    Manager praises players' attitude to busy schedule

  • BRENDAN Rodgers heaped praise on his players for the way they handled a busy start to the season and has promised Celtic will be at their best when they face Dundee in the Premiership on Saturday.

    Many of the Hoops players have just returned from international duty and are now gearing up for a packed scheduled of six games before the end of the month. Brendan Rodgers insisted that his squad will be well prepared to deliver a high level of performance in each of the games, though, starting with Dundee this weekend.

    “The game against Dundee, like every other game, will be very difficult for us,” said the manager. “We respect all the opponents we play but always look to bring our level of performance and make it a high level that hopefully gets us three points.

    “Last month was a very busy month. I thought the players were outstanding in their focus and everything they put into all the games. There are a lot of games which will be of a high level, but if you’re doing well that’s what it brings.

    “We have a medical team here and we all work together very closely with the players to get the best possible results we can.

    "There’s a huge amount of credit that goes to players for their ability to adapt and perform in whatever competition they’re playing in and look to bring the very best in every game.”

    The manager, who picked up the Ladrokes Premiership Manager of the Month award for September, also praised the attitude of the players who have stepped when changes have been made to the starting XI.

    “It makes me very satisfied to see the professionalism of the players. When they are out of the team for a few games and are asked to come in and perform, they do that.

    "It’s hugely satisfying for myself and the staff to see the level with which they train, how they lead their life and how focused they are.

    "They’re very focused on their work, when they’re asked to play they do a fantastic job. That’s what you need if you want to be successful as a player and as a team. The players are very hungry and focused on winning.”
