TON-UP Bhoy Brendan Rodgers enjoyed his century of wins as Celtic boss with the 5-0 mauling of demoralised Dundee at Dens Park last night.

And, as he reflected on his successes since arriving on May 16 2016, the Irishman admitted: “It should have been more!”

The champions illuminated a dark Halloween evening on Tayside with some brilliant passing, movement and finishing to move within four points of Hearts, Saturday’s opponents at Parkhead.

The Hoops, of course, still have a game in hand and another potential three points for a team that has rediscovered its mojo by scoring EIGHTEEN goals in their past four domestic games with victories over St Johnstone (6-0), Hibs (4-2), Hearts (3-0) and the Jim McIntyre’s Premiership strugglers (5-0).

Rodgers admitted: “I didn’t know it was my 100th win. Someone just told me there. We should have had more! How many games have I had – 144? How many losses? Twenty-one? That’s too many. I should have won more.

“I’m always proud to manage the club. My job is to give the fans as many wins as I can. We need 101 now.

“We played very well. The team was very cohesive in our pressing and creativity, played to really high level technically. We also showed level of our fitness, that ability to pass and move. You need fitness.

“Coming off the back of a really tough game at the weekend, it was a great demonstration.”
