Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is refusing to believe victory at Aberdeen on Saturday will see the race for the Scottish Premiership title all-but over. Pink Saints Jerseys . The Hoops head to Pittodrie with a seven-point cushion - and a game in hand - over their closest rivals following their 4-0 victory over Ross County on Wednesday evening.The previous night saw the Dons slip to a shock 1-0 defeat against Hamilton at New Douglas Park but Rodgers, who made eight changes for the trip to Dingwall, is taking nothing for granted ahead of the Sky Live showdown. Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports News HQ, the Northern Irishman said: Irrespective of the result on Saturday there is still a long way to go in the season. Brendan Rodgers says there is a long way to go no matter what the result at Aberdeen We have made a terrific start playing at a really high level with a tempo to our game. We have players who are improving all the time and hopefully the teams performance will improve over the course of the season.Others may be looking at it (being all over) but we dont. For me it is always about the next game coming up and can we take the confidence of our start into that game. The next game now is Aberdeen. We know it will be tough for us but we expect that and it is one we are looking forward to.And Rodgers says he had no hesitation in making wholesale changes to his side for the midweek trip to Dingwall, insisting he has the utmost confidence in any player he drafts into his squad. Patrick Roberts scores the opener against Ross County after being recalled to the starting XI Following the Betfred Cup semi-final victory over Rangers at Hampden last Sunday, Rodgers chose to rest a number of first-team players including Tom Rogic, Kieran Tierney, Jozo Simunovic and Scott Brown, whose wife gave birth to his third son earlier in the day. Celtic captain Scott Brown explains who deserves the credit for the clubs strong start I just felt with the games we had leading up to last night, plus the next three games after that, that it would put too much of a demand on the same players playing in those games, he said.Especially when I have very good players who havent been playing. It also gave me a chance to look at them away from home, away from the comfort of Celtic Park with 60,000 fans behind them. Roberts (second left) celebrates with Liam Henderson, Ryan Christie and Leigh Griffiths Could they cope, could they play with that intensity and pressure and they responded very, very well and it was pleasing from that respect.Leigh Griffiths and Patrick Roberts were two of the changes against County and Rodgers admits both enhanced their chances of a return to first-team football following spells out through injury.Roberts, on loan from Manchester City until the end of the season, opened the scoring and had a hand in the other three goals, while Griffiths was a constant threat to the home defence for most of the evening. Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths vying for starting berth up front against Aberdeen Asked if there is a danger of Griffiths trying too hard to score and force his way back into the side, Rodgers added: No, he doesnt have to do that and I have said that to him.He started the season brilliantly before he got injured and came out of the team. Similar to Patrick Roberts really. Both outstanding players who were in the starting XI at the beginning of the season, but who both got injured and were out for a period of time. Aberdeen vs Celtic October 29, 2016, 11:30am Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass But the two players who have come in have really taken their opportunity. James Forrest and Moussa Dembele have come in and done really well but I am well aware of the qualities of the other two.Patrick scored one last night and was involved in the other three and he is an outstanding talent, a great player to have whether he starts or comes off the bench and Leigh is a top class striker who, if he gets opportunities will score. He has just got to keep fighting, keep preparing and be ready when called upon.  You can watch Premier League football, plus Englands tour of Bangladesh and the Mexican Grand Prix on Sky Sports.

Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid. Womens Saints Jerseys . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. .S. Open champion Justin Rose birdied the first hole with a blind shot he hit to a foot of the pin, and he stayed in front Tuesday until he completed a 4-under 67 for a two-shot lead over Jason Dufner in PGA Grand Slam of Golf. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Ellen Hoog updated her best memory in field hockey.At the 2012 London Games, Hoog scored the winning shootout goal for the Netherlands against New Zealand in the semifinals, en route to their second straight Olympic gold medal.She was even more dramatic on Wednesday, in the semifinals again in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. The Dutch and Germany finished regulation at 1-1, and their shootout at 2-2. Hoog had been the first Dutchwoman to miss, her shot stopped by the underside of goalkeeper Kristina Reynolds right boot.The shootout went to sudden death, and the tension was so much that Netherlands coach Alyson Annan-Thate was crouching on the turf, barely able to watch. The first shooters from each team scored. Then Joyce Sombroek, the worlds best goalie, blocked and saved for the Netherlands, giving Hogg, next up, the chance to be the hero again. She wrong-footed Reynolds, and slammed in a reverse stick shot, just like she did at the London Games. After that, it was a blur.I had some doubts because I missed the first one, but I trust in my own shootouts, so I thought, `Well, Im not going to miss it twice, Hoog said. But after I scored it, I dont know what was going on. The most feeling I think is relief. Just reliief that we won. Throwback Saints Jerseys. The Netherlands, the biggest force in womens hockey, will play for an unprecedented third straight gold against first-time finalist Britain on Friday.Maybe it sounds arrogant, Hoog said, but we have done it before, so we know how to play finals. But of course its an Olympic final, and its always terrible. The nerves are coming already.She has a fix for that, the romance movie The Notebook, which came out the same year, 2004, that she made her senior Dutch debut. Her and roommate Naomi van As watch the movie before a tournament and before a final.Its a ritual, she said. Every time we watch it we become champions.Shes not half wrong. Hoog has won two Olympic golds, two World Cups, and three European Championships, and was world player of the year in 2014. Expected to retire after the Rio Games with more than 230 appearances and 60 goals, Hoog has already been setting herself up for her next career.Shes modeled for Sports Illustrated, published a book on fitness, and gives speeches on motivation.Theres no need to motivate for the final.We came here for the gold medal, she said. Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
