Brendan Rodgers after ongoing Celtic improvement


Share this story

Brendan Rodgers has enjoyed a successful first season as Celtic manager but he says the club can improve further.

The 44-year-old only took over the reins at Parkhead last summer, but he has guided the club to both Scottish Premiership and League Cup success already this season, while they can complete the treble if they beat Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup Final later this month.

Indeed Rodgers is yet to lose a domestic game as Celtic manager and the Hoops can end the campaign unbeaten if they avoid defeat in their final three matches against Partick Thistle and Hearts in the league and Aberdeen in the Cup.

Despite their successes this season, Rodgers is convinced the Glasgow giants can continue to improve over the coming years and he is excited for what the future holds.

“The exciting part is that it’s only the beginning,” said Rodgers.

“We hope we can continue to roll out what we are putting in place here.

What we are putting in place here is a systematic approach to our work which will hopefully create a continuum of success.”

The Northern Irishman knows his side cannot afford to rest on their laurels during the close-season and he has hinted that he may freshen his squad up during the summer.

He added: “But of course for us, it’s about continuing that and the best time to do that is when you are successful so we need to keep improving.”

Celtic are next in action when they travel to Firhill to face Partick on Thursday and they are priced at 1.30 to win the match, while the home side are available at 9.50 and the draw is on offer at 5.25.
