We showed courage - Rodgers

Manager Brendan Rodgers said Celtic showed their courage during the latest 3-1 victory at Aberdeen.

The champions moved onto a century of points for the season with Dedryck Boyata, Stuart Armstrong and Leigh Griffiths each finding the net inside the opening eleven minutes - and Jonny Hayes replying.

"It wasn't a pretty game but it showed we had the courage to stand up to it and get the result," Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "We showed a different side of our game tonight.

"It was an outstanding defensive performance, not one of our better football performances, but sometimes it is very difficult to do that, when a team is constantly going long with it," he added. "It's a different way totally from how we will play the game but it's a game we have to play against and defend."
