Brendan Rodgers delivers one-word verdict on Celtic squad
By Matt Farr
Brendan Rodgers has labelled his Celtic squad ‘superhuman’ after their remarkable domestic record this season.
Celtic have gone the entire 32-game domestic campaign unbeaten, and with 25 wins from their 26 games in the Scottish Premiership this season, they have established an incredible 24-point lead at the top of the table.
Rodgers has witnessed his side drop points on just one occasion this term, in a 2-2 draw with Inverness back in September.
The two sides are set to go head-to-head once again on Wednesday, with Rodgers hoping to return from the Caledonian Stadium with all three points.
With their sights now set on finishing the season unbeaten, as well as lifting the domestic treble, Celtic can move one step closer to their goal with a 15th-consecutive win in all competitions.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Rodgers needed just one word to describe his side’s exploits this season, hailing their efforts as ‘superhuman’.
He said: “We have won every game from that point [the 2-2 draw]. If the players weren’t human I would say we would never lose a game.
“They are human but what they have shown this season already is superhuman efforts to continue with the focus and concentration.”
Celtic have met Inverness twice at home since the September stalemate, winning both games. They scored nine goals across the two meetings and kept two clean-sheets.
With the likes of Aberdeen and Rangers both trailing in their wake, Celtic have remained largely unchallenged for the league title this season.
Old Firm rivals Rangers have seen themselves slip further down the table in recent weeks, having gone without a win in four games.
The Hoops have also had the better of both sides in the cup competitions, defeating them both on their way to lifting the League Cup crown earlier in the season.
