Brendan Rodgers Reveals There’s ‘a Disease’ Rotting the Celtic Park Pitch

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed there’s ‘a disease’ rotting the club’s Parkhead pitch, after the surface looked patchy during the weekend’s Scottish Cup win over Airdrie.

The Hoops hierarchy spent a whopping £1.5 million on a state-of-the-art ‘desso’ surface last summer, which is essentially a mixture of natural grass infused with artificial fibres which helps prevent pitches from turning sticky and bobbly.

However, fans were shocked on Saturday evening when they turned up for the Fourth-Round tie to see the poor state of the turf, especially when Scottish football has just been on a two-week winter hiatus and nobody has been playing on it.

Supporters could be forgiven for having serious questions about the investment, and when asked about it during his media conference today, Rodgers explained exactly what’s going on:

Ironically, Celtic now have three consecutive home matches in a row, with St Mirren, Hamilton and St Johnstone all visiting the East End of Glasgow in the next 10 days, but what do you think of the situation?

Could it prevent Celtic from playing their natural attacking game?
