Brendan Rodgers taking Celtic to new heights, declares Rogic

13 Mai 2017

Brendan Rodgers hailed his Celtic players for what he describes as the "incredible" achievement of reaching 100 points in the Scottish Premiership this season after their 3-1 win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie.

"If you look at the way we are playing this season, players who aren't playing are working hard and come into the team when maybe they haven't been playing so much, and it has been an easy transition". It's not about me or any other individual, it's about the group and about how successful we can be together as one.

With three league games remaining, the nine-point advantage and significantly superior goal difference Aberdeen have over third-placed Rangers should ensure they finish as runners-up.

Celtic have beaten Aberdeen three times in the league this season and also in the Betfred Cup final.

"You can not take anything away from what Celtic have achieved this season as it has been a very special one for them".

Friday night football from Scotland tends to serve up some brilliant matches and this one tonight, a dress rehearsal for the Scottish Cup Final on 26 May, is shaping up to be a cracker.

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes was effusive in his praise of his side's performance for 80 minutes of the match, and that of Hayes in particular.

"We've always been confident that we can be the nearest challengers to Celtic and we've proved that again, and proved most people wrong, I would say". As good as you can be between both boxes, you still have to defend. This will be a hard game like the last one when we played well and won 1-0'. Irrespective of the result, we're peaking to get to the Scottish Cup final.

"We had a good academy with lots of good players and Jonny was a breath of fresh air". The crowd needed a lift and the players needed some inspiration.

"The performance from the team and the players is important".

Aberdeen had a penalty claim early in the second half when Gordon and Shinnie collided, but it looked as though the Dons man sent the ball out of play long before the goalkeeper arrived on the scene.

"It was ridiculous", said McInnes.

"It is an area of the pitch - that middle area - where we don't have bundles of options and we have to make do and try to get a result". Gordon's hesitant and Shinnie's managed to get a touch and Gordon clatters into him.

'But I think he is happy - when I speak to him he is very happy at Aberdeen.
