Yesterday saw Celtic edge a 1-0 win over Aberdeen at Hampden Park to make it seven consecutive trophies since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers at Parkhead. It was a big win that the supporters all cherished on a fine Sunday, and the fans knew they’d do it after seeing the team which Rodgers put out.

The fans wouldn’t have made any changes to the side which Rodgers trusted against Aberdeen and that says a lot about how right he got it. Usually, there are fans who will jump on their manager for getting it wrong ahead of big games, but the Parkhead tactician couldn’t have been more right, going with his form team for a game where those who are on a good run love to thrive.
Evidentally, this isn’t the first time that Rodgers has pulled off a tactical masterstroke and the Bhoys can’t get enough of the North Irish gaffer as he jumps from success to success in Glasgow. The fans will be enjoying their League Cup win for the next few days but then it’s back to business on Wednesday when they travel to Motherwell in the Scottish Premier League, and the fans will be relying on Rodgers to get that one right as they aim to retake top spot from Rangers.
