Rodgers relishing busy time


Brendan Rodgers says Celtic are not worried about their hectic schedule and it's just a fact of being successful.

The Scottish giants are preparing for a run of five games in 14 days, beginning with Saturday’s home SPFL clash against Dundee and then a tough trip to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday before further league games against Aberdeen, Hibs and Kilmarnock.

However, far from being concerned about the fixture schedule, Rodgers is keen to embrace the challenge.

He said:”If you are doing well that’s what it brings. The programme of games since we came back in June has been very demanding.

“But we have a medical team here who work together very closely with the players in order to bring out the best possible team to get the results in every game we play.

“A huge amount of credit goes to the players for their ability to adapt and perform in whatever competition they are playing in and to try to bring the very best out in every game.

“What we are clear on is that success just doesn’t happen, you have to work at it. There is a lot of games, a lot of travel, but this is what you want, you want to be successful so you have to play a high number of games.

“For that you need a squad and thankfully this squad has been coping very well.”
