Rodgers warns rivals Celtic are getting back to their best

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers put a warning out to the rest of the Scottish Premiership today, stating his side’s 5-0 thumping over Hearts in Glasgow is a sign they are finding their rhythm again.

The win followed Celtic’s semi-final victory in the League Cup last weekend, and it sees the Hoops remain in second place in the table, just a point behind today’s opponents with a game in-hand.

“Today typified our achievements over the past two and half years,” he told BBC Scotland.

“We’ve been in European competition playing really difficult games and to produce what we’ve produced today shows our hunger and a sense that the team’s back. Some of our attacking combination play was unbelievable.

“I think we’re getting back to the level we want to be at. We’re getting our flow back and aggressive going forward.

Celtic’s next match sees them host RB Leipzig next Thursday in the Europa League, where Rodgers’ side will need to get a positive result to keep their European campaign alive.

“When you win games, it gives you confidence, but we really look forward to our game here in the Europa League.”
