Celtic are on course for their seventh consecutive domestic trophy, and manager Brendan Rodgers is proud of his team’s consistency and hunger.

Celtic have a chance to add to their record trophy haul in Sunday’s Betfred Cup final against Aberdeen.

The Bhoys have been dominant domestically, as they won a second consecutive treble last season.

“It shows incredible consistency and hunger, which is what you want as a manager,” Rodgers told Sky Sports.

“When we first came in, we set our targets together in relation to being the very best we can be.

“Celtic is obviously a winning club so, when you play for Celtic, you have to win.

“But of course we want to win in the best way we possibly can, which is playing a really aggressive, attacking style of football.

“So, nothing has changed in terms of how we set out from the beginning.

“But, what has been admirable has been the focus of the players and the intensity in which they have just kept going kept going and keep winning titles.

“And we don’t aim to stop.

“Our idea is to have that hunger to keep going and we want to do that again come Sunday.”
