Kamara brushes aside title talk

05 February 2010 05:55
Kamara endured a disappointing debut for his new club on Tuesday night when they slumped to a 1-0 defeat at Kilmarnock, wasting the game in hand they had over their arch rivals.[LNB]The aftermath of that defeat saw manager Tony Mowbray and Kamara's fellow forward Marc-Antoine Fortune claim overhauling Rangers was still possible.[LNB]But Kamara reckons Celtic should put talk of winning the league to one side while the gap at the top continues to get wider rather than narrower.[LNB]"At the moment, it's not good to say, 'Yes you can win the title', because we're 10 points behind," the on-loan Fulham striker said.[LNB]"We just need to win, win, win and see what happens.[LNB]"The title at the moment, it's so hard.[LNB]"If we won on Tuesday, we'd be seven points behind."[LNB]Kamara, 29, believes Celtic were unlucky to lose at Rugby Park after they created and missed a host of chances for the umpteenth time this season.[LNB]And the new arrival is keen to help them make amends in Sunday's Active Nation Scottish Cup fifth-round tie at Dunfermline.[LNB]"The good thing is we have a game on Sunday and Wednesday," said Kamara, who admits the cup is now the club's most realistic chance of avoiding ending the season empty-handed.[LNB]"This is the target," he said.[LNB]"You need to win something and this kind of thing you can win."[LNB]And Kamara hopes his own poor record in cup competitions does not prove an omen this weekend.[LNB]He added: "When you're at Celtic, we're ambitious to win the trophy because we need to win something this year and I think the cup is a good thing."[LNB]One of eight transfer-window arrivals at Parkhead, Kamara pleaded for patience to allow the new faces to gel.[LNB]"Two or three new players were playing on Tuesday," he said.[LNB]"You just need a bit of time for everyone to play like this or like that.[LNB]"And I think after two or three games, the team will be at a high level."[LNB]And he is fully behind the vision of manager Tony Mowbray, who he worked under at West Brom for most of the 2006-07 season.[LNB]"He's a very good coach with the players," he said.[LNB]"He talks a lot with the players and I love his sessions.[LNB]"He changes his training all the time and you improve with him.[LNB]"This is most important.[LNB]"When you come here, you know you can do something to improve."[LNB]The Senegal international added: "He's not a liar.[LNB]"He's straight and I like this.[LNB]"When he wants to tell you something, he tells you to your face and that's most important."[LNB][LNB][LNB]
