'Trophies do not define me' - Rodgers

Brendan Rogers

Brendan Rodgers insists his managerial career will not be defined by trophies as he prepares for the Betfred Cup final against Aberdeen tomorrow.

The Northern Irishman won a Championship play-off final with Swansea but so far no major trophies with former clubs Watford, Reading and Liverpool, whom he managed before moving to Parkhead in the summer.

The first of three major domestic trophies in Scotland is up for grabs at Hampden Park tomorrow with the Hoops strong favourites against a side they have beaten twice in the Ladbrokes Premiership this season.

Asked if it would be gratifying to collect major silverware for the first time, he said: "No. It really isn't.

"When I started coaching my aim was to develop players and if you are fortunate enough to work with teams that allow you to win trophies then great. But it will never define me as a coach, it may others, but it doesn't me."
