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 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.

BOSS TRIES TO CONVINCE TWO STARS TO STAY

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is trying to convince two of the club’s top stars to remain at the club despite their reluctance.

The players Tom Rogic and Stefan Johansen have their contracts in the final year but they have not yet agreed to a new deal that will tie them to the club.

Rodgers: No Major Changes

Celtic have won the Scottish League Championship for 5 consecutive years and are the undisputed best team of Scotland, and yet there has been a recent switch of managers as Ronny Deila left his coaching position and was replaced by Brendan Rodgers.
