Tony Mowbray insists he never assumed managing Celtic would be "a bed of roses".

Less than eight months into his reign, the former West Brom boss finds himself under substantial pressure, with the club in danger of ending a season empty-handed for the first time in seven years.

Yet, Mowbray claims his job has been just as hard as he expected when he took charge and resolved to stamp his own identity on the team. "Change is difficult in any walk of life, in any business, any industry," said the 46-year-old, who is attempting to bring a more attractive style of football to Parkhead.

"With the glare and publicity of the football industry, it is more transparent, I suppose.

"But I felt change had to happen and, as you go along, it's not always a bed of roses and not always win, win, win.

"What I do know is that when you get it right, you will expect to win, win, win."

He added: "The only reason I'm here, I'm assuming, is because of my past record of being able to change teams around and be successful along the way.

"It doesn't always happen straight away."
