Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers Claims he was embarrassed by Hearts pitch

Celtic manager Rodgers claims he was embarrassed by Hearts ' pitch as he slammed the state of the Tynecastle turf. Celtic came from behind to win 3-1 in Edinburgh but the Hoops boss was confuse that his side were forced to adapt their game to deal with the conditions. Rodgers says the length of the grass impacted both teams but praised his players for stepping up to avenge a 4-0 drubbing on the same ground in December.
He told Sport reporter: "We couldn't play our normal game today. The pitch, I'm actually a little embarrassed with to be honest, for Scottish football and the standards you're trying to create throughout the country.
The pitch was so long the players couldn't pass on it, and that's both sides. Guys like Steven Naismith, being in the Premier League all their days, you couldn't pass the ball.
But you've got to find a way to win and the players did that. I thought after the first 10-15 minutes, where the guys were having to get used to playing a different game, it was a great response to going behind."
