BRENDAN RODGERS has laughed off Craig Levein’s latest comments about the Tynecastle grass after last season when the Irishman commented on the embarrassing nature of the pitch last term.
After Celtic comprehensively beating Hearts last season, the Celtic manager made comment about how poor the turf was and Levein, as well as some in the media, have been obsessed with commenting on Rodgers idea that top flight pitches should look the very best to help sell the game.
Levein commented yesterday that the grass was in need of a cut and when Rodgers heard this at his press conference on Friday he had a bit of a chuckle at the comment and said he’ll get the players to bring wellies.
Craig Levein: "It's a bit long just now."
Brendan Rodgers: "We might need to play in wellies!"
How long should the grass on the pitch be at Tynecastle on Saturday?
