Brendan Rodgers’s Celtic are going strong in the Scottish Premiership.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted to The Glasgow Evening Times that his side will lose at some point this season.

The Bhoys are going strong in the Scottish Premiership at the moment and are firm favourites to win the title.


The Glasgow giants are currently at the top of the league table with 34 points from 12 matches.

Celtic are eight points clear of second-placed Heart of Midlothian and have three games in hand.

The Hoops have yet to lose in the Scottish Premiership this season, and many will feel that they can go the entire campaign unbeaten.

Rodgers, though, believes that Celtic will lose at some point in the league this season.

“At some point it will happen,” Rodgers told The Glasgow Evening Times about losing in the Scottish Premiership. "Listen, if you could tell me that every player would stay fit, that we wouldn't have any injuries, that the pitches would remain first class then....

"But there are so many variables. It's not about the players' lack of ability. It's just that so many different things could happen.

"We could be up against a goalkeeper like the one we faced in Inverness, who has an unbelievable game and we just don't get the rub of the green.

"We could get a man sent off or something else could happen. But if everything stayed the same then we may have a chance. But at some point we'll lose."

The way Celtic are playing at the moment suggests that they do have a chance of going the entire season unbeaten.

However, as Rodgers suggests, there are a number of variables, and it will be very hard in some games.

For example, Celtic’s Old Firm rivals Rangers are certainly going to be tough to beat for the Hoops.

The Bhoys will take on Motherwell away from home in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon.
