Kris Boyd has questioned why Brendan Rodgers has not faced criticism for the 7-1 defeat Celtic received courtesy of Paris St-Germain.

The Kilmarnock midfielder shared his opinion on the Hoops boss in his latest column for the Scottish Sun, and believed his comments would have some “shaking their heads.”

“Is he so untouchable right now that people are scared to call it like it is?” asked Boyd before answering, “Because that’s what it seems like.

“Celtic go on about their history as a club but Rodgers has now been manager for three of their worst results ever.”

The former Rangers favourite highlighted the two defeats to PSG, along with the 7-0 defeat against Barcelona last season and added the defeat to Lincoln Red Imps as games where the Bhoys had “let themselves down.”

“It all boils down to the way Celtic set up and how open they leave themselves when they should be shutting up shop. It’s all very good Rodgers saying he’s got a football philosophy.

“But sometimes you need to accept that’s only playing into the hands of the best players in the world.”

Rodgers was in charge for all of these games, having been manager of the Bhoys since 2016, taking over from Ronny Deila.

Under Rodgers’ guidance, Celtic have won the Scottish Premiership, the Scottish League Cup, Scottish Cup and gone on a 64 unbeaten run domestically to beat a 100-year-old record.

The previous record was 62 games unbeaten, and the Bhoys beat that by winning 4-0 against St Johnstone, and extended the run in their last game by beating Ross County 1-0 in their last game.

The impressive form sees the Hoops sit atop of the Scottish Premier League with 33 points from 13 games, making them six points clear of second placed Aberdeen.

The Hoops next game is the Scottish League Cup final against Motherwell on Sunday.
