This is the unseen moment that has Celtic fans loving Brendan Rodgers' authority following their Scottish Cup semi-final win over Aberdeen.

The Hoops booked their slot in the final of the competition with a penalty shootout victory over the Dons at Hampden on Saturday. They will face Rangers in the season finale on Saturday, May 25.

While the players took most of the plaudits for the nerve-shredding win at the national stadium, Rodgers also appears to have received the backing of fans on social media.

That's because footage has emerged of the Northern Irishman seemingly berating the club's kitman Stevie Wright while preparing his players for the second half of extra time.

The clip, which has been widely shared online, shows Wright talking to Paulo Bernardo. It appears he was passing on advice to the young Portuguese midfielder with the Hoops 3-2 up at the time.

However, a few seconds after Wright could be seen covering with Bernardo, Rodgers stormed over, breaking away from the Celtic huddle, ordering his backroom staff member to step back from the situation, as he ensured he got Bernardo's full attention.

And this moment, which largely went unseen on Saturday, has now caught the eye of the Celtic faithful - and they're loving it.

One fan wrote on X: "The kitman giving advice to Paulo Bernardo before the restart. Guy doesn't seem to have any coaching or playing experience. Rodgers quite rightly telling him to stay in his lane."

Another commented: "Never seen this yesterday. I like it though. BR in full charge."

One observer said: "Noticed this yesterday. Kitman going full Pep on Bernardo. What's he thinking."

Another wrote: "Know your job, especially in a game of that magnitude at that point."

And another rounded off: "Great Sunday content."
