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."

Rodgers impressed with depth

Manager Brendan Rodgers said the latest victory against Dundee in the Scottish League Cup served to highlight the depth of his available squad.

Dundee 0 Celtic 4

Holders Celtic moved into the Scottish League Cup semi-finals with a 4-0 victory against Dundee at Dens Park.

The always lively Scott Sinclair's penalty earned them a first-half lead improved by James Forrest just prior to the break.

However, the Hoops were forced to wait until very late in the contest before substitute Callum McGregor and Forrest (again) added further goals.

Defender Dedryck Boyata was passed fit to play following a knee injury that had ruled him out so far
