Image for It’s your fault! Rodgers and Lennon trade jokes over Celtic expectations

Brendan Rodgers opened up on the outside pressures that face a Celtic manager.

Following the 2-0 win away to St Mirren to book a place in the last eight of the Scottish Cup the Celtic boss was interviewed live on Viaplay Sport.

While Emma Dodds asked the first question Jim Goodwin and Neil Lennon soon took over with both men, especially Lennon able to empathise with the pressures of the job.

Since losing at home to Hearts two months ago Celtic have won eight and drawn once but that run hasn’t spared the club, the manager and players from criticism.

On Wednesday night Celtic may slip into second place in the SPFL title race but after a demanding nine days of visits to Aberdeen, Hibs and St Mirren Rodgers feels that his side is in a strong place for the business end of the season.

After going through some of the issues his side have faced there was a moment of humour between two Irishmen who have both had two stints managing Celtic.

    Glad to get a home draw v Livingston…

    Sevco might have to be lucky to beat Hibernian away if they try as hard as they did against Celtic the other night !
