Celtic news: Patrick Roberts sings Brendan Rodgers praises after breaking record
Patrick Roberts is a big fan of Brendan Rodgers

The Hoops broke a 100-year-old British record after their win over St Johnstone after going 63 domestic games unbeaten.

Rodgers has yet to lose a game in the league since taking over last year and Roberts has commended his boss.

Roberts re-signed on loan from Manchester City after an initial 18-month loan that saw him become a fan favourite.

He joins Scott Sinclair and Moussa Dembele in a lethal attack that no Scottish Premiership team has been able to live with.

But the 20-year-old has deflected all the praise his manager's way.

He said: "Our willingness to win every game and to not lose has probably got us this far, and the manager is instilling that in us from the get-go.

"From last season and this we've had the same mentality and focus all year round, and that in itself is why we've been so successful."

Roberts compared his current manager to his parent club's Pep Guardiola, who is storming the Premier League at the moment.

City are also unbeaten in the league at the moment following their 3-1 win over Arsenal on Sunday.

He said: "In the Premier League, Guardiola is playing the football he's played at Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

"The gaffer here is similar, he tries to play football at every opportunity, even when we're under pressure, and he's instilled that in every player.

"We're always getting better at it and you see in the Bayern game we controlled the game at times and that's down to the manager."
