Ex-Hoops striker Craig Beattie sat down for an exclusive interview with the Scottish Herald, and discussed his former club's impressive campaign thus far, but insisted that Brendan Rodgers' has merely achieved what was expected of him.

The Glasgow giants have been totally dominant on the domestic front his season, having gone unbeaten in the league after 33 games, and currently hold an incredible 24 point lead over second placed Aberdeen.

Rodgers has also guided his team to the Scottish League Cup, beating the Dons 3-0 in the final back in November, with a Scottish Cup semi final against fierce rivals Rangers on Sunday to look forward to.

But Beattie, who spent four years at Celtic Park during the early stages of his career, told the Scottish Herald how the Hoops boss hasn't overachieved, highlighting how Rodgers would have expected nothing less from his side this season:

"Don't say I didn't warn you because this is exactly how I envisaged it going. And I am sure as far as Brendan's expectations are going, he is probably just meeting the ones he has set himself, and not over-achieving either."

Despite their total dominance, Celtic still have a lot to play for this season. They need to avoid defeat in their final five games to become the first ever Scottish side to complete an entire campaign unbeaten.

They also need 13 points from those five games to beat the Scottish Premiership record points haul of 103, set in the 2001/02 season by Matin O'Neill's side.

And if Rodgers guides his side to those incredible feats, surely then Celtic's campaign will be viewed as one where they have overachieved.
