Rodgers Rejoices At Celtic’s ” Brilliant Position ”
Written by RockSport on January 10, 2018
Brendan Rodgers believes Celtic “are in a brilliant position” as they prepare for the second half of the season.
The league leaders have used the Scottish Premiership winter break to undergo some warm weather training in Dubai for a second year running.
“We packed so much into the first part of the season,” Rodgers told CelticTV.
“This gives us a chance to focus a lot on the principles of our game and we will look to put that in place when we start back again on 20 January.”
Under Rodgers, Celtic have won the past four domestic trophies on offer and are well placed to defend their league title.
Their pursuit of successive domestic trebles continues with a Scottish Cup tie at home to Brechin City on 20 January.
Celtic return to European competition with a Europa League tie with Zenit St Petersburg next month.
“It’s been a really tough season up to the break and this gives us a chance to recharge and put some good coaching into the players, but also to give them a chance to connect again in great weather,” Rodgers explained.
