that whet your appetite for what is to come in the Champions League?

It is good to see how other teams get on, and look forward to later on in the season when we have the Champions League. We know how big the competition is and how great the games will be at Celtic Park. It will be a great challenge, and I am really looking forward to it.

When the draw comes out will you be looking for glamour ties or teams Celtic have more of a chance of getting through against?

I think anyone would tell you that they would like a glamour tie, but we believe that we can go anywhere and play our football, so it will be exciting to see who we get.

You've had a year working under the manager. Do you think you have improved as a player, and is there more to come from you this season?

I'm wanting to improve every season, and I feel like I did that last year. He has brought in this style of football, and it has been great to work under him. I think everyone is enjoying it. It will be good to see how the season goes.

The game up in Dingwall was a significant one as you had to win that day to stay ahead. The away support were magnificent that day. How important will they be tomorrow?

We know how important it is for them. It is all about us going out there to play well and make sure they are happy.

With there being no qualifiers to navigate, what has the preparation been like?

It has been a bit strange, but it has given us a bit more time to do things on the training pitch. We have played a few more pre-season games than usual as well. It is all about us getting fitness. It has been different but also good.

In the midfield we have some excellent players in McGregor, Hatate and O'Riley. How do you motivate and work with each other in training?

It is just about pushing each other. We are all great players, and it is great to work with them. We support each other, and we know not every one of us can play each game, so it is about helping each other. It is just about when you get the chance. Make sure you go out there and take it. You just need to try and stamp your own quality on the game and, in training work as hard as you can.

With Tom Rogic leaving in the summer do you see this as an opportunity to get more regular game time?

At the start of last season most of the games I played were with Tom and it was great to play alongside him. Him leaving opens up spaces for other boys. Whatever position I play I would like to nail down. That is just up to me if I perform well and do what I need to do.

Heading into Ross County does that run of 33 league games unbeaten come into your thinking at all?

Probably not. It is just about taking each game as it comes. Last week we had the opening game of the season and had a great result. This week is a completely different challenge and all about going there to try and get all three points.
