Musician and lifelong Celtic fan Rod Stewart has revealed that the Hoops need the likes of Rangers, Hibernian and Hearts to be strong this season.
Despite the club’s heavy 5-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night in the UEFA Champions League, the Bhoys have otherwise been dominating the Scottish Premiership as they remain undefeated in their campaign so far.
Rodgers’ team have one four out of their five Premiership games so far, and also secured a 1-1 draw against St. Johnstone at the end of August but Rod Stewart thinks it has been too easy for his side and has named an area the club need to strengthen.
Stewart rang into Jim White’s show on TalkSPORT and when the presenter said that Celtic need Rangers, the singer responded: “Oh absolutely, and we need Hibs and we need Hearts.”
“I can’t stand it when it’s too easy for us.
“I wish we had one more defender. I think we’re good up front, got a flood of midfield players and a bit shaky at the back but we’ve got a good goalkeeper.”
The singer spoke to the show ahead of Celtic’s Champions League game on Tuesday against PSG, and his comments about the “shaky” defence appeared to be apparent as the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe found the back of the net for their side.
Celtic will now look ahead to continue their impressive run in the Premiership as they host Ross County at Parkhead on Saturday.
