Partick Thistle stopper Conor Hazard says he hopes to bring the calmness and composure he learnt at Celtic to his new team while admitting that he has a little bit of a ‘mental’ side

Hazard made his Thistle debut in the draw with Dundee United at Tannadice last weekend and he hopes that the winning mentality he brought with him from Celtic will rub off on his teammates.

“Everyone has that wee mental side to them, and if you’re a goalie you’re going to have that, aren’t you?” Hazard told National Scot.

“It’s just when to use it and when not to use it.

“I think, though, you have to be very calm and collected. At Celtic, you’re trained to be calm and collected in every situation.

“It will be the same for me here and I’ll try to have an influence on the back four. Hopefully, everyone’s calm and collected on the ball, can take it in any scenario. I’ll certainly be available every time.

Simeone refuses to talk about Morata interest

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone would not discuss Alvaro Morata's future, despite reports suggesting the Spaniard is close to joining the club Having fallen out...

“No matter what situation you’re in you have to be very composed. Obviously at a big club like Celtic you have to be composed on the ball at all costs.

“The club competes in the Champions League, Europa League and has won a Double Treble.

“The atmosphere I can take off everybody is that everyone can take the ball in any situation and they never get fazed. Hopefully, here we can do the same.

“My job’s just to keep the ball out of the back of the net. For as long as I’m here I’ll look to get as many clean sheets as possible.

“I’ll also look to bring some of the Celtic atmospheres to the club — be a good, nice lad.”
