Hoops stars know boss Rodgers could axe us all, reveals Gordon


Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon claims the fear of being replaced will ensure they maintain the high standards set by Brendan Rodgers.

Gordon and his team-mates secured an unprecedented double treble on Saturday with a William Hill Scottish Cup final win over Motherwell making it six domestic trophies out of six since Rodgers took over.

And the Scotland international insists they will be unrelenting in their quest for domination next season.

“The manager gets into the head of players and makes sure everyone is in the right frame of mind for the big games,” said the 35-year-old. “The preparation for every game is outstanding. Every little detail from the travel to the food, it’s all absolutely perfect.

“He makes sure everybody knows exactly what’s expected of them, from the players right through the staff. It makes everything easier for us to go out on the pitch and perform.

“The players here will need to raise their level again if they want to continue.

“We’re all easily replaced and we all know that, so we have to keep our standards high to make sure we’re still in his plans.”
