Daryl Murphy has set his sights on a clean sweep of the trophies still available to Celtic.
Neil Lennon's Bhoys have already been knocked out of Europe but they have made a stunning start to the domestic campaign, winning all five of their SPL matches.
Celtic entertain Inverness in the third round of the Co-operative Insurance Cup on Wednesday night and Murphy is targeting success.
"I think every competition we're left in now, especially the league, we are looking to win," said the 27-year-old, who joined from Sunderland this summer.
"We know it's not going to be easy as the cup is full of surprises, but we will be going out in every game we play to win.
"All the lads that have come here are hungry for success and I'm no different.
"I want to win as many leagues and cups as I possibly can and there are no better clubs to do that at than Celtic."
Murphy linked up well with Irish compatriot Anthony Stokes in Sunday's 2-1 victory over Kilmarnock, with both players getting on the scoresheet.
"Hopefully at the end of the season both of us will have a good few goals," said Murphy.
"We're not going to have a competition between each other, if he scores more than me then fair play."
Stokes, who played alongside Murphy at Sunderland, is also looking forward to continuing the partnership.
"Obviously I know Daryl very well from our time at Sunderland and we have a pretty good understanding. I think our styles complement each other," said Stokes.
"We did okay against Hearts last week and then with Daryl scoring the penalty after I had been brought down and then myself also getting on the scoresheet with the winner, it was a good day for us as a partnership.
"But the manager has a lot of options at his disposal up front and it is going to be up to me to show real consistency every day in training, never mind in the actual games themselves.
"But we have done well to come from behind and get the win and we have shown character and that will hopefully stand us in good stead for the season ahead."
