BRENDAN RODGERS organised a round of applause for his captain Scott Brown in the Celtic dressing room after tonight’s impressive 3-0 win over Motherwell which propelled the Champions back to the top of the league.
The applause from his teammates was merited for this and every one of his 500 appearances for the club. Broony is a Celtic legend.
The manager was also delighted with his side’s performance.
“That was a very good night’s work. We did very well, in particular the first-half. The players were bright and scored two very good goals. Great to see the young boys come in and make a contribution,” Brendan said.
The boss was particularly pleased with the performances from the Development side Bhoys who grabbed the two special goals this evening.
“Anthony Ralston was great. He’s back to the level of training to where he was a year or so ago. He did very well on the night,” the manager stated.
“Young Mikey Johnston came on and finished really well. It’s great for the two young boys. They’re growing all the time.”
One negative was the first half injury to Odsonne Edouard, currently the only striker available to Celtic. He was having an excellent game and set up Ralston for the opening goal before his injury.
“He felt it tight around his abductor. We’ll assess it over the next 24 hours,” Brendan said. Fingers crossed on that one – unbelievable that French Eddie was taking some stick on social media at the weekend from the fickle element within our support.
And on his captain, Brendan had this to say.
We gave Scott Brown a round of applause after the game in the dressing room. To play 500 games for Celtic shows your professionalism, endurance, quality and how you are able to look after yourself in that time.”
