Celtic not looking beyond Dundee – Brendan Rodgers

Rodgers senses his team are embracing the pressure involved in chasing the double.

“That is the expectation,” he said. “We are not here on holiday. We are here to win and we are here to win in the best fashion we possibly can.

“That’s the excitement around it. That everything is in our hands to achieve what we want to achieve.”

Dundee did Celtic a favour in their previous match when they held Rangers to a goalless draw last week and Rodgers is expecting a tough test.

“We’ve played very well against them this season, but Tony and the staff have done a brilliant job,” Rodgers added. “There will be other teams who other people may feel have better squads than Dundee, but the job Tony’s done there in his first season up in the Premiership as been absolutely brilliant.

“We go there with no level of complacency, only respect for a team that has done very well. We have to be at the top of our game to get the result.”
