Boss Brendan Rodgers claims "ignorance" and "lack of knowledge" underpinned the criticism of Celtic and Scottish football by radio presenter Jason Cundy.

After Celtic's 4-0 win at bottom side Inverness on Wednesday - which took them 27 points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership - the former Chelsea defender described the standard in the top flight in Scotland as "embarrassing".

Cundy also claimed the Hoops would struggle to beat Stoke City if they were in the Premier League while questioning the popularity of the Glasgow club in terms of supporters.

However, former Liverpool manager Rodgers said: "It is ignorance really, with all due respect. It's a lack of knowledge of football.

"The footballing world is more than the Premier League. But if your eyes are only on one league then of course you tend to ignore what is happening around that. He is a good boy Jason, I know him well but I probably understand what he is trying to do with his comments."
