Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is putting in the work on the training field by having special one-on-one sessions with striker Adam Idah, according to Irish pundit Keith Treacy.

The striker, whose brace at the weekend proved crucial in the Hoops’ late 3-1 win over Motherwell, has swiftly become a favourite among the Parkhead faithful since joining on loan from Norwich City in the winter window.

Given his contributions so far, it is no surprise that supporters have taken to the imposing centre-forward. It seems as though the manager has, too, with his actions at Lennoxtown.

Treacy, who played for the likes of Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday, Burnley, Preston, and Blackburn throughout his career, recently spoke about Idah and Rodgers on the RTE Soccer podcast: “Thankfully now, he’s (Adam Idah) starting to score goals from open play, he looks decent in hold up play”, he said.

“Brendan Rodgers, I’m hearing is putting an awful lot of work behind the scenes with him in one-on-one sessions which makes him feel loved.”

Known for his unique style of man-management, Rodgers has previously publically stated how taken aback he has been by Idah’s talents.

He was ‘really excited’ about the 23-year-old when he joined the club, and such elation has come to fruition among the fans. The Irishman has already provided them with a few memorable moments at both Easter Road and Fir Park and is carrying the Hoops’ title fight on his back.
