If you haven’t seen it yet, a terrific video has been doing the rounds of Brendan Rodgers being patched by Craig Cathcart of Watford.
The incident itself came at full-time yesterday. Rodgers slipped to defeat in his first game back in the Premier League. A last-minute Andre Gray goal secured three points for Watford at home to Leicester.
The full-time celebrations were as predicted. Rodgers went around shaking everybody’s hands that he could. But there was one player who certainly wasn’t having it in Cathcart. You can view the video below.

Watford seemed to relish Celtic connection yesterday
There was certainly a desire from Watford to connect with the Celtic fans yesterday. At full-time, the DJ played out Depeche Mode’s I Just Can’t Get Enough – a popular song choice for the Celtic support.
The official Watford Twitter account also acknowledged the support they had from up north yesterday. It was certainly a connection that Watford were keen to embrace.
In truth, it was a near-perfect weekend for the Celtic support. After the Hoops secured progression to the Scottish Cup semi-finals, Leicester slipped under Rodgers. Rangers were then so close to falling out of the Scottish Cup as they secured a replay in fortunate fashion up at Aberdeen.
Finally, it looks like the club’s heading on the right track. Celtic have struggled for long spells this season to get some consistency under their belt. But now, the Hoops have managed 11 consecutive wins on the bounce domestically. Even after the departure of Rodgers, Celtic are still just picking up where they left off before his leave.
You can bet the supporters will be keeping their eyes on Rodgers this season. So many fans aren’t wishing him the best given the manner of his move.
But the Hoops will kick on regardless. At the moment, they’re eight points clear at the top of the Premiership. The Hoops have just 10 games remaining in the league campaign. Therefore the club can now see title number eight in sight.
Rodgers could’ve been a massive part of that. But, instead, he’s swapped iconic status for mid-table mediocrity.
