CELTIC’S unbeaten domestic run of 32 games goes on the line again against Caley Thistle in Inverness tomorrow night.
Since being held to a 2-2 draw by Richie Foran’s team in September – the only blip in the remarkable sequence – the Hoops have beaten their Highland rivals twice – 3-0 in the Premiership and 6-0 in the Scottish Cup.
Brendan Rodgers said: “If the players weren’t human, I would say we’d never lose a game.
“Unfortunately, they are – they are human! They’ve shown this season already superhuman efforts by continuing with the focus and determination.
“We should’ve won the game in Inverness, but their keeper had an incredible game.

“We’ve played Inverness twice since then and had two victories. I must say they’ve shown up well since we last played them. They’ve had two very good results – away to Hearts and Friday night against Rangers (sic).
“It will be a tough game. The onus is on us, as it always is, to try and break them down and look to attack and get the positive result that we want.
”The sign of a really good team that you are never satisfied, you have to keep pushing.
“When I first came in I said to the players our job isn’t to defend the title, it’s to win it. Win it means to play with an aggression and fight in every single game.
“That’s what they’ve done and they’ve been absolutely first-class at that. We’ve got to keep it going.
“We’ve got 12 games left in the league and, hopefully, a few more Cup games to go.
“I see the players still fresh in their mind, they’ve got that focus in their eyes and we’re seeing it in every game that we play.”
