Concatenating strings to "tr" command output

Hi All,

Please help me in forming command for the following scenario.

My input string (msg)is \'01\',\'02\',\'03\',\'04\',\'05\',\'06\' , i have removed \ and ' using
Code:
echo $msg|tr -d '\\'|tr -d "'"

which gave me output as
01,02,03,04,05,06.

I am half done here. Now i want to append single quotes at the beginning and ending of this out , with in the same command. I tried below command

Code:
echo $msg|tr -d '\\'|tr -d "'"|print "'"$msg"'"

.

But i am getting output as ''01','02','03','04','05','06''.

Please help me to get the output in below format
'01,02,03,04,05,06'.

Thanks in advance
