Celtic succumbed to a late Motherwell equaliser on Saturday afternoon. It seemed as though the Hoops were heading for three points after David Turnbull netted from the spot, but it wasn’t to be.

The performance of the champions was sub-par, but manager Brendan Rodgers thinks it will be simple to lift his players after the result. He said (Celtic FC on YouTube): “Very easy. We’ll get in and recover. it’s a very honest group of players and we’re all very disappointed we’ve not picked up three points after being in the position we were in.”

Up next for the Celts is a trip to Rome to take on Lazio. The players must get themselves motivated again but as Rodgers admitted, that won’t be tough.

A win against the Italians would bring the mood surrounding the club significantly back up, although securing such a result will be arduous. To keep their hopes of European progression alive, though, the Hoops must win in the Stadio Olimpico.


  1. I don’t know what Rodgers has done to Kyogo but he is nowhere near the striker he was under Ange. It must be really confidence-draining for Kyogo to find himself now chasing shadows due to the new Rodgers way of playing.

  2. Why does Rodgers keep playing with two wingers then when it is time to substitute instead of playing Forrest, Turnbull and Johnson he always seems to leave one of them out? Tonight he brought in Tilo and Forrest was the sub left out. I suspect those three men all play together in training. Also, Neither Holm nor OH is a top-class forward, However, Shankland is and should now have an inquiry Made by Celtic for a fee required by hearts for him. He is the best centre forward in Scotland.
