Hunger key for Celtic

Brendan Rodgers has praised the attitude of his Celtic squad as they stand on the verge of an historic double-treble in Saturday's Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park.

The Hoops are 90 minutes away from becoming the first Scottish club in history to secure back-to-back domestic clean sweeps.

After going unbeaten domestically throughout the whole of the 2016/17 season, Rodgers feels Celtic have really shown a determination to succeed this season.

The quality of football on show hasn't always been of the same standard but the Parkhead boss insists the attitude has always been perfect.

"The key thing was to try and make sure that the players came back with that hunger to still win titles," he said.

"When you win the treble, like we did last year, you're asking players to press that 10, 15 metres on the pitch and sometimes when you win, you can go a bit soft and you don't quite do that.

"But these players have given absolutely everything. This is our 61st competitive game on Saturday and every game they've given their best shot.

"They had the right intent and we now have the chance to create more history."

Rodgers on Thursday tied up a deal that keeps Australian midfielder Tom Rogic, who scored the winner against Aberdeen in last year's cup final, at the club for another five years.

Celtic are 7/1 to beat Motherwell 3-0 in the Scottish Cup final. The Steelmen are 10/1 to win the game while Rogic is 13/10 to score a goal in the 90 minutes.
