Take it as Led we'll be tops.

Byline: Anthony Haggerty

JOE LEDLEY insists Celtic are finally ready to turn their Champions League form into domestic dominance.

The Welshman reckons the days of dips in performances after European matches are over after Saturday's impressive 3-1 victory over Kilmarnock.

The 25-year-old midfielder bagged the second in the triumph as Neil Lennon's rampant side swept aside Kenny Shiels' men at Rugby Park in devastating style.

Last Wednesday night's Champions League win over Spartak Moscow booked the Hoops a place in the last 16 of the competition for the first time in five years.

FRUSTRATING And with European football now off the card for three months, Ledley revealed they are now looking to build some much-needed momentum in the bread and butter of SPL competition.

Ledley said: "We played some great football against Kilmarnock at times in both the first and second half.

"It has been frustrating for us. We have tried to come back from European games and play as well in the league as we have in the Champions League. It has been difficult in terms of travelling and fitness as you are worn out after those games.

"But I'm glad we appear to be over it. Kilmarnock had beaten us already this season so we wanted payback and we did it in the right manner. We just need to take it game by game now and try and get as many points as we can."
