Brendan Rodgers acknowledges that Celtic fans have every right to express their opinions, especially in the wake of some dissatisfaction following the January transfer window and a recent stumble against Aberdeen.

Celtic saw their lead at the top of the Premiership effectively dwindle to zero, with Rangers close behind and a game in hand, the fans’ frustration was palpable at Pittodrie, highlighted by a banner with a pointed message towards the Celtic board.

The team welcomed Nicolas Kühn from Rapid Vienna for £3 million and secured Adam Idah on a loan from Norwich until season’s end. Yet, the additions haven’t quelled some supporters’ concerns, who expected more significant moves based on Rodgers’ earlier hints at bringing in “quality players.”

Rodgers, in a conversation with Sky Sports, reflected on the unique pressures of managing Celtic, noting the importance of maintaining perspective amidst the highs and lows. “It is probably one of the few clubs where you have won six games and drawn one out of seven but it feels more than that.

“Context is important and perspective is something you always have to have here as a manager and that is certainly something that I have,” he mentioned.

He continued, emphasising his respect for fan opinions and the inherent expectations at the club. “Supporters are entitled to make their opinion known and always will be especially with the demands at this football club. All I can concentrate on is making sure the supporters are

clear and have clarity when they go into the games.” This statement underlines Rodgers’ commitment to transparency and focus on guiding the team through the challenges ahead.

Many fans believe this team don’t have the ability to win most of their games between now and the end of the season and that will lead to us losing our title. The bhoys need to dig deep and show what they’re made of.


  1. Unless Rodgers can figure out how to restore normal service to Kyogo then he can forget about winning the league. Rangers seem to be far more fired up under Clement than this Celtic team is under Rodgers and that is seriously worrying.

  2. We need to be 4- 5 times better than Sevco to allow for the penalty kicks they are given by the league ref’s any time they are behind or drawing late in games.
