‘Shocking’ – Keane destroys Rodgers over comments after Celtic defeat v Anderlecht


Roy Keane was unimpressed with Celtic after their 1-0 defeat to Anderlecht at Celtic Park and berated Brendan Rodgers’ attitude to the game.

While working as a pundit on ITV’s UEFA Champions League Highlights show, Keane labelled the result “shocking” and described Celtic’s performance as “really poor”.

The pundit said it was unacceptable for Celtic to lose at home to Anderlecht and disagreed with Rodgers’ post match comments.

Rodgers said it was a “great testament” to the players that the Hoops secured entry into the Europa League by finishing third in their Champions League group, as that was the overall objective.

The Bhoys qualified for the Europa League despite losing as they had a superior goal difference.

Keane responded to Rodgers’ claim by saying: “I think the key to management nowadays is to set your standards really, really low and you’ll be in the game for a long time.”

The Hoops won only one game in their Champions League campaign this season, defeating Anderlecht 3-0 at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.

Celtic suffered heavy defeats to both Paris St Germain and Bayern Munich, with PSG putting 12 past Celtic across their two meetings.

Keane has blasted Celtic before over their Champions League performances before.

After they suffered a 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in October, the pundit revealed that he believed they didn’t learn from their mistakes, and condemned them for it.
