Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed he won't watch Rangers against Dundee.

That's because he'll be busy celebrating St Patrick's Day!

The Parkhead manager explained he would have no interest in Scottish Premiership action on Sunday and would instead focus on the "celebration of the Irish community worldwide".

Celtic leapfrogged Rangers at the Scottish Premiership summit with a 3-1 win over St Johnstone on Saturday. But Philippe Clement's men could regain the lead at Dens Park.

Quizzed on whether he'd keep tabs on the match in Dundee, Rodgers told Sky Sports: "Well, it's St Patrick's Day tomorrow so I'll be celebrating St Patrick's Day.

"There'll be a celebration of the Irish community worldwide.

"I won't have any interest in any results.

"We've done our job today and that's all we can do and we'll have a good day tomorrow."

On victory over St Johnstone, Rodgers said: “I thought from the start of the game there was a great feeling in the stadium and from the crowd.

“The players started the game well and I thought overall it was a very good performance.

“The only downside was when I made all the changes our pressing went a little bit passive and that gave them a little bit more time on the ball than we would have wanted.”

And touching on the progress made by January signing Nicolas Kuhn, Rodgers added: “I think you are starting to see a little bit of why we brought him here. He’s very quick.

“It was just hard for him when he came in, struggling with his teeth and everything medically. But he has shown now that he has his strength back up and he’s training really well.

“He obviously puts in a great cross for the first goal and you see his speed for the second one.

“We always want our wingers to get in the box. He got himself in there and scored a fantastic goal.”
