'Cut the nonsense out' – Burley rips into Rodgers for post-match Celtic v PSG comments
Former Celtic midfielder turned ESPN pundit Craig Burley has been heavily critical of Brendan Rodgers and Celtic following the 7-1 Champions League defeat to PSG.
Speaking on ESPN, Burley thought that Rodgers’ after match comments about there being “lots of good moments” to take from the game were ill-advised at best.
The former Scotland international said: “Every Celtic fan can accept they are not in the ball game with Barcelona and PSG.
“They worship the ground this man walks on, because they have this incredible run in the Scottish Premiership
“But cut the nonsense out about how many good things, they were an embarrassment. Rodgers has got to make sure to set this Celtic team to be difficult to beat,” he concluded, in typical forthright style.
Despite Burley’s criticism of the Celtic boss, the Hoops are still in a great position to clinch European football after Christmas.
