Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon believes that manager Brendan Rodgers will be able to keep the Scottish champions in-form for their busy fixture schedule this month, according to a report on the Daily Record.
Celtic face German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich twice in quick succession in the UEFA Champions League group stage and also a Betfred Cup semi-final against Hibernian.
The list of crucial games for Rodgers’ side continues as they face a top of the table clash with Aberdeen, which is sandwiched in-between the Bayern Munich games.
The Celtic squad are slowly arriving back to Scotland to join back up with the squad to prepare for seven matches in 21 days following a testing international period for majority of the players.
No player in the squad had to go futher than Tom Rogic, who was on the opposite side of the earth with Australia for a home and away double-header against Syria.
However, Rodgers has managed to rotate his squad successfully before and Gordon believes he will manage to do it once again.
“We’ll have to recover and be prepared for an awful lot of matches over the next period. Of course, it is tiring for the boys who are playing at international level, with European club football and also domestic football,” said Gordon.
“But it’s up to the manager to rotate the squad and give people rests when he can and when he feels that it is the right time, while still being able to maintain the winning record. It’s a juggling act for him, but we have good players,” he continued.
