After securing a win over Dundee, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers expressed his contentment with the team’s performance, emphasising their persistent efforts throughout the match.


Goals from Turnbull, Kyogo and O’Riley sealed the win for the Hoops, who got back to winning ways at home.

The Celtic manager pointed out that the second half saw a shift in dynamics, with his team finding more spaces, appearing more threatening, and converting their opportunities. The introduction of Reo Hatate aided this for sure, with his introduction.

Oh also allowed Celtic to play football in the final third, holding the ball up well.

Rodgers emphasised the importance of patience in such matches, commending his players for embodying this virtue to eventually secure the win. Fans will be hoping to see more of such composed and persistent performances as the season progresses.

In his post-match interview with BBC Scotland, Rodgers said:

“I think the persistence in the game I was happy with,” he said. “I thought we played well in the first half without scoring.

“Give credit to Dundee, they worked very hard defensively, but sometimes you have to tire out the opposition and then I thought in the second half we found more spaces and looked good and threatening and took our goals well.

“There was a much greater fluency and things were connecting much better. It is a game of patience and the players did that very well.”

It was a good second half performance from Celtic as they now head into Champions League action.
