BRENDAN RODGERS will become a Celtic Centurian today when he takes charge of the Hoops for the 100th time against Hibs.
The irishman, who replaced Ronny Deila in the Parkhead dug-out in May 2016, has lost only one of his 75 games against domestic opposition.
There have also been 64 triumphs and 10 draws
In Europe, the story hasn’t quite followed along similar lines.
Rodgers has seen his team win eight, lose 11 and draw five of his 24 European encounters.
Overall, the champions have scored 156 Premiership goals, 22 in the Scottish Cup, 26 in the League Cup and 36 in Europe for a total of 240.
They have conceded 90 times over the same period, 45 of them in European competition.
Rodgers became only the third manager in the club’s history to complete a domestic clean sweep following the legendary Jock Stein who managed the feat twice in 1966/67 and 1968/69.
Martin O’Neill also went into the Celtic Hall of Fame when he lifted the treble in his debut season in 2000/01.
SIX OF THE BEST FOR RODGERS – Highlight Number 3
HEARTS 0 CELTIC 5: Premiership (April 2, 2017)
CELTIC were unstoppable as they rampaged to a runaway triumph on their way to collecting their sixth successive Premiership crown.
Tynecastle was a green-and-white wonderland as Scott Sinclair led from the front with a scintillating hat-trick. Remarkably, the previous year he was experiencing relegation from the English top flight with Aston Villa!
Stuart Armstrong and Patrick Roberts added the others to cap a champagne performance in the capital.
Rodgers beamed: “It typified how we’ve been for most of the season – their attitude, determination, attitude, style and intensity. To win a pressure game like that is a remarkable achievement from the players.”
