BRENDAN RODGERS has given his reaction to watching his side fall to a late defeat to Kilmarnock.
The Celtic manager made four changes to the side that beat Rosenborg. Ntcham was suspended and in came Euro goal hero for Odsonne Edouard. Also starts for Christie and Mikey Johnston as the gaffer did his best to freshen up a stale side.
It was more of the same from what we have seen from Celtic in recent times. Defenders with so much possession passing among themselves with no movement in front and very little penetration.
Speaking after the game – the Celtic manager says there is nobody to blame for the defeat today but themselves.
“It’s always a sore one if you lose a late goal. We have no one to blame bar ourselves. We can’t complain.”
“It was a scrappy game but I still felt we had the better moments and more control over the game but two basic situations cost us.
“I take responsibility. We made the changes to try and get that energy and brightness and sharpness that may not be there if you’ve played late on a Thursday night.”
“It hasn’t been a great start to the campaign but we have to accept that. We’re the only ones who can make it better by playing better and getting more consistent results. It’s been very bitty but we have to go away and work and see where we can be better.”
Celtic will be back in SPFL action Saturday at home to Aberdeen where a big performance will be needed.
