Healy: I want invincible Blues to be Celtic of the Irish League


By Graham Luney

David Healy has challenged his Linfield players to take inspiration from Brendan Rodgers' 'Invincibles' and maintain their stunning unbeaten run in domestic football.

The new Danske Bank Premiership season kicks off this weekend with the Blues slight favourites to retain the Championship and Healy is confident his boys can do just that after staying unbeaten since a 1-0 loss to Coleraine in the League at Windsor Park on January 3.

Celtic, who conquered Linfield 6-0 on aggregate in a Champions League qualifier, went unbeaten last season earning them the 'Invincibles' tag and Healy wants his men to keep blowing away the opposition.

"I've told the players about the run - so they know all about it," said Healy. "We are unbeaten since January and I want us to go unbeaten until January next year at least. That's the aim. Am I being ambitious? Slightly but that's the confidence that I feel I have in the dressing room with our players," conceded Healy.
