CHRIS DAVIES has admitted old friendship have been cast aside for now as it’s impossible to maintain relationships in the Glasgow football cauldron.
Speaking about Steven Gerrard after Rodgers and Davies masterminded his downfall in the first Glasgow Derby of the season – the Celtic assistant manager believes the intensity that the rivalry brings means he’s not spoken to Gerrard or his backroom staff since he joined the Ibrox club in the summer.
“I haven’t bumped into the guys yet, but it does change relationships.
“The intensity of this city and the rivalry makes it impossible to be friends, as well as rivals.
“That’s fine. You need to focus on your club and team and that’s what we are doing.”
Celtic delivered a footballing lesson to The Rangers before the international break. The Govan club came to Celtic Park to frustrate but found it difficult to live with Celtic.
The bhoys were five steps ahead most times and got their just rewards when Olivier Ntcham put the finishing touches on a fantastic counter attack.
Celtic now head to St Mirren this weekend hoping to keep their momentum going.
