A vague term of praise bestowed upon sports teams or players when a commentator or pundit wants to praise them, but cannot highlight anything about their performance that was particularly good. Especially popularised by former Liverpool and Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers, the term 'great character' is good as it is ambiguous enough that a team or athlete does not have to show any particular attribute to qualify for it, but nevertheless vaguely implies some kind of tenacity or strength of personality on their part.
"The boys showed great character out there today to get that win."
