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.


CELTIC 3 ABERDEEN 0: League Cup Final (November 27, 2016)


RODGERS made history when he guided the club to their 100th major honour with a 3-0 victory over Aberdeen at Hampden.

Tom Rogic kicked off the celebrations with the opening goal in the 16th minute and James Forrest completed an electrifying burst through the middle with an exquisite finish for the second five minutes from the interval.

Moussa Dembele, who hit the winner against Rangers in the semi-final, collected his fifth goal of the competition when he rolled in a decisive penalty-kick in the 64th minute.

Rodgers said: “It’s been six months and a week since I came in. We talked about what we wanted to achieve and how we wanted to do it. We are certainly well on our way to doing that. I was very pleased with the performance.”
