Brendan Rodgers shares what he finds just amazing about Celtic

New Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is presented to the fans after the press conference

Celtic have been unstoppable in Scottish football so far this season.

Celtic beat Ross County 2-0 at Parkhead on Wednesday night to move 16 points clear of second-placed Rangers in the Scottish Premiership.

First-half goals from Erik Sviatchenko and Stuart Armstrong did the damage for Celtic on a night which saw Rodgers's side extend their unbeaten run.

The Hoops have now won 18 of their 19 Premiership outings this season - a 2-2 draw at Inverness being the only blemish - and the Glasgow giants look unstoppable.

They are also unbeaten in 22 home matches in an impressive run of form which stretches back to Ronny Deila's time in charge of the Bhoys.

Rodgers's side are also on a 17-match winning run in terms of domestic matches, and the Northern Irishman told Celtic's website that he is pretty much in awe of his troops.
