Celtic Manager Brendan Rodgers Signs New Four-year Deal

share on:

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has signed a new four-year deal.

Rodgers, 44, has guided Celtic to the league title and the League Cup in his debut season

The former Liverpool, Swansea City, Reading and Watford boss had signed a 12-month rolling contract last May.

“It just felt right,” said Rodgers. “I couldn’t be happier. I’m in the best place I could possibly be.”

Rodgers thanked the club’s board for their commitment since appointing him in the summer.

“Professionally and personally I’m in a good place,” he added. “A few years ago I might have been in a rush. But I have learnt to cherish what you have.

“It’s the beginning of the journey, but there’s a lot more to achieve.”

Celtic CEO Peter Lawwell has also hailed the impact Brendan Rodgers has already had at Parkhead and has expressed his delight at tying down one of world football’s “best coaches”.

He said: “Brendan has made a huge impact at Celtic already. He’s an outstanding manager and we believe he is one of the best coaches in Europe, if not world football, and we’re delighted that he has committed his future to Celtic.”

Rodgers has already led the team to a Premiership and League Cup double this season, with a Scottish Cup semi-final to come later this month.
