Brendan Rodgers has been called some amount of names by the Celtic support, myself included, over the last couple of years, but he is quickly winning his way back into our hearts.
Today’s performance on that horrible pitch and then a man down for an hour was admirable, it showed the true grit and determination that categorised his first stint in the Parkhead dugout and it is welcome to see it back.
With all the adulation from three sides of the Tony Macaroni, Brendan lapped it up before being confronted by a pint sized pitch invader.
Instead of handing him over to the stewards he put his arm around him and went for his walk both taking the applause of the away end and clapping the support for their 90 minutes of cheering on the Bhoys.
Celtic are currently 7 points clear of The Rangers who play Motherwell tomorrow, if they cannot manage to win that game Brendan will find himself with a 2 game buffer at the minimum.
One good thing about the Newco being in the Europa League is we will have 6 such Sunday’s where they play second.
The pressure is going no where.
