Rodgers: Rangers being top of league ‘irrelevant’ to Celtic

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers says his side are focused on their own game after losing ground to Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premier League.

Celtic’s 2-0 defeat at Hibernian on Sunday allowed their Glasgow rivals to overtake the champions at the summit, with Daniel Candeias’ goal securing Rangers win over Hamilton at Ibrox.

Steven Gerrard’s side now lead Celtic by a point, having played a game more, however Rodger’s insists their rivals results are ‘irrelevant’ as his side concentrate on themselves.

“You look at the league and you see it’s tight which I’ve always said is good,” Rodgers told the Herald Scotland.

“Of course, when there’s competition there that’s good for you.

“But we always look at our own game because what Rangers do is irrelevant to us. We have to do our own job and play to our own standards.

“It’s tighter this year of course. But like I say we’re in a very good position and if we can take that into the second part of the season I’ll be very happy.”
