Brendan Rodgers is Humble in Celtic Defeat to Rangers

Brendan Rodgers was humble in defeat as Celtic lost 1-0 to Rangers this afternoon.

The Hoops manager watched his side produce a very poor performance to lose at the home of their fierce rivals.

They went into the game three points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table after beating Aberdeen 4-3 in midweek.

But they were poor this afternoon, with Ryan Jack’s goal proving enough for Rangers to get their first victory in the fixture since 2012.

Rodgers would have every right to be furious with his team as they were very disappointing and came off second best all over the pitch.

Yet he was humble while speaking post-match, crediting Rangers for their performance while simply picking out why it didn’t go well for Celtic:

Rangers were fully deserving of all three points due to their performance – and that now sees them sitting on 42 points alongside Celtic, but still in second place due to goal difference.
