BRENDAN RODGERS has bad news for the rest of Scottish football this morning.
The Celtic boss is adamant his team will IMPROVE in the run-in towards the Scottish Cup Final at Hampden on May 27.
Rodgers aims to bring the curtain down on his debut season at Parkhead by claiming all three domestic trophies.
The League Cup has already been won after the 3-0 rout of Aberdeen at the national stadium in November.
The Hoops are hurtling towards their sixth successive Premiership crown and are currently 27 points ahead of their nearest challengers. Rodgers also believes his players are capable of lifting the championship by a remarkable 50-point margin.
Yesterday’s draw paired them with Championship outfit St Mirren in the Scottish Cup quarter-finals in Glasgow next month.
The Irishman has seen his green machine stroll past the challenges of Albion Rovers (3-0) and Inverness Caley Thistle (6-0) to set up the meeting with the Paisley team.
And he has warned there will be no let-up by the club in the next three months of a campaign that has seen them unbeaten in 30 domestic matches – a record which overtook the previous best achieved by Jock Stein’s Lisbon Lions in season 1966/67.
Rodgers said: “I always felt as the season goes on, we will get better and better and better.

“We have a little bit more coaching time in the second part of the season, so we can prepare the players in training, work well and just keep them focused.”

A Scottish Cup success is on the manager’s radar and he is determined to claim the silverware for the 37th time in the club’s famous history.

He added: “Now we have three Cup Finals. We will just keep our focus and put it to bed until the next round.

“But it’s a competition, like them all, that we want to do our very best in.”
