BRENDAN RODGERS is eager for his Celtic squad to achieve even more milestones in this campaign.

The Hoops boss revealed after the 2-1 Scottish Cup Final triumph over Aberdeen in May that his historic treble-winning side ticked off six of his seven targets.

Skipper Scott Brown admitted: “We’ve got a few more targets than that now, so we’ll see if we can hit them all.

“We’ve just got to maintain the same standards that we set last season – that’s in training and in games – and try to improve on the amount of touches you get, the amount of shots on target and maintain every stat we had last season and try to improve on it.

“Every month of the season, we sit down and have a meeting to see if we’ve hit our stats, whether it’s goals, possession, whatever it is, and we have to build on the ones we didn’t hit last season.

“We set standards high in training every day and we need to maintain that, whether it’s in training or in games.

“The gaffer wants to hit those stats and that’s what we need to do.

“We’ve got a huge squad now and there’s competition for places, so somebody else can easily jump in.”
