Brendan Rodgers Unsure of Staying at Celtic for Long

Brendan Rodgers refused to commit his long-term future with Celtic by saying that he does not know when he would leave the club.

The arrival of the northern Irishman has coincided with a brilliant spell at Celtic. The club has dropped only four points in the league so far this season. They have been able to break numerous records along the way. Celtic are now on an unbeaten run that stretches to 28 games in the domestic competition. Even though they have suffered the European exit, Celtic were not expected to make much of an impact especially considering that they were drawn in the same group containing the likes of Barcelona and Manchester City.

Time to Focus on Moussa Dembele

It is official: Celtic have been crowned Scottish Premiership champions for the sixth year in a row. Brendan Rodgers’ men thrashed Hearts 5-0 to secure another Scottish title with eight league games remaining and attention will now turn to the future of talented youngster Moussa Dembele.

Dembele is one of Europe’s hottest young prospects and he is only going to get better as he gains more experience. At just 20 years old, he has the potential to blossom into one of the best players on the planet and the likes of Barcelona, Chelsea and Bayern Munich have been linked with a move for the Celtic star this summer.

CELTIC ON VERGE OF BREAKING RECORDS

Scottish champions Celtic have been undefeated this term and they are set to break the continent’s all-time record of 29 straight league victories – that was set by Portuguese side Benfica in 1972.


The Hoops are set to face rivals Rangers on Sunday. If Brendan Rodger and his boys win the game, they would equal Malmo’s 23-game streak set in the 1949/50 season.

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

Brendan Rodgers rates Craig Gordon very highly and this became very clear as the Northern Irish manager did not want to see Gordon leaving Celtic FC during the winter transfer window.


After everything was said and done, Gordon did not make a move to any other club despite being linked with the Premier League club Chelsea.

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.
