Everything that Brendan Rodgers said to Celtic TV after the 3-1 Scottish Premiership win over Kilmarnock 

The result does not really reflect the performance in total but is that as fluid a display as you have seen in the attacking third from your team so far this season?

Yes. We are getting better each game and I thought the players were excellent. The scoreline did not show the quality in the final third that we had. I was really pleased as we were really creative and we speeded up our game in the right moments. It was a combination of that little finishing touch and their keeper made some fantastic saves and it could have been one or two more goals but overall I was really pleased.

As a manager you can see the fruits of what goes on in the training ground through that display and you can see someone like Reo Hatate clicking into gear. How did you rate his performance?

Reo needed a performance like that. With him it is all about intensity and workrate. When he works to that level and intensity he is a fantastic player. When he is slow and his pressing is slow he does not have the same dynamism. He was outstanding today and he scored a great goal and he could have had at least one more. He was very creative and his pressing was good and his quality was good and he was outstanding.

It was a thoroughly deserved victory, Greg Taylor had a complaint in the build up to the Kilmarnock goal and VAR played a part in quite a bit of the game today. Are you satisfied that overall the reflection and the decisions were fair?

No. I think Kilmarnock's goal is clear when you see it. I think the referee needs a bit of help as he didn't quite see it and his back was to the play by the time he has swivelled around on it.  He has got a fourth official and someone on VAR who is seeing that. When Greg moves the guy has contact with him all the way until he throws him to the floor. It is a clear free-kick. The play goes on and it goes into the area where he is out of position. We were disappointed with that decision.

How pleased were you with the mentality shown by the squad coming off a sore defeat in midweek but they were impressive with how they responded?

The mental strength of the team is very good. We have had a run of tough games where we have had two Champions League games and shown that we are close to being a really good side at that level and competitive at that level. You still have to come off the back of that disappointment and show your competitive spirit and the players were very good. There are areas we can improve on like making better decisions in the final third in order to score more goals as we have to see those passes but that apart it was a very good performance.
