Brendan Rodgers has suggested that Celtic’s players have already forgotten about the 7-1 Champions League defeat to PSG.
With the Betfred Cup Final against Motherwell only two days, the Celtic manager told the club’s official twitter account that all at Celtic Park are only thinking about the cup final.
He said: “The players had a day to recover yesterday and they are refreshed and really focused for the weekend.
“I have no complaints and we’ll look to be better and that’s something we always look to do.”

Despite Celtic’s heavy defeat in Paris, the Hoops remain favourites to finish third in their Champions League group and clinch European football after Christmas.
Celtic are three points ahead of Anderlecht and the teams meet at Celtic Park in December to decide who ends up in the Europa League.
The Bhoys are aiming to win the Betfred Cup Final for a second year in a row on Sunday.
They won last season’s final 3-0, thanks to goals from Tom Rogic, James Forrest and Moussa Dembele.
The game is part of Celtic’s British record run of unbeaten domestic games, which currently stands at 64.
The last time Celtic played Motherwell in a cup final was in 2011, where a Neil Lennon managed triumphed in the Scottish Cup by three goals to nil.
