Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is not happy with some of his rival’s aggressive tactics.

Celtic star Kieran Tierney’s broken nose in the Scottish Cup Final after an elbow by Aberdeen’s Jayden Stockley is still something that rankles the Celtic boss.

Tierney missed the rest of the cup final after the suffering the injury, but was still able to collect a winner’s medal after the game.

Speaking at the club’s AGM today, the Celtic boss said: “I hear excuses that a player is clumsy or can’t jump without elbows. It still puts players out of the game.”

Celtic face Motherwell in next week’s Betfred Cup Final, with the Fir Park side’s hard challenges upsetting then Rangers boss Pedro Caixinha, who was sent to the stand when the clubs met in the semi-final last month.

Celtic return to league action this weekend with a trip to Ross County, with the club looking to increase their unbeaten domestic record to 64 games.

The Hoops then face a difficult looking trip to Paris to face PSG in their penultimate Champions League group game, before tackling Motherwell in the aforementioned Betfred Cup Final. This will be the first of three games between the teams in six days.
