Rodgers Still Haunted by Late Goal and Dropped Points against Inverness
One of the biggest disappointments for Celtic this season was the 2-2 draw against Inverness earlier in the campaign.
If it not was for this result, the Scottish outfit would have had a perfect record of 10 wins out of 10 games. One would assume that manager Brendan Rodgers has managed to get over this result considering that it was more than two months ago. However, the former Liverpool manager says that the result continues to haunt him. Alex Fisher scored a late goal to secure a draw for Inverness after Celtic were leading for much of the game through a goal from Scott Sinclair in the 34th minute.
Prior to the goal from Sinclair, Tom Rogic had given the away team lead before King equalised for Inverness in the 28th minute. The result came just a few days after the 7-0 thumping result in the hands of Barcelona in the Champions League. Hence, it was understandable that Celtic players were feeling the after-effects of this match. Rodgers says that it is difficult to see that the only points dropped by Celtic this season have come courtesy of a late goal at the start of the campaign.
Compared to last few seasons when Ronny Deila struggled to impart authority in the league campaign, Celtic have already opened up a 10 point advantage over Aberdeen.
"We should have 10 [wins] out of 10.We put in a good performance that day, didn't take our chances and, of course, something like that can happen. Inverness didn't start so well in the season, their football was a little but nervous and they played more direct then, but I saw on the day that they had some good players with good quality. Inverness got the result in the end, but I'm really happy with how the players are improving,” said Rodgers.
