Manager Brendan Rodgers said it was another excellent performance against Dundee on Boxing Day.

The visitors prevailed at Dens Park courtesy of a couple of first-half goals from James Forrest and Leigh Griffiths.

“It was about the hunger to win the game and I think that was pretty clear how we started the game,” Rodgers told BBC Scotland. “We scored a very good goal. Great move. Great passing.

“Our possession was really good and we opened them up in numbers and finished off really well,” he continued. “And the second one was a great demonstration of that hunger.”

Meanwhile, the Hoops’ medical team were hoping that winger Jonny Hayes had suffered only bruising to his shin ahead of having an X-ray.

“He’ll go for an X-ray but hopefully he’ll be OK,” Rodgers added. “The medical team are saying it might only be bruising on the shin, which is hopefully the case, but we will see what the X-ray says.”
