Rodgers must start Brown and drop McGregor

Rodgers must start Brown and drop McGregor

Celtic have been the dominant force in the Scottish Premiership in recent times, with the title firmly within their grasp after securing all three points at Rugby Park last weekend. 

The Hoops were knocked out of the Europa League by Valencia on Thursday night as Brendan Rodgers’ side failed to secure a positive result over in Spain, which comes as a huge disappointment for supporters.

However, Celtic will welcome Motherwell to Celtic Park in their next Scottish Premiership fixture. The Steelmen have won their last five league games, so things aren’t about to get any easier for Rodgers’ side.

With that being said, this is how Celtic can make up for their European exit today…

SCOTT BROWN

Scott Brown has been the standout performer for the Hoops in recent times as he managed to score the winning goal in the dying embers against Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership recently, as well as putting in a respectable performance against Valencia in the Europa League on Thursday night.

So, the Scotsman can help Celtic make up for their European exit by putting in yet another dominant performance, with his tackling ability helping keep things tight and his accurate passes getting the Hoops moving forward.

CALLUM MCGREGOR

Callum McGregor is normally one of the most reliable players in Brendan Rodgers’ side, but he hasn’t been able to live up to expectations on the field recently. Indeed, his performance in the Europa League the other night definitely didn’t help their cause as he offered very little and struggled to retain the ball at times.

Therefore, Brendan Rodgers must make the decision to drop the Scotland international star as he could do with taking a breather after a busy period, which could help him rediscover his form.
