Brendan Rodgers may have just seen his side extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to 27 points above second-placed Aberdeen, thanks to a 2-0 home win over Motherwell, but as Sky Sports reports, the Celtic boss wants something done about the state of the Parkhead pitch.

Goals from Moussa Dembele and James Forrest extended the his side’s unbeaten domestic run since the start of the season to 31 games but Rodgers wasn’t completely happy, noting:

“I think it is an old pitch here, so we need to modernise the field.

“It is a concern for me when you are trying to entertain supporters and play a level of game, the pitch is vital.

“Our players have to deal with a real difficult pitch.

“Technically they are having to make sure of their touch at times before they get it under control. They can’t play first time, it is difficult.”

With the season going so well, at least domestically, it’s no wonder that Rodgers is looking at any areas he can improve, whether that’s playing wise or even the pitch.

Celtic have become a true force under his management and the former Liverpool and Swansea manager will want to leave nothing to chance as he strives to make his record-nearing side not just the best in Scotland, but also one of the best in Europe too, something that’s eluded the Hoops for far too long.
