BRENDAN RODGERS is determined for Celtic to wrap up their seventh successive Premiership title as soon as possible.

The champions have drawn a blank twice – against Motherwell and Dundee – in their last three games, but can move 13 points clear at the top of the table if they beat Hamilton Accies this afternoon.

With six league fixtures remaining, Rodgers said: “We knew it would be tough games during this spell.

“We want to win every game we play, but we didn’t do that so we have to take our point.

“But, it’s still a great position, six games to go in the league, 10 points clear and a good goal difference.

“We have to go into each game and make it count and look to get to the finish line as quickly as we can.”

Despite gearing up for what he hopes to be another successful finish to the campaign, Rodgers is already preparing for next season.

He added: “You have to plan forward, I am sure every club has been doing that. We have been doing that for a period of time now.

“Myself, Peter Lawwell and head of recruitment Lee Congerton have had all our local and international scouts here over these last couple of days to make sure we are focused in on what exactly it is we are looking for in the summer.

“Of course, there are things you can’t plan for. But certainly we are looking at it in detail, in terms of how we can continually make improvements.”
