Brendan Rodgers has said he will not change the style of football played by his Celtic team.

The Celtic manager has been criticised in some quarters following the Hoops’ 7-1 Champions League hammering by PSG.

Pundits and some Celtic fans have called for Rodgers to make his tactics in Europe more defensive, but talking to the Scottish Sun, the Celtic boss revealed that is not on the agenda.

The Northern Irishman said: “I don’t need to justify to anyone how we play, as long as the players want to play and work that way.

“We played four midfielders and we played one up front. What do they want us to play? Seven at the back, two midfield players and one up front?

“Or do they want me to be camped in around the box and lose 4-0? No chance. It won’t happen” he continued.

“I live in the reality.” he concluded.

Despite the heavy defeat, Celtic still seem likely to clinch European football after Christmas.

The Bhoys are three points ahead of Anderlecht and the teams meet at Celtic Park next month with Europa League qualification on the line.

Celtic return to domestic matters this weekend, as they take on Motherwell in the Betfred Cup Final.
