Brendan Rodgers Football manager pens new deal with Celtic


CELTIC manager Brendan Rodgers has signed a new four-year contract with the club.

Celtic remain unbeaten domestically this season and clinched their sixth successive Ladbrokes Premiership title last week with victory over Hearts at Tynecastle, keeping them on course for the treble in the process.

The Carnlough man arrived on a one-year rolling contract last summer but has committed himself to the Parkhead club until 2021.

Despite Celtic's fine campaign, Rodgers is hoping to oversee further improvements within the club during his time in charge.

"Brendan has made a huge impact at Celtic already", Lawwell said shortly after announcing the deal.

Upon extending his stay at the Glasgow club, Rodgers said: "It just felt right".

Former Watford, Reading, Swansea and Liverpool manager Rodgers stressed he felt the commitment would help him grow the squad and encourage players such as Tom Rogic and Kieran Tierney to follow suit by signing long-term deals.

"I just love being here, love helping the players develop and making the team better".

This season Celtic failed to register a single win in a tough Champions League group.

Speaking at the announcement of his new contract, the Ulsterman told reporters: "I couldn't be happier".

"It's an incredible club to work for and like I say there is much more to do here, much more to achieve".

"Our only disappointment was defending the counter-attack and the goal we conceded, we could have been better but in the main, we had everything I would want from a team, with our counter-pressing and playing with that lovely arrogance and charisma in the game. And I wanted to continue that".
