Brendan Rodgers Calls Betfred Cup Win the Most Satisfying Trophy of His Celtic Career

Brendan Rodgers Calls Betfred Cup Win the Most Satisfying Trophy of His Celtic Career

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has claimed today’s Betfred Cup win at Hampden was the most satisfying trophy of his entire Hoops career so far.

The Premiership champions claimed a seventh consecutive domestic trophy by seeing off a stubborn Aberdeen side 1-0 at the national stadium, with Ryan Christie’s strike in first-half stoppage time enough to separate the two sides.

Celtic are now just two more trophies away from completing an unprecedented, historic ‘Treble Treble’ but the Northern Irishman insists this afternoon’s victory was particularly sweet.

Speaking to BBC Scotland: after the full-time whistle, he explained: “I feel very satisfied.

“Of all the trophies we’ve won this is probably the most satisfying because it wasn’t an easy start to the season for us.

“We played against a tough team today at the end of a tough week and the players came through to show that mentality, strength and talent.

“It’s big hearts they’ve got and another trophy.

“In the last two months he (Ryan Christie) has been amazing and he deserves the man of the match, the status.

“When I came up here it used to be Charlie Christie’s son, now he’s Ryan Christie’s dad.”

Rodgers’ reign looked to be in troubled waters at the start of the campaign after failing to qualify for the Champions League group stages, and failing to recruit desired targets in the summer transfer window.

However, after today’s win, Celtic are now on the road to a third domestic treble, and will be top of the Premiership once again if they manage to win their game in-hand later this month.

What do you think of Rodgers comments, and Celtic’s remarkable achievements?
