Brendan Rodgers as told Sky Sports his side still have an even higher level to reach despite hammering Inverness 6-0 this weekend in the Scottish Cup, as both the title race and cup competition in Scotland become even more of a one horse race.
Cetlic are currently 27 points clear at the top of the table and have made easy work of the cup too having won 13 games on the trot a run which has seen rivals Rangers part company with their manager as they fail to mount any challenge to Rodgers’ sides historic march towards trophies this season.
Speaking after the 6-0 win over Inverness, Rodgers said:
“I just feel we will get better as the season goes on.
“The players’ attitude was first class, firstly how quickly they regain the ball, it doesn’t give the opponent any time to make any sequences of passes.
“In my study of Inverness, they actually have some good technical players that can move the ball, but we never gave them an opportunity to do that.
“So defensively we were very strong, our pressing was excellent. And our attacking play was fantastic.”
Part of the reason for Celtic’s success has been Moussa Dembele who bagged his second hat-trick in as many games this weekend and Rodgers will be desperate to hold on to the talented youngster who’s already attracting attention from a host of Europe’s top sides.
