Celtic boss Rodgers takes responsibility for ‘bitty’ start to the season

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has said he takes full responsibility for his sides poor start to the season, calling it ‘bitty’.

The Hoops slipped to sixth in the Scottish Premiership after Kilmarnock scored a 93rd-minute winner to pile the pressure on Rodgers and the defending champions.

They have already lost to early league leaders Hearts, as well as failing to make it to the Champions League group stages, Sunday’s defeat at Rugby Park was the latest embarrassment for Brendan Rodgers side.

“It hasn’t been a great start to the campaign but we have to accept that,” Rodgers told a post-match news conference.

“We’re the only ones who can make it better by playing better and getting more consistent results.

“It’s been very bitty but we have to go away and work and see where we can be better.”

“I take responsibility,” Rodgers added.

“We made the changes to try and get that energy and brightness and sharpness that may not be there if you’ve played late on a Thursday night.

“I’d have been disappointed to draw the game but to actually lose is bitterly disappointing.”
