Larsen takes charge with the club in 10th position, sitting
on 17 points from 15 games. Having been reportedly given the mandate of a
top-four finish, Larsen has plenty of work ahead of him.
Key to his mission will be to reinstall confidence and
self-belief in the squad, and to make sure everyone is on the same page.
"In football, results are paramount, the job of a coach

"We must be unified not only to win but conquer, the
Celtic brand has grown hugely and that needs to be complimented by great
"Fighting for each other and instilling self-esteem
unto us will be imperative, starting from Wednesday against Black Aces we must
be lethal and determined to win.
"There is no doubt in my mind that the squad we are
having is a nice blend of youngsters and experienced campaigners. Together we
can make it," he added.
