By Will Butcher
John Kennedy has revealed the three main things Brendan Rodgers has brought to Celtic to transform the team.
Hoops assistant manager Kennedy has watched from the dugout alongside Rodgers as Celtic continue assert their domestic dominance by steamrolling their Scottish Premiership opponents.
Speaking ahead of Tuesday night’s clash against Hamilton, Kennedy was quoted by Celtic’s official Twitter account as saying the former Liverpool boss has installed a new-found confidence among the Hoops squad and explained what makes him special.
“Brendan has got the full package, he ticks all the boxes and has filled the players with confidence,” explained Kennedy.
JK: Brendan has got the full package, he ticks all the boxes and has filled the players with confidence.

In Europe, Celtic surpassed expectations as they earned three points with two draws against Manchester City and a point against German outfit Borussia Monchengladbach.
Rodgers, who has also managed Watford and Swansea, has already masterminded his side’s Betfred Cup triumph after they demolished Aberdeen by three goals to nil in last month’s final.
The Hoops have looked assured at the back, conceding just 12 league goals so far.
At the other end of the pitch, a freedom and incisiveness about Celtic’s attacking play has seen them notch on average more than 3 goals every league game.
Rodgers’ new signings Moussa Dembele and Scott Sinclair have proved instant hits at Parkhead, as they fire Celtic to what will be their 48th Scottish Premiership title.
Rodgers and Kennedy will be in the dugout at Celtic Park once again on Tuesday night, as they look to increase their lead even further with a win against Hamilton.
