Celtic Treble Winners -Lets Look Back !

img_2071

When you look back on the 2016-17 season it was a  campaign full of successes from the appointment of Brendan Rodgers to the Scottish cup final win last month in the post I’m going to try and go back and cover the main points of a fine season and highlight why the 2016-17 season goes down as one of the finest in the clubs 129 year history ….

Brendan Rodgers signs on as the new Celtic manager ..

13000 Celtic fans turned up to see Celtic unveil Ronnie Deilas successor at the beginning of the 2016-17 season the northern Irishman a lifelong Celtic fan had finally arrived in his dream job, spells at Swansea and Liverpool seemed like the stepping stones to finally get him to paradise ..

Theirs not many managers can say that they managed the 2 biggest clubs in the country in their career but Rodgers has and was unlucky to miss out on the premiership title in England a few years back with Liverpool , but now that’s all history because he has achieved what only a few managers had before him a treble in his first season …here in Scotland..

If you add to that the fact this was achieved without losing a domestic game the entire campaign, it elevates what the club have actually done this year to heights I can’t see being achieved again for a very long time , the style of football the manager has employed at the club with the players he’s acquired has been a perfect fit, the fans love the attacking direct approach and the slick passing and counterattacking style of the team ….

The players have excelled this campaign from guys who were already their to the new arrivals,it’s truly a great time to be a fan of Celtic , and under Brendan Rodgers in a few short weeks it will all start again with Europe the target , who knows what the new season holds but i will bet it’s going to be exciting all over again HH…

The Players 

The group of players at the club just now are feeling the benefits of having such a good coach in charge ,so many of the players Brendan Rodgers inherited from Ronnie Deila had a wonderful season , Stuart Armstrong and James Forrest to name 2 would be a good example, add to that with the likes of loanee Patrick Roberts from Man City and Rodgers 2 main signings Scott Sinclair and Moussa Dembelle it’s not hard to see why Celtic have wiped the floor with teams this season, theirs also the ever developing keiran Teirney as well and powerhouse tom rogic ,and when you have a committed captain of over 10 yrs Scott Brown who has been playing some brilliant football all season the odds begin to stack up in Celtics favor …

The seasons over but not for long and the bhoys will be back in 4 short weeks to begin champions league qualifiers, I’ve just watched Leigh Griffiths score 2 cracking free kicks for Scotland against England tonight and he’s another important figure in Celtics success this season …..
