Norwich City: Squad numbers confirmed ahead of 2023/24 season | The Pink UnWhen Celtic visits Aberdeen on Saturday afternoon, manager Brendan Rodgers hopes to temporarily put his team ahead of Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership by 11 points.

Heading into Saturday’s games, the Hoops are currently five points ahead of their local rivals, the Rangers. However, even though Rangers have a game in hand, Rodgers will be instilling in his team the belief that they cannot afford to make a mistake as the title race moves into the final third of the season.

Aberdeen will be an interesting challenge. After some disappointing performances, they fired Barry Robson in the middle of the week. The Dons will be led by an interim coaching staff at Pittodrie, though Robson’s departure may make room for a new management.

Hart is Brendan Rodgers’ first choice, therefore his decision to stay at Celtic throughout the transfer window won’t have much of an impact.
Unsurprisingly, Brendan Rodgers had some thoughts on the possibility of introducing blue cards into Scottish football.

However, he also had a more important match to attend on Sunday, the Scottish Cup, at St Mirren. After defeating Ross County, Celtic’s supporters jeered them off, and they dropped points at Aberdeen. They didn’t play very well against Hibs during the week, but they still prevailed, which may give them more confidence.

During his news conference today, Rodgers brought up the topic of that as he gave a preview of what he believes would be a very difficult test for his team before traveling to play the Buddies.
