It’s not often we see Brendan Rodgers get too high with the highs, or too low with the lows.
But the manager couldn’t hide his fury at half-time on Sunday at McDiarmid Park after his players put in a display that fell way below the high standards that have been set.
There’s no doubt it had the desired effect as the Hoops scored three without reply in the second half against St Johnstone – but should it have been required in the first place?
One player who made a notable impact on the day was forgotten man Mikey Johnston who gave a timely reminder of what he can offer with a game changing performance.
Can he finally now show the talent he undoubtedly has on a consistent basis?
That’s the challenge Brendan Rodgers has set for him and some of his team-mates as the manager looks to cull his 32-man squad in the weeks ahead.
Who stays, and who goes as he looks to assert his authority on the team?
