Brendan's sympathy after Robinson cup final misery

 

By Ronnie Esplin

Victorious Brendan Rodgers sympathised with his fellow Northern Ireland man and Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson after Celtic eased to a 2-0 victory in yesterday's BetFred League Cup final.

Former international assistant manager to Michael O'Neill, Robinson was left bitterly disappointed as his battling side were overcome at Hampden.

The big talking points were a Celtic penalty and then just before the hour mark when referee Craig Thomson judged Cedric Kipre to have fouled Celtic winger Scott Sinclair inside the box and red-carded the tearful Motherwell player.

Celts boss Rodgers conceded: "I am sure Stephen will feel it is a bit harsh."

Robinson responded by saying he would rather have suffered a final thrashing than lose in the circumstances they did.

He was also quick to laud the achievement of his countryman Rodgers and the Celtic team.

The Hoops extended their unbeaten domestic run to 65 matches and Rodgers became the first Celtic manager since Jock Stein in the late 1960s to capture four trophies in succession.
