By John Reid
Brendan Rodgers has once more been given plaudits for the job he has done so far as Celtic manager.
Rodgers lead Celtic to a record-breaking 63rd domestic game without defeat in Saturday’s 4-0 win over St Johnstone, he has been in charge for 62 of those games.
Writing in The Times, Matthew Syed has saluted the ‘breathtaking’ transformation in Celtic from the side which looked so listless at the end of Ronny Deila’s time in charge at Celtic Park.
Syed writes “The turnaround under Rodgers has been breathtaking.
“They have risen to every challenge, dealt with every adversity…he has also inspired the players he inherited to new heights.

“The remarkable thing about watching Celtic under Rodgers has been their immutable passion, their willingness to press high and fight for the ball.”
Rodgers has done done a sensational job at Celtic since taking the job in May 2015.
He completed the first domestic treble since 2001 last season, has qualified two years in a row for the lucrative Champions League Group Stages and is on the verge of clinching European football after Christmas.
Perhaps his greatest feat however, has been improving the play of players who were thought to be finished with injury – like Scott Brown – or had no future at the club – like Stuart Armstrong and Callum McGregor – and turned them into mainstays of the team.
