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: the season so far

The Brendan Rodgers era is well and truly underway – and Celtic are benefiting from his prowess and tactical astuteness in attack. The Bhoys have scored 15 goals in the first four games of the season, including five in their recent derby day victory over Rangers; a result that sent shockwaves across the Scottish Premiership.

Without doubt, Celtic are the best team in Scotland’s top flight and it would take a brave man to back against Rodgers’ side this year.

The former Chelsea winger has a good relationship withRodgers. In order to link up with the former Swansea manager, Sinclair literally begged Villa to allow a £ 3.5 million move to go through. Sinclair has become one of the important signings at Celtic in the summer.

Rodgers hoping to sign more players

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has stated that he would like to sign new players ahead of the new season.


Ideally, he wants to have the new recruits before the game against Astana that will count for the Champions League qualifiers.

Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that he is not planning a major revamp

New manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that he is not planning a major revamp of the squad in the summer transfer window, but he insisted that Celtic are in need of a few additions in certain areas of the pitch.

The Scottish club recently replaced Ronny Deila with the former Liverpool manager. Due to his extensive contacts in the Premier league over the last few years, the presence of Rodgers was expected to help Celtic attract many Premier League names. After having been at the club for almost a month, the club has not had any significant transfer activity.
