“Our biggest enemy this season is ourselves,” Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers looked back on Celtic’s 7-1 victory over Dundee on Wednesday night with a tremendous amount of satisfaction.  Perhaps tinged with a little frustration though, that it’s taken this long for his team to click into top gear this season.

The Celtic manager though realises that the trick is to carry this form into the next game. And that is  away at Tynecastle lunchtime to face Hearts.  If Celtic can play like they did on Wednesday night and onwards to the end of the the season, that’s clearly going to be enough to ensure a very happy ending to what has been a tough season so far for the manager, his players and indeed the Celtic supporters.

The supporters were brilliant

“It was a high level of performance. Right from the off, everything felt really good in the game,” the Celtic manager noted at his media conference yesterday afternoon.

“The supporters were brilliant and really pushed the team. The team were never comfortable and never got themselves comfortable in the game, despite the scoreline. We were pushing and were intense, fast and dynamic.

“There was quality in our goals and that’s the level of performance that we want. I’ve always felt it. Our biggest enemy this season is ourselves.

“If we perform to the level that we can do on a consistent basis then we’re a really good team. It’s that consistency of now taking that performance into the next game,” Brendan said.

Inconsistencies

“When you arrive at 10 games to go, that’s when the fun begins. That’s when you’re going into the business side and that’s what I’m really looking forward to.

“We’ve had inconsistencies leading up to this point but we’re still very much there it’s still very much in our hands with what we want to do. To have these players coming back is great, and it’s really good timing as you say.”
