Brendan Rodgers: Focus is key if Celtic are to rewrite history

Brendan Rodgers: Focus is key if Celtic are to rewrite history

As for the remarks by King, which were interpreted widely as an indication that the Ibrox board will not extend Murty's period as interim manager beyond the summer, he said: "I haven't had a conversation with the chairman".

"We have had a really good training week and we enter into it to win".

"I'm glad Moussa's penalty went in", Rodgers told reporters. "It's a lonely place standing out there watching that but it's not something I shirked away from and the players shouldn't shirk from it either, if anything we need to make sure this doesn't happen again".

League Cup winners and Premiership leaders Celtic, who are trying to win successive domestic trebles, have met Rangers three times in the league this season with Celtic winning both of their trips to Ibrox and the other game at Celtic Park ending goalless. "I will look at myself and learn from it".

Midfielder Andy Halliday was immediately replaced by Josh Windass and he made his unhappiness clear as he took his seat in the technical area.

That game saw striker Alfredo Morelos pass up a terrific opportunity to at least secure a draw - but his manager has backed him to score if presented with an opportunity this weekend.

But that was as good as it got, and Murty said: "I challenged them at half-time to get the second half going and give our fans something to cheer about".

"I would like to apologise for the first half".

Dembele really was as close to "unplayable" as you can possibly get today, and if he is to head for pastures new this summer, it's going to take an very bad lot to replace him.

"You would rather have centre-forwards in the position to miss chances than not get there. For us he is another person who can come in and as he's shown he has got he potential to cause them problems and can nick a goal at important times hopefully".
