"We will prepare for a tough game of course, but our aim is to win".
Rodgers joked that "when I first came up here, he used to be Charlie Christie's son and now Charlie is known as Ryan Christie's dad". It will be a fantastic demonstration of what the Celtic support is about and that synergy between them and the team.
"It's good to see that we feel as a club that we kind of belong here and feel at home here".
"But you know we want to win every game we play, so it's my job to relax the mind and focus on our performance".
"They were pressing the game and with their ability technically they showed their talent when they had the ball to take opportunities and control the game".
McInnes said: "I always remember Sir Alex saying to me after we lost the 3-0 game against Celtic, that only by revisiting surroundings that players start to feel home and be more capable of delivering a performance".
They proved too strong for Hearts in the semi-final of the League Cup as they coasted to a 3-0 win at the Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh in October.
Rodgers allayed any injury fears surrounding Mikael Lustig, James Forrest and Odsonne Edouard ahead of the Hampden showdown with Aberdeen this weekend, after the three players were withdrawn against Rosenborg.
"Prior to coming in we had only won one trophy in 20-odd years, so that suggests that, while it's important, it's not easy", he said.
