Craig Gordon: This is what Rodgers did after Celtic defeat to Anderlecht
Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has revealed that manger Brendan Rodgers was livid with the team’s performance in the 1-0 Champions League group stage defeat to Anderlecht.
The Bhoys were expected to defeat a side that they had easily beaten 3-0 in Belgium, but a passive display saw the Hoops lose all three of their home ties in the group stage.
As quoted by the Hoops’ official Twitter account on Friday, Gordon – who made a vital save early in the game – disclosed that the boss wasn’t amused at all with the display.
He said: “He spoke in the changing room afterwards and he wasn’t particularly happy with aspects of the performance.”
