“Motherwell’s goal against the ethics of the game,” says Brendan Rodgers

BRENDAN RODGERS refused to answer any questions on the speculation linking him to the Leicester City job with the Celtic PR boss intervening to end a BBC Scotland interview in which the Celtic boss hit out at the disgraceful unsportsmanlike behaviour from Motherwell Fc players and management is stealing a goal at the start of the second half.

“I’m disappointed for my players, we’ve kept clean sheets this year and that’s a goal that goes against our work, and the ethics of the game,” Brendan said.

“That’s what’s disappointing. Motherwell had the chance to do something about it but decided not to.”

Brendan reckoned that Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson has the chance to correct the cheating by instructing his players to allow Celtic to walk the ball into their goals to correct the shameful behaviour of the Motherwell teenager Scott who played on as the ball was thrown down the line to return possession to Celtic after an injury to Ryan Christie.

Robinson sounded nervous in his post match interview and giggled about not knowing what to do. Any decent thinking football supporter the world over would know what to do – let’s call it THE RIGHT THING.

“It was a very good win,” Brendan notes.

“The players were very good and had good control of the game. They showed their guts and spirit after Motherwell’s goal.

“We focused and ended up scoring top class goals after that. Huge credit to the players.”

On Ewan Henderson who deservedly was named today’s Man of the Match, the Celtic Manager enthused about the 18 year old’s performance.

“I thought he was tremendous. Delighted he got man of the match.

“He showed his poise, his control and he was a joy to watch. He played with real maturity in the game so I’m delighted for him.”

On the injury to Ryan Christie that started all the controversy the Celtic manager provided the following update: “He looked like he tweaked his hamstring so we’ll just have to see what the scan says.”
