Celtic News: Rodgers happy at Hoops

1 year ago

In the latest Celtic team news, manager Brendan Rodgers says he is happy working with the Scottish champions but has not ruled out a return to the Premier League at some point in the future.

The former Liverpool boss, who nearly guided the Reds to the English crown in the 2013/14 season, has impressed north of the border, with his side currently sitting 10 points clear at the top of the Premiership table.

Rodgers’ success in Scotland has seen the Northern Irishman linked to positions back in the Premier League, with Arsenal thought to be a possible destination for the former Swansea City boss at the end of the current campaign.

With Celtic doing so well domestically, Rodgers says he is enjoying life up in Glasgow but the Northern Irish tactician says he has not ruled out making a return to England at some point in his career.

“I’m in a position where I’m in my dream job. As a guy from Northern Ireland who supported Celtic and worked in football, I’m living my dream here,” Rodgers told the Mail on Sunday.

“I want to work through until I’m 60 and get to a thousand games and I probably know I won’t do the other 500-odd games here at Celtic.

“Between the club and I, we will look at it and see where we’re at. I have to do the best with the resources we have here. That’s not a lack of ambition. That’s me at a club where I have a sense of happiness every day.”

Celtic are next in action on Saturday when they host a Ross County side sat rock bottom of the Premiership table.

The Old Firm outfit is 23/20 with BetVictor to win the match at Parkhead against the Stags to nil.
