Celtic will host a delegation from their Austrian feeder side Admira Wacker next week as they continue to expand their links with the club.

The Scottish champions have established a partnership with the Modling side, who have been Austrian champions nine times but are currently sitting in mid-table in the second tier of the Austrian Bundesliga.

Celtic have already loaned Scotland Under 21s international defender Matthew Anderson and goalkeeper Tobi Oluwayemi to them this season.

And the club will welcome them across to Glasgow where they will be guests for the Champions League clash with Feyenoord next week.

Admira Wacker manager Thomas Pratl said: "Our partnership with Celtic is going very well.

"In fact, myself and two others are going to Scotland next week to intensify our dialogue with the club and also attend the Champions League match against Feyenoord in the stadium."

Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers insists he warned his players to have the correct intensity and physicality levels ahead of Celtic’s trip to St Johnstone.

So, when he didn’t see that during the first-half showing at McDiarmid Park on Sunday, the Irishman had no option but to give them a verbal kick up the backside.

Post-match, Rodgers revealed it was the angriest he’s ever been at half time in a game. He branded his players ‘soft’ at St Johnstone’s opener, and levelled the criticism that too many of them were going through the motions.

They delivered the required reaction that he was looking for as Callum McGregor, Matt O’Riley and James Forrest stepped up with the goals to secure a 3-1 comeback victory.

But Rodgers maintains he had to dig his players out for falling way short of the standards he expected.

“Obviously, it’s a challenge when teams are sat in deep and you’re having to break them down,” the 50-year-old said. “But the aspects that do that - as you saw in the second half - is the speed and the tempo of the game."
