“A very easy decision, personally and professionally in a great place,” Rodgers added. “I’m a supporter who has got very lucky & someone who can hopefully develop the club further with the great people here.

“Beginning of journey. Only here a short time & want to grow an even greater connection between players & supporters. Hopefully the beginning of many more great times for supporters. Drive into morning at Lennoxtown & a real working environment & culture that I enjoy, everyone hungry to improve.

“Best we can be today but always one eye on tomorrow. Sit here with pride. A Celtic supporter that wasn’t good enough to play for team but next best thing is to manage it. Want to be here as long as I can. Celtic is the greatest club in the world and I have the privilege to manage it.”
