Brendan Rodgers was asked his thoughts on recent comments from an ex footballer who has a wee radio show.
The manager, who has managed at the top level in England was quick to defend the comments that put Celtic and the Scottish game down.
“With all due respect, it’s a lack of knowledge of football” the Celtic manager concluded.
“We all love to see the Premier League and I was part of it but football is global. With all due respect, Celtic is one of the biggest clubs in the world”
“But if your eyes are only on one league, you tend to ignore what’s around it”
The manager has it spot on as usual. The EPL hangers on, who brag year after year about the riches they receive and predominantly lose try to talk down our game as if it were nothing at all. Players come to Celtic in spite of their opposition, many players on these clubs books are there because of the opposition.
The ignorance and silliness involved in the latest spat has us laughing out loud and you’ll notice we made a conscious effort not to mention the guilty parties because a) we weren’t sure who they were until we asked google and b) we’re guessing they say this to drum up listeners for their wee show. Good luck to them.
