Brendan Rodgers did not mince his words at yesterday’s press conference when asked about some of his players.

He was full of praise for his current crop of Celtic stars and especially his top striker Leigh Griffiths.

Brendan spoke highly of the Scottish striker and in his opinion the player doesn’t get the credit he deserves because he’s Scottish.

Here’s what he said about the 25 year old.

“If he had a different name – this guy would be talked about as being worth 15 million quid, for sure. Luis Suarez played with that edge and he was alright!”

Rodgers has had a bit of time to assess and is starting to figure out who can play a good game over the ones who just talk it.

Tonight’s game against Astana will be another test of character for the bhoys as they look to progress.
