BRENDAN RODGERS has enjoyed record FOURTEEN victories in his 18 derby duels.

It’s a commendable achievement that not even the legendary Jock Stein can match.

The Celtic manager has also seen his side held on three occasions while suffering a solitary reverse.

In his first spell at Parkhead, the Irishman guided the Hoops to ten triumphs over the city rivals and he has added handsomely to that tally in his comeback campaign.

Rodgers has seen the champions win three league games – two at Parkhead and one at Ibrox – while there has also been a 3-3 draw in Govan.

The gaffer masterminded a 2-1 success in the east of Glasgow on May 11 which propelled Celtic towards their third successive title – and twelfth crown in 13 years – and he followed up a fortnight later with a 1-0 win in the Scottish Cup Final.

Adam Idah thumped in the late winner to hoist Rodgers’ total to 14 – and counting.
