Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers insists the game against Aberdeen won’t be easy, despite their struggles this season.
Derek McInnes’ team have won only two of their last seven league games in a from late August to late October and saw them drop out of the top six.
However, since their 1-0 loss to Celtic in the Scottish League Cup final at the beginning of December Aberdeen have rediscovered their form, winning five of their last six games.
Saturday’s 2-0 home win against Hearts puts them in third place, three points behind Celtic who cruised to a 3-0 home victory over Dundee United, and two points behind Rangers who are seated in second place.
“They are on a nice little run at the minute,” said Rodgers, according to Daily Mail.
“Where they were at the early part of the season was probably a little bit false.”
“Since the cup final they have had some good results and it will be a good game.”
“It is a place that you always expect a tough game and that is what we will prepare for.”
“There has always been different types of games with Aberdeen but we know that it is always a tough game.”
“We will go there ready to hopefully put in a good performance and get the points.”
