BRENDAN RODGERS is refusing to indulge in any talk of the domestic treble in his first season as Celtic manager.
The Hoops picked up the first of the trio when they beat Aberdeen 3-0 to win the Betfred League Cup at Hampden yesterday.
However, asked about the prospect of a clean sweep, Rodgers answered: “I’m just thinking about Motherwell on Saturday.
“The players need to celebrate this success, because that’s important. But after that we come back in and get ready for Motherwell, because we have a tough run of games in December.
“It’s about keeping on pushing standards. The standard against Aberdeen was very high in a pressurised Cup Final situation.
“There was a calmness, they played with great control, in defence and to attack. We scored some very good goals.

“I have to be pleased, but we are trying to improve standards on and off the field. We can never become complacent. It is still very early in shaping up the team, to play in a certain style. That’s going very well.

“There are things we can analyse, to see how we can improve, but ultimately the role was to win the Cup and, thankfully. we managed that.

“It is a winning club. That is what the history of this great club has been based upon. So, it marks a milestone, that century of trophies over the course of the history.

“Now we have got to look to the next one, to start off the next century of trophies. That will be important for us and the club.

“But, for now, it is a great night for the Celtic supporters to celebrate. They must have enjoyed the performance.

“However, now we push for the next one.”
