We can never be stale, insists Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers

The Celtic manager hopes to utilise Boyata - who has been out with a knee injury since July - in the Betfred Cup quarter-final with Dundee at Dens Park and feels that the centre-back is a key figure for the future. "It was nice to see him back as he is a big presence in the team".

"What is important is noting the flexibility of the players".

"It can never be stale".

"Not only does he make strong challenges, he gets the ball down and passes it. Let's see what Dundee brings".

Brendan Rodgers has been thrilled by the development of resurgent Celtic winger James Forres in the last few months.

Juggling the demands of defending the three Scottish honours as well as attempting to gain a toehold in the Champions League group stage, Brendan Rodgers made six changes to the side who cruised to a 4-0 home league victory over Ross County at the weekend.

And this is certainly in stark contrast to Rodgers' message from June a year ago. Since the turn of the year and the trip to Dubai he has been brilliant with me.

"I said to the players we learn from it, remain positive and press the reset button and go again". It's always a mark of the good side to respond, we scored four goals and kept a clean sheet.

"I'm always cautious of that".

"With young players, one, they have to earn it and, two, you don't go overboard with them because they have played a couple of good games".

Rodgers has recently tied down Stuart Armstrong, Scott Brown, Jozo Simunovic and Callum McGregor to longer contracts and it's his intention that Boyata will now follow suit. I say to them here that it's very easy to walk around with the Louis Vuitton soap bag.
