Breaking News: An apology is sent to Celtic supporters by Brendan Rodgers, who also states that he is “not surprised.” By the Loss of Hearts (0-2)

After Celtic’s defeat against Hearts by a score of 2-0 tonight, Brendan Rodgers extended his apologies to the audience.

Despite the fact that the Parkhead manager acknowledged that his team’s performance in the Scottish Premiership match was much below average, he was not surprised by the decline in standards.

After the squad was defeated, they were booed off the field, and chants of “sack the board” and “Lawwell get to f***” could be heard within the stadium.

In an interview with BBC Sportsound, Rodgers stated, “First and foremost, it is an apology to the support base.”With all of my time spent here, I don’t believe I’ve ever been required to do that, not even the first time or this time.

There is no doubt that the performance that was displayed tonight was not even close to what is anticipated from a Celtic player or a Celtic team.

We did not have any desire to defend, we did not have the drive to do so when we had the ball, and we did not have the intensity to do so.

“And as I mentioned earlier, it seemed as though we could have played all night without scoring a single goal.”

After having previously cautioned his players about the importance of maintaining consistency, Rodgers responded, “Not (surprised), if I’m honest because it is about consistency and mentality and I’ve seen it within the team from time to time.” This was in response to the question of whether or not he was surprised by the decline in standards.

When I observed the first half of the game against St. Johnstone and Kilmarnock away from home, as well as today, I was amazed that we were able to produce such a high level of performance away from home.

At the moment, Celtic is experiencing a high level of anxiety. Both the fact that Rodgers did not appear surprised by the outcome of today’s game and the fact that he took the initiative to apologize to the fans for the very first time are cause for concern.

“Midfielder is a must” – 52 years-old football coach Neil Lennon reveals two key signings Celtic Fc must make during january transfer window

Following the defeat that his former team, Celtic, suffered at the hands of Hearts over the past weekend, Neil Lennon has revealed the areas in which he believes Celtic require improvement.

Brendan Rodgers has been forced to deal with the fallout of consecutive losses to the Edinburgh side and Kilmarnock, but Lennon is of the opinion that if he were to reinforce two crucial areas of the club, it would go a long way toward helping improving the team’s fortunes on the pitch.

“I don’t think he’s [Callum McGregor] a great number six,” Lennon stated in an interview with Prime League Soccer. In my opinion, he would be far more effective if he played a role similar to that of a six or eight and scored goals.

Thus, it is essential for me to have a physical presence in the middle of the field.

“And obviously, if people don’t think that Oh is the man to supplement Kyogo, then another number nine, another goal scorer,” Brendan said. “And if Brendan doesn’t think that, then another goal scorer.”

I would propose that Lennon adds another two players to that list, namely a goalkeeper and a left back, but for the time being, let’s take his statements at face value.

The striker is a no-brainer. Rodgers will be lacking in the attacking areas due to the fact that Kyogo, Maeda, and Oh are virtually certainly going to be selected to participate in the Asia Cup.

On the other hand, I would recommend that he finds a striker that is compatible with his system since there is no use in going for a Kyogo-type frontman if Rodgers continues to play the way that he has played at Celtic.

The presence of a holding midfielder is essential. I concur with Lennon that Callum McGregor is not the kind of player that would be considered that. When it comes to being an enforcer in the middle of the field, the Celtic captain is a master at influencing play and being penetrative, but forget about it.

In light of this, let us hope that Rodgers has these players on his roster. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that discussions have already begun for them. I really hope that the Celtic board decides to part with the money. As a matter of fact, it is Christmas.
