Brendan Rodgers gave a stinging post-match press conference about the standards at the club after a win against St Johnstone. Celtic were 1-0 down after an hour and the manager has said that he was the “angriest he had been in his career at halftime”.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Rodgers said that there were players at the club that were wanting to be too comfortable and not attain the standards of the club and that would need to change.
"It's ambition. Some players want to be too comfortable and just do enough. It's not enough at this club." ❌

It is difficult to recall when Rodgers was that raging or came across as annoyed in his players. The manager has said that he wants quality into the club during the January transfer window and you’d have to think that there will be a few players that are either moved on or replaced.
“It’s probably the angriest I’ve ever been at half-time as a manager.”
