Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed he is disappointed with his team’s performance against Motherwell but defends decision to make seven changes.
The former Liverpool manager made changes to the team that defeated Aberdeen in the Scottish League Cup final last weekend, with the likes of Johnny Hayes and Christian Gamboa coming into the starting lineup at the expense of James Forrest and Odsonne Edouard.
It looked like the Scottish Premiership champions were heading back to the top of the league after Ryan Christie opened the scoring with a goal in the first-half, but a missed Leigh Griffiths penalty came back to haunt them after Denny Johnson scored a brilliant equalizer for Motherwell.
Speaking to reporters after the full-time whistle, Rodgers wasn’t pleased, but insisted he had no regrets.
“If you don’t take opportunities in the game, then you leave yourself venerable at the end. It was a disappointing goal to concede so it was definitely two-points lost,” Rodgers said, according to Talkingbaws.
Celtic now face a crucial clash with surprise league leaders Kilmarnock at the weekend, and it remains to be seen who Rodgers opts to choose in his starting XI.
