I’m in the habit of reading a Dickens novel in the weeks leading up to Christmas. This year it’s Nicholas Nickleby, last year it was Bleak House, and the year before that Our Mutual Friend. My preference is for the books set wholly or partly in London: there’s something about this time of year that makes me want to […]

BRENDAN RODGERS has urged his shattered Celtic stars to give him one final push in 2018. The Hoops play their 67th game of the year when they host Motherwell. Rodgers wants one final push from his shattered Celtic stars Rodgers and Co then face Dundee, Aberdeen and Rangers before the break — and Rodgers wants a strong finish from his troops. He said: “It’s an important period now. We’ll get a break after that, which the players clearly need. “We’ll be at the top, or somewhere about it, by the turn of the year. We know we’ll get stronger. We know we’ll get better. “We’ll push on into the second half of the season really motivated. We’re getting towards the end of another great year. ‘ECLIPSED BY RANGERS’ Spanish paper says Celtic have been overshadowed by Rangers this season  “We’ve won a cup already, are into the last 32 of the Europa League and in the league everything is in our hands. “So I can’t complain. We want to be better, of course. We can be better. “But we need to go into our next two home games, starting with Motherwell, looking to get maximum points. “The players have been amazing for me. Now we have to kick on and put that hunger into action.” Hibs defeated Celtic 2-0 at Easter Road on Sunday Celtic are currently third in the Premiership behind Rangers and Kilmarnock with a game in hand. But Rodgers insists his only focus is on the Hoops’ fortunes and claims they can’t afford to think about their rivals. He added: “You look at the league and you see it’s tight, which I’ve always said is good. “We always look at our own game because what Rangers do, or Kilmarnock or any of the teams, is irrelevant to us. “We have to do our own job and play to our own standards. “It’s tighter this year. But like I say we’re in a very good position and if we can take that into the second part of the season I’ll be very happy.” Celtic lost 2-0 to Hibs on Sunday and Rodgers admits his side deserved what they got. He said: “My reflections aren’t any different. There is always disappointment when you lose a game. “We didn’t play well and were disappointed. It was the first game that we conceded a goal in the first half this season domestically, so that tells you why I was so shocked at conceding so early.

We normally start really brightly and with a tempo. “But the first goal put us on the back foot and, of course, it gives Hibs a bit of oxygen and a surge of adrenalin. “We didn’t play well enough. That’s the reality. “From time to time there will be variables that go against us — injuries, things that will happen in the game, and maybe not quite being at our level.” Keep up to date with ALL the latest news and transfers from Scottish football plus fixtures, results and live match commentary  [bc_video video_id=”5979204137001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Celtic fans pay tribute to striker Leigh Griffiths with 9th minute applause during clash with Salzburg”]

SCOTT McKENNA is determined to prove he has learnt his lesson after Kenny Miller took him to school last term. The Aberdeen stopper’s form has been so impressive that Celtic and Aston Villa have had big-money bids knocked back.​ Scott McKenna has been watched by a host of clubs The 22-year-old has also captained Scotland after becoming a fixture in Alex McLeish’s team.​ However, he still has nightmares about the way Miller took him on a tour of Ibrox during Rangers’ 3-0 win last November.​ Now McKenna is desperate to show he can stop Miller from scoring in a sixth successive game for Dundee tonight.​ He recalled: “Kenny dragged me all over Ibrox that night. ​ Kenny Miller is going for his sixth goal in as many matches “That was a big learning curve for me as Carlos Pena played behind him and Miller dragged me everywhere out of position. “Rangers were by far the better team but I’ve learned from that.​ “He has hit a good bit of form of late, scoring seven in his last five games. ​ “In terms of movement and knowledge, Kenny is one of the toughest I’ve faced.​ Kenny Miller celebrates after netting for Dundee “I’ve heard from a lot of people that he is a great professional and you can see that because to be playing at this level at 38 it is a credit to him. ​ “He is a difficult opponent and we know we will have our hands full, but you expect someone with his experience to give you problems. ​ “It will just be up to me to try to nullify that threat.”​ Aberdeen have had Dundee’s number — going 19 league games unbeaten against them.​ DONS DEALS McInnes wants contract answers from Shinnie and Mackay-Steven by January The Dons have actually won ten in a row and McKenna recognises the incentive to make it 11. He said: “We’re up to fourth now and if we beat Dundee we’ll be just a point behind Rangers and Kilmarnock.​ “It is looking a lot better for us right now but we need to carry on winning and maintaining that momentum for the matches before the winter break.​ Visits from Hearts and Celtic, then a trip to Livingston, round off their 2018 fixtures. Scott McKenna made his Scotland debut this year McKenna added: “We are scoring a lot more goals, which is pleasing for everyone, but at times we have been a bit slack at the back.​ “Luckily, the boys at the top end of the pitch have been bailing us out. “If we can go on and win three, four or five in a row, the attention will be back on us again.​ Aberdeen are still without the recovering Gary Mackay-Steven.
