BRENDAN RODGERS has bemoaned the international break as he watched his star’s leave to head out to play for their country during the week.
After a frustrating 0-0 draw against Livingston, the fans and the players are desperate to get back to winning ways but know they have to wait before that can happen.
The Nations league has been criticised, this is now the third month in a row where the club scene has been broken up by games nobody really cares about.
Speaking about the international breaks the Celtic manager believed it breaks the cycle of games but on the other hand it gives him time to take stock of where he and his coaching staff are at.
“The international week breaks the cycle of games, we can take stock as a coaching staff, see where we’re at and look forward to the next run of games,” Rodgers told the Celtic View.
“Returning is like when you have a midweek match in Europe – it’s always a tough game on your return.”
Rodgers admitted it’s unlikely that some of his international stars will start or even play any part in the Hamilton game by the time they get back in for the staff to assess their conditions.
“Some of the boys that come back probably won’t be able to play in the Hamilton game. but it’s up to us to get them all back and see where we’re at.”
Celtic will play next Saturday away to Hamilton which will be their first of an 11 game run during the festive period.
They also have the small matter of a League Cup final come the start of December. Hopefully, everyone comes back fit.!
