Rodgers: Unbeaten season would be remarkable achievement
Celtic will be Premiership invincibles if they avoid defeat against Hearts.
Brendan Rodgers believes his Celtic team would have achieved something remarkable if they could complete the Premiership season without a single defeat.
Celtic play Hearts in their final Premiership fixture of the season and if they can draw or win on home turf then they'll be the first team to go undefeated in the Scottish top flight since 1899.
Rodgers praised his squad for their efforts and achievements so far and said that becoming "invincibles" would be another high point in a season that has already seen them win two trophies and could yet deliver a domestic treble.
"I think it's an incredible achievement by the team," the Celtic manager said. "This journey started back in June last year and to arrive at this point with 33 wins and four draws and an opportunity on Sunday in front of a packed out Celtic Park to go through and win the game... it would be a remarkable achievement.
"Whatever era it is, whatever league, it's all relative and for us it's been a brilliant team performance up until now. Everyone's played their part, some more so than others, but it's been a real collective effort.
"The supporters have played a huge part in that also. The support we get wherever we go is absolutely incredible.
"It's been a real unified effort by everyone and hopefully we can do that and finish it off at the weekend."
Rodgers wasn't taking anything for granted ahead of Sunday's match but said that adding to the impressive goal and points tally was extra motivation.
"We've still got to do the job and we're very determined to do that," he said.
"[Against Partick Thistle] we reached a real high standard and equalled the record amount of wins in the league so we'll try and beat that and reach 34.
"The number of goals is 105 so can we beat that?
"So there's plenty to play for."
