In a startling revelation from the Celtic camp, the notable absence of Alexandro Bernabei from last Saturday’s Matchday squad was attributed to an off-field lapse: the player overslept and was late for a vital team meeting.

Bernabei, the left-back whose skills and determination had been a highlight during the pre-season, was nowhere to be seen in the game against Ross County – a match which Celtic won 4-2. The Daily Record provided insights into the unfolding story. Arriving late for his commitments, Brendan Rodgers, not one to mince words or actions, reportedly decided that Bernabei would not be part of the squad.

This decision underscores the strict code of conduct and the high standards Rodgers has wants to keep at Celtic. While Bernabei’s has had a decent pre-season, he should be making sure he doesn’t fall foul of the manager. Signed by the club’s former boss, Ange Postecoglou, Bernabei’s place under Rodgers was never going to be guaranteed. It will be up to the Argentinian to show his commitment and make sure it doesn’t happen again.

With the Aberdeen clash looming this weekend, Bernabei is left in a precarious situation, uncertain if he’ll make the squad.


  1. Bernabei should get a pass on this one but warned not to repeat it.Young months old baby in the house,sleepless nights.Been there done that.Going into work like a burst baw.However he is a highly paid athlete and needs to find a solution.
