Brendan Rodgers: Believes English clubs fear Celtic

Brendan Rodgers was understandably delighted with Celtic’s performance in the thrilling 3-3 draw against Manchester City at Celtic Park.

Celtic have become the first team to take points off Manchester City since Pep Guardiola took charge and Rodgers was full of praise for his players.

“We were brilliant, the pressing and the energy. Every time we went forward we looked like we could score,” Rodgers said.

“Apart from the Barcelona game these players have been operating at a high level this season. Now, to do it against that team, it was a magnificent performance.

“How we defend is what we’ve been working on. All my teams have played with that intent. We have players that are developing and evolving all the time.

“Tonight, how they played and performed was top class. That will give them confidence going forward.”
