Brendan Rodgers has continuously attached his name to old and new records in Scotland ever since he arrived in Celtic Park. With each passing month, Rodgers seems to unearth some new achievement.
The Irishman has broken a lot of current records but also invented a few of his own. Records that are unprecedented, records that will probably gain more acknowledgement in years to come than they do presently.
Apparently, Celtic have not been themselves this season, at one point the dressing room was split and the club was in crisis. The board and the management were torn apart. The truth is Celtic have not performed as well away from home as they did in the last two seasons. Their home form, however, is the one in the spotlight for all the right reasons. (continues below..)
So far this season, Celtic have won all of their 13 home games in the league. This has only been previously bettered by Martin O Neill in the 2000/01 & 2002/03 seasons. Rodgers fellow Irishman racked up 14 and 18 home wins respectively in his first two seasons. An SPFL record.
Celtic have only conceded four goals at Paradise this season but these stats will be put to the test today as a resurgent Motherwell visit Celtic Park. Fans will be hoping their team have recovered from a midweek trip to Spain. Celtic exited European football at the hands of Valencia. If only some of that domestic home form could be carried onto the European stage.
