After going 61 matches without domestic defeat, Celtic target new record

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has set his sights on helping Celtic achieve a new record after their 3-0 win at Aberdeen. The Scottish Premiership champions moved three points clear at the top after stretching their run to 61 matches without defeat in domestic competition.
The Hoops moved to within 90 minutes of matching their own British unbeaten record of 62 games from Willie Maley's side of 100 years ago, which can be achieved against Kilmarnock at home on Saturday.
Rodgers said: “I wasn’t aware of that. We've always focused. The only time this was mentioned was when the record was 26 and there was a bit at 23, 24 and could we beat it? Once we got over the line we focused on the next game. To have no complacency and to win. That's what they've done. It's an incredible credit to the players and staff for the mentality to work like that. We come back in the early hours from games and they want to work the next day. I give them a free day but they come in. It tells you about the winning mentality and how hard they're working.”
