CELTIC boss Brendan Rodgers has set his sights on a historic double treble to make up for disappointment in Europe.

A collapse against Zenit St Petersburg in Russia on Thursday night ended the Europa League adventure and now the Hoops can concentrate on winning their seventh successive Premiership title.

The League Cup has already been won and Rodgers’ men are three games away from reclaiming the Scottish Cup.

He said: “We have a great opportunity now to go on and the next possibilities are the league and the Cup.

“To do that would bring yet again a historical season for us.

“Our focus is now very much on the game at Aberdeen tomorrow.”

Rodgers’ side will be well up for the challenge against a Dons team they beat six times last season – twice in Cup Finals – and have added to that praiseworthy tally with another two successes during this campaign.

The Parkhead gaffer added: “The past is the past now. We will learn from that.

“You have to look forward and for us this is a really exciting finish to the season now.

“In the main, we will have one game a week, so the players will be super intense, super ready for all the games.

“Let’s go and really attack this last part of the season and show our qualities.

“Now we have a clear run domestically. From June of last year, we have been virtually playing every other week.

“The squad has had injuries. The players have shown great fight right through until this stage so now we have a clear run at it and we will be looking to finish the season very strongly.”
