Legendary sports broadcaster Jeff Stelling has weighed in on Brendan Rodgers' controversial comments in a live BBC interview.

The Celtic manager has been criticised after he called reporter Jane Lewis a 'good girl' after a frosty exchange during his post-match press duties at Fir Park.

The 50-year-old was unhappy with a certain line of questioning from the journalist following his side's 3-1 win over Motherwell.

And Stelling has been left wondering what on earth the ex-Liverpool and Leicester head coach was thinking with his remark.

Visibly shocked when it was aired during his talkSPORT breakfast show today, the ex-Soccer Saturday host said: "Good girl, good girl? Goodness me, Brendan. What does he mean?"

Lewis is believed to be unfazed by the comments, however, Campaigners from For Women Scotland have called on the Celtic boss to apologise for his words.

A spokesperson 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."

The Scottish Feminist Network branded the Irishman a 'dinosaur'.

A short statement read: "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."

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."
