Kris Boyd Asks if Brendan Rodgers is Immune to Criticism Following Celtic’s Defeat to PSG

Former Rangers striker Kris Boyd has asked whether Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is immune to criticism after his side were thrashed 7-1 by PSG in the Champions League.

Boyd also claimed that Rodgers has now been in charge for three of Celtic’s “worst results ever”, two of which came against PSG during the current campaign and also last year’s 7-0 drubbing from Barcelona.

The Kilmarnock striker was writing for his column in the Scottish Sun, when he said the only positive of being torn apart by the Ligue 1 giants was that it may keep Rodgers in Scotland for longer.

“Moussa Dembele’s early goal against PSG was great to see.

“But I’m sorry, anyone who says there are positives to take from Celtic’s defeat needs to give themselves a shake,” Boyd wrote.

“Is Brendan Rodgers immune from criticism? Is he so untouchable right now that people are scared to call it like it is?

“Because that’s what it seems like.”

Boyd, who won two league titles and as many Scottish Cup during his first spell at Ibrox, added, “The only good news for Celtic fans is that the doing they got is probably going to keep Rodgers in Scotland longer than he’d maybe like.

“Because for me the big clubs in England he’ll fancy managing one day soon won’t be impressed by his team’s performances against the big boys.

“But c’mon, being battered time and again is doing no one any good and, for the life of me, I can’t understand why Rodgers isn’t getting slated for it.”

Are Boyd’s comments on Rodgers a fair assessment?

Or is he being harsh on a manager who has been a revelation up until now with the club’s supporters?
