  • Brendan Rodgers:  This is a huge honour for me

    Brendan Rodgers: This is a huge honour for me

    By: Paul Cuddihy on 20 May, 2016 19:01

  • BRENDAN Rodgers has been a Celtic supporter his whole life, so to become manager of the club is a dream appointment.

    The 43-year-old has taken charge at Paradise, intent on continuing to deliver a sixth title in a row and making inroads in Europe, and he can’t wait to get started.

    The new Celtic manager said: "I am absolutely delighted to be named Celtic manager. This is genuinely a huge honour for me. I have followed Celtic all my life and to be given this fantastic opportunity and to be part of such a truly great football club is a dream come true.

    "I will give my new role everything I have and do all I can to bring our supporters exciting, entertaining and winning football.

    "The Club has been in magnificent shape in recent years and has collected silverware regularly during this time. My objective now, of course, is to continue this work, to keep us at the top and again make our mark in Europe.

    "I know what a magnificent support Celtic enjoys and I can promise our fans one thing - that I will be doing everything I can to give you a team that you can be proud of and a team that delivers.

    "I can't wait to be in Paradise with our team and our fans as we all get to work."

    Brendan Rodgers will be officially unveiled at a media conference this Monday, May 23, 2016 at Celtic Park at 4pm and he will then meet supporters at 6pm at the stadium.
