As reported by The Daily Record, Brendan Rodgers is refusing to entertain the notion of Celtic’s unbeaten season, for fear getting carried away could cost them a domestic treble of trophies.
Celtic are on the verge of an unprecedented season, just a few matches away from going the entire campaign unbeaten in all three domestic competitions.
However, for Rodgers, it’s not something he wants to hear over the next month with plenty of work left to do if they are to achieve their ambitions.
As quoted by The Daily Record, he said:
Listen, I just don’t tend to think too much about it. When you win games there is a consequence of that so if we beat Aberdeen in the Final it’ll be, ‘Okay, it’s nice’. I’ve said before, it’s very dangerous to think otherwise. Never get too carried away in this game. I’ll repeat it, a slap on the back is only six inches from a slap on the a***.
Celtic fans will enjoy hearing that their manager is still so focused on the tasks ahead rather than indulging in self-congratulation.
The Hoops are back at it again on Saturday when they travel to Ibrox to take on Rangers for the sixth and final time this season. After brushing their great rivals aside so easily on Sunday, it’s a match fans will be expecting to win.
After that match there are just four league encounters left, all winnable, and if they manage to come through that unscathed then the prospect of the unbeaten campaign all come down to May’s showpiece Scottish Cup Final against Aberdeen.
After such an impressive season, perhaps the drama is just getting started for Brendan Rodgers and his team.
