BRENDAN RODGERS is already planning ahead while he guides Celtic to the brink of history.
The champions can achieve an unprecedented back-to-back treble if they beat Motherwell in the Scottish Cup Final a fortnight on Saturday.
The 45-year-old Irishman has won five out of five of the domestic trophies that have been up for grabs since he replaced Ronny Deila in May 2016.
Rodgers watched the Hoops destroy their Ibrox counterparts 5-0 on Sunday for their seventh successive Premiership title before his players took off for a break in Tenerife to recharge their batteries.
But the Parkhead gaffer is still plotting for the future and said: “Look, the bad times are just around the corner.
“So, no, I can’t really sit back and enjoy this. I had this last season, you know. We won the treble against Aberdeen and then three days into my break, I had this fear of complacency.
“It’s a fear I always have.
“We produced a document on the traps we must not fall into to ensure we succeed over the longer term. So, you can’t enjoy it too much.
“When you are gone, when you are out of it, you can look back and all the nice moments can become clearer for you.
“But not right now.”
Rodgers will take his troops to face Hearts on Sunday at Tynecastle, the ground where the phenomenal unbeaten domestic run of 69 games came to a halt in December.
He will be working hard in his efforts to turn that one around, the Celtic fans can be sure of that!
