Rodgers Says Motherwell Draw Wasn’t Good Performance – But Doesn’t Regret 7 Changes

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers admits his side’s performance away to Motherwell wasn’t a good one – but says he doesn’t regret making seven changes for the Premiership clash.

It looked like the Hoops were heading back to the top of the table after Ryan Christie opened the scoring with a sultry left-foot finish in the first-half, but a missed Leigh Griffiths penalty came back to haunt them after Denny Johnson’s brilliant late equaliser.

Rodgers rang the changes after Sunday’s Betfred Cup Final win over Aberdeen and brought the likes of Jonny Hayes and Christian Gamboa into his starting XI, with James Forrest and Odsonne Edouard left on the bench.

Speaking to the media after the full-time whistle, the Northern Irishman wasn’t best pleased, but insisted he had no regrets:

The Hoops are now facing a crucial clash with surprise table-toppers Kilmarnock at the weekend, and it remains to be seen who Rodgers opts to choose in his starting XI?
