Celtic have been in a bit of a rut as of late. The football they’ve been playing looks flat and they look far from the side that swept up every domestic honour in the past two seasons. Pressure has been starting to build up on Brendan Rodgers, but his message today has given the fans a bit of belief back.
BR: “My message is I am privileged to be here. I love my work here. I love my challenges here. I’m looking forward to the next stage of the season to show our fighting qualities.” #STJCEL

This season is Rodgers third at Parkhead and he’ll be keen to make it nine domestic honours out of nine. To do that he’ll need to start with the Scottish League Cup and that is the competition that he will be setting his side up for tonight when The Hoops travel to St Johnstone for the quarter-finals of the tournament. St Johnstone lost 51 to Rangers on Sunday and it could be a good game for a number of The Hoops to get back to it.
Celtic have failed to score more than one goal in their last four games but if Rodgers can get some of the zip back that his side had last season then there’s no reason why they can’t blow St Johnstone away and get back to winning away after their shock defeat at Rugby Park to Kilmarnock on Sunday. A win tonight if vital and it will set them up well ahead of what will be a big Scottish Premier League clash with Aberdeen on Saturday.
