Brendan Rodgers has revealed the secret behind his Glasgow Derby success above all other things.


Speaking to Celtic TV after just watching his side dismantle Dundee, the Irishman was asked about his Ibrox record and how he has managed to win so many games in enemy territory.

The Celtic manager admits it hasn’t always been easy but the resilience, calmness and the general temperament of his team have seen them come away with some pretty big results.

Rodgers believes, the shift in mentality since coming to the club had helped the bhoys pick up some big wins on the road with his players being prepped and ready to go for all scenarios.

With the clash set up for December 29th, it will be another challenge for Rodgers who has been juggling his team for the whole of December so far because of injuries.

It’s not been an ideal month on the fitness front BUT the players coming in have been stepping up and Brendan believes the mentality of his dressing room gives them a big advantage at Ibrox.

Speaking to Celtic TV about the mentality Rodgers said: “I don’t know what it was like before. But I just sensed a feeling when I came in.”

“It’s not so much about changing minds but changing a mindset.

“There’s a difference. The sense was that the feelings around it were more negative than positive.

“It’s just pointing out the obvious. If you want to win and win titles, you’ve got to be able to play at the biggest stadiums, whether you like it or not.

“We play with real calmness and that is important because to play in these big games you have to be calm.

“The players have shown consistently the temperament that they have.

“Last season we were behind in the game twice and had a man sent off.

“It hasn’t been all plain sailing but the excellent resilience that they have shown and the quality has been absolutely brilliant.
