Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has been very honest with his comments about the Hoops display in the rather dull 2-1 win over Hamilton on Sunday.
The Hoops boss revealed that his players didn’t do enough to entertain the Hoops support, but the most important thing was getting the win, which moves the Hoops to within three points of another league title.
He also blamed Hamilton’s artificial pitch for the lack of good football during the game.
“Once we got the goal early in the second half, it wasn’t the best spectacle for supporters, and I don’t think a lot of games are on that surface,” he said to the Celtic View, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“It’s difficult on the surface for the speed of the game, and it was probably a bit of a bore for supporters.”
The Hoops haven’t been at their best for much of the season, but are still on the verge of winning a second consecutive domestic treble, with a Scottish Cup semi-final with Rangers on the horizon.
Football Insider verdict
The Hoops boss is being very honest, but that might not go down well with fans who have spent quite a lot of money to watch the Hoops turn in another poor performance. The Bhoys have struggled at times this season, almost being content to do just enough and no more than that to get the victories in certain games. Rodgers will have to try and build his team back up for the weeks ahead, as if the performances don’t improve there is a real chance that the dream of another domestic treble will end in tears, which would put a dampener on what has been a decent season for the Bhoys.
