Rodgers: Celtic will be Better in 2018 – Rock Sport

Manager Brendan Rodgers says Celtic will return from the winter break “fresher and better” after ending 2017 with a 0-0 draw with Rangers.

Rodgers hinted at new arrivals and players departing during the January transfer window.

But he insists there have been no offers for his players.

“There’s no doubt getting to this point of the season, we need that recovery to get that freshness back into the legs again,” Rodgers told reporters after the Old Firm derby.
“We’ll get away, we’ll recover now, we’ll work very, very hard when we get away and we’ll be back for the second part of the season fresher and better.”

Asked if there would be new arrivals in the coming weeks, Rodgers replied: “I suspect so. There are probably some players that’ll go out, that’ll want to play games and obviously of course January’s a month where you like to strengthen as well so I’m sure there’ll be something done.”

Moussa Dembele has been linked with a move to Brighton and Hove Albion and came off during the second half of Saturday’s Old Firm derby.
