Brendan Rodgers‘ influence on the Celtic team is showing itself in spades on the pitch, and his dedication to passing, moving football almost resulted in one of the goals of the season at the weekend.
The Hoops hammered Kilmarnock 6-1 at Celtic Park to secure their fifth win from six Scottish Premiership matches, and keeps Celtic unbeaten domestically since Rodgers arrived in Glasgow.
But despite the goal glut, the home side missed an opportunity in the second-half to score a sensational team goal, after the ball started with Jozo Simunovic at centre-back, and made its way through 18 passes and nine different players before Kieran Tierney hit the post from close range:
Some great football yesterday. What a goal this would have been. pic.twitter.com/928ibtMrNu

Not too shabby, eh?
Celtic look like a completely different team from the Ronny Deila days, and this move probably encompasses everything that Rodgers strives for when he sends his players out onto the pitch – minus the finish, obviously.
But had Tierney finished it off, would it have been goal of the season?
