Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is pleased that Nicolas Kuhn opened his Bhoys’ account in the 1-1 draw at Pittodrie.


Kuhn was snapped up by Celtic from Austrian side Rapid Vienna in the winter transfer window and Rodgers brought him on off the bench against Aberdeen on Saturday lunchtime in the Scottish Premiership.


It took just four minutes for the winger to find the back of the net and draw Celtic level against Aberdeen.




Kuhn was assisted by another January recruit in the shape of Adam Idah and Rodgers thinks that the goal will boost the German’s confidence.


“He came on and got his goal, that’ll be good for his confidence”, Rodgers said to BBC Radio Scotland.



The draw was a disappointment for Celtic and Rodgers admits there have been too many times when they have dropped points.


He insists however that Celtic must keep fighting and working hard.



“We’ve dropped points in too many games but we’ve got to keep fighting and working”, Rodgers explained.


“All we can concentrate on is ourselves.


“We can only focus on our own game.”


Kuhn also came off the bench against Ross County late last month and the German will be hoping he has now pushed his case enough with Rodgers to be handed a start in the next game against Hibernian.
