Rodgers’ record on the line in Scottish Cup clash with St. Johnstone

Brendan Rodgers’ outstanding record of winning domestic trophies is on the line again this weekend.

Since arriving in 2016, Rodgers’ Celtic side have been unbeaten in all domestic cup ties as the double treble was secured last season.

With this year’s Betfred Cup already won, Sunday’s home tie against St. Johnstone at Celtic Park is the next hurdle to be overcome if the Hoops are to achieve an unprecedented treble treble.

The Bhoys go into the game full of confidence and in good form since returning from their Dubai winter training camp. They’ve won six straight games in 2019, without conceding a single goal.

But injury concerns still persist, especially in defence, and Rodgers will have to use his squad to its full potential as he waits for the treatment room to clear – especially with a season-defining Europa League clash against Valencia on the horizon.

Speaking on Friday, the manager said: “We’ve played St. Johnstone four times this season, but we’ve always tried to train the players that every game is different. You have to respect every game, and we work very hard on excellency.”
