Rodgers on staying calm, Idah's ability and Easter Road record

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has been speaking to the media ahead of his side's trip to Hibs on Wednesday evening.

Here are the key points from his media conference...

  • Argues that they are not many teams in Europe where "you win four points out of six and you're in crisis mode". The message is to "stay calm" and encourages players to embrace the pressure that comes at Celtic.

  • He never expected his second stint in Glasgow to be the same "magic carpet ride" as his first spell, but he relishes that challenge.

  • Adam Idah has "every tool to play at the very highest level" and Rodgers is "excited" to have him with the club.

  • Jokes "it might just be me" regarding his winless record at Easter Road, though Hibs are a "top team".

  • On Neil Warnock's arrival in Scottish football, he tells journalists "he'll be good for you guys". Says Warnock "will see" what the pitches, media and refereeing is like north of the border.

  • No changes on the injury front, but "great" to have Daizen Maeda back from injury front. Greg Taylor will be assessed ahead of the weekend.
