Brendan Rodgers claims Celtic would finish in Premier League top six


BRENDAN Rodgers believes his Celtic would finish in the top six if they were playing in the Premier League.

Celtic were crowned Scottish Premiership champions for a sixth consecutive season as Scott Sinclair’s hat-trick inspired a 5-0 demolition of Hearts on Sunday.

Rodgers’ team, now 25 points clear of second-placed Aberdeen, set a new Scottish top-flight record as the earliest ever champions after wrapping up first place with eight games still to play.

“Could we play in the Premier League? Yes, we could,” the former Liverpool and Swansea boss told Sky Sports.

“I have absolutely no doubt about it because we’ve got the Celtic factor. We have 60,000 every other week. Without the money alone, this team would compete in the Premier League.
