BRENDAN RODGERS revealed why he called a post-match huddle at the end of their disappointing defeat to Hearts.

The Irishman brought all his players together after the defeat and spoke to them all. Most of the Celtic fans appreciated the unity and togetherness it showed in the face of a bad defeat.

The Celtic manager gave the players a hard truth on the day.

“I wanted to pull the players together and let them be aware that they were better than us today and we have to accept that.

“What they have done is absolutely amazing but to use this feeling that they haven’t felt for 18 months, use it as a lever moving forward and let’s learn from it.

“We made too many mistakes in the game to get anything out of it. Defensively we struggled. Hearts played a direct game which is fine and we failed to cope with Lafferty in the first period.”

The Celtic gaffer then walked with his team to the traveling support who were obviously disappointed but the fans applauded the run which had just come to an end.

A run we are all unlikely to see beaten in our lifetime.


  1. Well done Celtic for achieving such an amazing run and at least it was not against sevco that it came 2 an end ?
    Also just in case that u were not aware , from the last time that Celtic last lost domestically sevco have lost 17 times which makes me and all fellow tims feel a wee bit better Hail Hail

  2. Absolutely. Well done to the team for such a magnifient run. It was incredibly enjoyable and might never be repeated. Well done also to the fans who were supportive and dignified in the defeat this weekend. It put all the ‘moaners’ and their blame culture to shame.

  3. I thought it only huns that were unrealistic fantasists,not so there are some among us.


    Away n support sevco you morons,it’s sport FFS you get beat now and again.?HH

  4. Great achievement we should all be so proud of the bhoys but I think a great amount of gratitude should should also go to the amazing Celtic support that stayed to the end on Sunday it just goes to show that we are number 1 on and off the park ??????
