Rodgers urges Celtic to go and rewrite history

Rodgers urges Celtic to go and rewrite history

Celtic are trying to win back-to-back trebles, and are one win away from their seventh consecutive title.

Manager Jose Mourinho had visited Hampden Park last month to watch Scotland's worldwide friendly against Costa Rica in a scouting mission for Tierney, who foiled his plans after withdrawing from the squad - as per the Daily Mail.

"The last five [league games] will really get the players focused and ensure that we're ready", Rodgers said.

The 20-year-old - with nine senior worldwide caps - would prove to be a versatile option for United as he can also operate as a centre back.

Graeme Murty's side defended poorly as their rivals - the runaway Scottish Premiership leaders who have already won the League Cup - went 2-0 up through Tom Rogic and Callum McGregor in the first half and then made the result emphatic thanks to penalties from Moussa Dembele and Olivier Ntcham, while Ross McCrorie was sent off.




In a first-half they thoroughly dominated, it was the Australian Rogic who was afforded far too much time in the Rangers box to turn and neatly finish the game's opener.

However, the former Hoops manager and player doesn't reckon Brendan Rodgers will start with both for the Hampden showdown.

Tomorrow at Hampden, Celtic have a chance to extend that...

The Celtic boss told BBC Radio Scotland: "I was very proud of the team". We played around their shape, Rangers looked like they were trying to block the middle of the pitch but that allowed us to exploit the sides. It was always going to be a hard game.
