Celtic Still Looking Good Domestically But Can They Make Their Mark In Europe?

Celtic under former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers are looking like they are very much on their way to repeating the three trophies they won in the 2016-17 season when they won the Scottish League Cup, the Scottish Cup and the Scottish League Championship.

Despite a spirited challenge from a rapidly improving Rangers side and another decent season from Aberdeen, Celtic are going to win yet another Scottish title after pretty much sealing it after they beat Rangers in the League at Ibrox.

Rangers were also the opposition in the recent Scottish Cup semi-final where the Hoops also came out on top to secure the right to play Motherwell in the final at Hampden Park on the 19th of May 2018.

Celtic are heavily favoured to complete their 2nd treble in a row and it will take a strong performance from Motherwell to deny them.

It’s in Europe however, where Rodgers’ men will be looking to make their mark next campaign after this year they failed to advance past the group phase of the Champions League and then got knocked out of the Europa League over 2 legs by an impressive Zenit St Petersburg side as they managed to scrape into Europe’s 2nd tier competition.

Whether Rodgers will be given the resources in the transfer market to add more quality to his squad remains to be seen but the Northern Irishman has done very little wrong in his tenure at Celtic Park so far so you would expect him to start improving his team’s results in Europe based upon the astute additions he has made so far as well as building the winning mentality at the club.
