BRENDAN RODGERS has hit back at suggestions the players and the club are split which is contributing to their poor start to the season.
Sky Sports pair Kris Commons and Kris Boyd were all too happy to pedal that narrative after watching Celtic lose at the weekend.
With success comes the need by others to bring you down a peg or two and that’s what we are seeing at the minute.
Celtic have been untouchable so long, they are now feeling the wrath of the people who for their own reasons, feel like they want to have a dig.
We are in a position today where a professional footballer is writing columns in the press about another club in his league and trying his best to create disharmony where possible.
Kris Boyd’s wishful thinking will not let Brendan Rodgers be distracted as he looks to get his side back on track.
On the potential of a rift in the squad, Rodgers was clear.
“We are very unified as a club. We have set high standards but we are very much together.”
“We’re not happy losing games but we’ll get back again, working hard.”
The Celtic gaffer then followed it up with a cheeky dig.
“He [Boyd] would be better suited trying to get back in the Kilmarnock team’’
Celtic are looking to defend their League Cup trophy as they come up against St Johnstone on Wednesday night. They will have to put in a good performance against a resolute St Johnstone side if they are to get anything out the match.
