Celtic strengthened their position at the top of the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon. Away at Livingston, the Bhoys were formidable despite playing the majority of the match with ten men.

In the end, the visitors came away with a 3-0 victory. It was a triumph that continued the Bhoys’ impressive domestic run of late and after it, manager Brendan Rodgers was asked about such form.

A reporter from the BBC questioned the Hoops gaffer on recent results at tough away venues, saying they were respectable and that the champions are ‘gaining a head of steam’. Rodgers replied somewhat sarcastically and said: “Supposedly we’re struggling, we’re supposedly struggling [Rodgers then chuckles], but listen it’s consistency isn’t it, we’re still a long way to go from where I’d like us to be.”

Continually, the 50-year-old has been public in his opinion that his team are not the finished article yet and that he wants them to be better. That does not take away from the current form, though, and the fact that after going to Pittodrie, Ibrox and Livingston, the Celts sit pretty at the top of the table.
