Summer Window: ‘We’re all easily replaced and we all know that,’ Celtic star

CRAIG GORDON spoke about the winning mentality that Brendan Rodgers has brought to Celtic and the fierce competition for places within both the squad and the team at the club and he believes this is what will drive the current crop of Celtic stars onto even more successes.

“The manager gets into the head of players and makes sure everyone is in the right frame of mind for the big games,” Gordon said.

“The preparation for every game is outstanding. Every little detail from the travel to the food, it’s all absolutely perfect.

“He makes sure everybody knows exactly what’s expected of them, from the players right through the staff. It makes everything easier for us to go out on the pitch and perform.

“He wants us to improve for next season. I’m sure there’ll be the new players coming in as well and he’ll want to take them to the next level again.

“That’s what drives him and, in turn, what drives everyone at the club forwards. That’s what we’ll have to respond to.

“The players here will need to raise their level again if they want to continue.

“We’re all easily replaced and we all know that, so we have to keep our standards high to make sure we’re still in his plans.”
