Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama hopes the club can take the feel good factor from their weekend Scottish Cup win into this week's Champions League second-leg against Juventus.

The Kenyan helped the Hoops beat St Mirren 2-1 in Paisley to reach the last four, just days after losing to Motherwell in the SPL.

Despite going into Wednesday's tie 3-0 behind, Wanyama says the players are looking forward to the match.

He told Celtic's official website: "It is good to get into the semi-final, and it was very important to win the match.

"We're glad we won the game and now we have the next round to look forward to now.

"It was hard to come to St Mirren for a Scottish Cup game because we lost to them in the League Cup semi-final not that long ago. We used that as our motivation as we had already lost to them.

"They are not an easy team but we worked hard and we got the result. It was fantastic to get the win. Hopefully we can go on now and do our best in the competition."

The 21-year-old added: "Everybody wants to go out on the pitch and do their best. We did our best against St Mirren and hopefully we can do the same on Wednesday.

"We all want to play, and if I get my chance I will do my best to help the team get a positive result. That's all we can do - go into it hoping for a positive result.

"We are not going to go in feeling defeated. You never know what can happen in football. We still believe we can do something - anything can happen."
