Brendan Rodgers to SNUB Rangers game that could see Celtic crowned champions as he reveals Tuesday TV plan

Brendan Rodgers will SNUB the Rangers game against Dundee at Ibrox that could see his Celtic side crowned Scottish Premiership champions.

The Light Blues are in action following their weekend derby defeat to the Hoops at Parkhead and if they slip up against the Dark Blues then it will see Rodgers make a title-winning return north of the border.

However, the 51-year-old won’t even tune in to the live Sky Sports action from Govan with Rodgers instead opting to watch the man he replaced in the Celtic hotseat, Ange Postecoglou, try to put a dent in Manchester City’s English Premier League title race. If Rangers do get the victory against the Taysiders then Celtic head down the M77 on Wednesday night to face Kilmarnock at Rugby Park where they will require just a point to win the title - with St Mirren at Parkhead on Saturday the final league game.

Asked if he’ll watch Rangers’ clash at home to Dundee, the Irishman said: “No, I’ll watch Tottenham-Man City. And obviously once we’ve finished our work here I’ll watch probably that game. Our only focus is on ourselves and preparing for the game tomorrow and outwith that we can’t control anything else. For me it doesn’t really matter. Some people prefer to win it there then you have the celebration. For me it’s just about collating the points over the season and when it’s mathematically rubber stamped you take take that.

"I said after the game at the weekend that we're nearly there but we have to keep pushing so we recover well from the aftermath of the game at the weekend and our focus is very much on finishing the job as early as we can. Nothing's won. We took a giant step at the weekend and coming away from the game and looking at the actual performance, the guys did incredibly well considering the circumstances in the build up to the game and the closest (title race) for so many years.

"But it's what they're very good at - they're very grounded and humble. So it was a case of coming back and reviewing the game and then getting prepared for Wednesday night. You do your own preparation because you can't control anything outwith that. Our focus and control is on what we can do against Kilmarnock. The mindset is key. We have three games left and want to perform well so we look to manage the squad and look to be as fit and fresh as we can be.

"We have a lot of work to do and over the three games have two trophies to clinch. That's in our mind. But there have been so many challenges over the course of this season. We could stand and talk for hours on it. But ultimately it's about getting to this business end of the season and being in a really good place and that's where we are.

"When you work for Celtic and especially as manager and players your job is to serve the club and supporters and there's no better way to serve them than to get a win over your rivals and we seen that at the weekend. The energy in the stadium was absolutely amazing and that connection they have got us over the line. And that is the strength of Celtic - when they come together and give us the support we do."
