Brendan Rodgers is Not Happy About Motherwell Antics This Week

Brendan Rodgers is Not Happy About Motherwell Antics This Week

Brendan Rodgers is not happy with Motherwell after Celtic completed three consecutive games against them with a 5-1 win.

The Hoops boss spoke after his side convincingly won at Parkhead, with Odsonne Edouard’s hat-trick and James Forrest’s double doing the business for the champions.

It’s been a week with plenty of talking points since Celtic won 2-0 in the Betfred Cup Final last Sunday.

The controversial penalty decision involving Scott Sinclair was the first point of focus before one involving Callum McGregor became the talking point after Wednesday’s 1-1 draw between the teams.

Today passed without incident as Celtic ran out big winners – but Rodgers still showed his unhappiness with what he believes has been undiginified Motherwell behaviour this week.

The Northern Irishman seemed particularly unhappy with Motherwell chief executive Alan Burrows, who he claims was walking around Fir Park with a laptop trying to prove Celtic didn’t deserve their penalty:

The tweets Rodgers appears to be talking about are these, sent by Burrows after the game:

Of course, Rodgers could be speaking about someone else, but it’s likely it’s Burrows who’s contributed to his annoyance.

On the pitch today, the game passed without any controversial incidents, helped in a big part by Edouard’s devastating hat-trick.
