Can Brendan Rodgers Keep Dembele and Gordon at Parkhead?

The January transfer window is over and Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has done a terrific job in keeping Moussa Dembele and Craig Gordon from Chelsea’s clutches for the rest of the campaign. Celtic have been dominant this season and the Bhoys have built up a solid 27-point lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table with just 14 matches remaining.

Dembele is the poster boy of French football but he could be set for a successful future at Celtic Park if Rodgers can convince him that this is the best place for his development. The 20-year-old has been simply sublime this season; netting 23 goals in 39 appearances as well as setting up four more for his teammates.

His hat-trick goal in Celtic’s recent 5-2 victory over St Johnstone was phenomenal. To be fair, the build-up play was outstanding and his peers deserve plenty of credit for their intricacy in the box. Incredibly, this was Dembele’s second hat-trick of the season; who could forget his treble in the 5-1 thrashing of Rangers at Celtic Park back in September?

Nadir Ciftci of Celtic FC has an uncertain future

Rodgers Rebuilding Reputation with Celtic Success

Following a turbulent three-year spell on Merseyside with Liverpool, Northern Irishman Brendan Rodgers has been swiftly rebuilding his managerial career on Glasgow soil with Scottish champions Celtic. The now 43-year-old coach endured a shaky start to proceedings at Parkhead, with many fans instantly questioning his suitability to the job, but he has proved any early doubters wrong.

Despite further European misery for the club in the Champions League, having finished bottom of their tough Group C behind Barcelona, Manchester City and Borussia Monchengladbach, Rodgers has steered the Hoops strongly towards domestic dominance.

Rodgers Wants Celtic to Reinvest Champions League Money into the Squad

Brendan Rodgers wants Celtic to invest much of the £ 30 million that they are set to receive from the Champions League in the squad so as to build for the future.


Rodgers was appointed as the Celtic boss in the summer in order to replace Ronny Deila. His predecessor was largely judged upon the lack of success in European competitions. It is clear that Rodgers will not be judged upon his record in the Premier League, even after the return of Rangers to the top division, and the Champions League is what matters the most for the Scottish outfit.

CELTIC PRODIGY – KARAMOKO DEMBELE

Celtic seem to have found a future superstar in 13-year old Karamoko Dembele.


The youngster came off the bench to get his debut in a Celtic Under 20 game, and there’s been so much fuss about the player ever since. Celtic already have a fan favourite in Moussa Dembele. Dembele is attracting interests from top clubs due to his amazing talent. He has 12 goals already for the Scottish super weight since his move from Fulham. Many believe Karamoko is as talented, hence the craze.

Rodgers in line for a deserved double

Despite his excellent achievements at Liverpool where he came so agonisingly close to winning the club’s first ever Premier League title, Brendan Rodgers’ managerial career has lacked any silverware. His most notable triumph to date was winning the Championship play-off final with Swansea City in 2011, an achievement that helped him attain the much coveted job on Merseyside.

Although he was named LMA Manager of the Year for the 2013-14 season, the Reds sacked him due to his lack of tangible awards. Now with Celtic it looks as though the 43-year-old’s hard work is finally about to pay off, as the Scottish champions are well on track for a league and cup double.

CELTIC FACE DIFFICULT TASK IN UCL
