Rodgers on Hoops defeat


Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers said his side paid the price for being blunt in attack in their defeat to Kilmarnock.

The Hoops suffered their second domestic defeat of the season when they crashed 1-0 at Rugby Park courtesy of a Youssouf Mulumbu goal.

Celtic were hampered by injuries to Dedryck Boyata and Kristoffer Ajer but Rodgers says that was not to blame.

“We could’ve played here until midnight and not scored. We weren’t really threatening,” he told reporters.

“We were disappointing. Defensively, we were a bit passive at times, even though we didn’t have so much defending to do.

“We can blame injuries, we can look at the pitch and all sorts where it’s very difficult to play, but the bottom line is we weren’t so good.

“Very disappointing result.”
