Brendan Rodgers has been urged to apologise after calling BBC reporter Jane Lewis a 'good girl' in the aftermath of Celtic's 3-1 win at Motherwell.

The Irishman made the remark at the end of a spiky interview with the national broadcaster at Fir Park.

Adam Idah and Luis Palma got the goals for the champions as they closed the gap on Rangers at the top of the Premiership. The deficit now sits at two points.

But it was after the game, when referring to a 'narrative' that is being driven about his team, that Rodgers said 'Good girl, well done' to Lewis after she tried to get more information about his cryptic answers.

The exchange played out, with Rodgers' initial answer starting it all: "To get the win was important for us, psychologically, and for our football. It was another game to convince that when we play how we can play then the goals and creativity will be there.

"So I'm delighted for the players because like I've said, there's a story been written about this group, so we will write our own story."

Lewis probed to get more, but Rodgers sharply responded: "No, no. You know exactly what I mean. No."

Lewis said: "Can you tell us anymore, you're the one who brought that up so can you not give us some more on it?"

And then Rodgers ended the conversation, saying: "Okay, are we done? Good girl, well done, cheers."

Now, the Daily Mail reports that Lewis is unfazed by the comment made by Rodgers.

However, in their piece, they have comments from The Scottish Feminist Network and Campaigners from For Women Scotland, both of whom condemned what he had to say.

The former said: "Jane Lewis was just doing her job, trying to extract an explanation from Brendan Rodgers on his cryptic comment.

"That the go-to attitude was condescension is quite illuminating, but really very depressing in 2024. We thought dinosaurs were extinct."

And a spokeswoman for Campaigners from For Women Scotland said: "It's depressing that casual sexism is still embedded in sport.

"Women's achievements are underrated and dismissed, and their professional status undermined. Rodgers owes the reporter an apology."
