Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed he loved how competitive his fellow coaches have been, in his first full season in Scotland.
Rodgers is eyeing a treble, with the Scottish Cup on the horizon, having already secured the Scottish Premiership title and the Scottish League Cup.
He has also guided his side to a 43-game domestic unbeaten run, and was recently named as the Scottish PFA Manager of the Year.
The former Liverpool and Swansea boss has had a wildly successful year, and claimed he has enjoyed working with and moulding his current group of players.
And he added that he has loved the rivalry with the other managers in the Scottish top-flight.
“I have loved how competitive it has been in relation to other coaches, other managers,” he told the Daily Record.
“I have seen quite a few different tactics to what I had been used to in the south. So that presents a different challenge.
“But what’s very important is that you continue to learn as a coach, and each day you do that.”
Last time out Rodgers’ side smashed St. Johnstone 4-1 at Parkhead to move 27 points clear at the top of the league.
Aberdeen are their nearest rivals, but Rangers, who sit third, are a massive 36 points behind the Bhoys.
The Hoops have beaten Rangers in five of the six Old Firm derbies played this season, including two devastating 5-1 wins.
Next up for Rodgers and his side is a Friday night trip to the Pittodrie Stadium to face second-placed Aberdeen.
