Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has hailed his side after they beat Aberdeen on Friday to rack up 100 points for the season so far.

Goals from Dedyrck Boyata, Stuart Armstrong and Leigh Griffiths gave the champions a 3-1 win over the Dons at Pittodrie.

Speaking to the club's official website after his side's 32nd win in the league, Rodgers said: "It’s an incredible achievement, our target going into the game tonight was could we get 100 points and could we get 100 goals, so when the players started that way in that first 15 minutes, I thought we might get the four goals but we just fell short of that.

“One of our targets in pre-season was to get 100-plus goals, so hopefully we can achieve that in our next two games, but to get to 100 points with two games to go really shows our level, our quality and, as much as anything, the focus of the team.

“I think people are waiting for the game we go soft and lose our focus but that’s not been the case. We are preparing every single day to win every single game, to train the best we can and win. The players are doing it really well,” he added. 

Celtic travel to Partick Thistle on Thursday as they look to maintain their unbeaten domestic season.
