It’s been a wonderful week for the Celtic fans here in the Transfer Tavern.
With the Bhoys in the bar delighted about big wins over Rangers AND Anderlecht in the Champions League within the space of a few days, Brendan Rodgers is the talk of the town in Glasgow.
While the former Liverpool coach has been the butt of jokes from Premier League fans over the years, he’s certainly impressing up in Scotland and one particular man has been waxing poetic about the 44-year-old.
Indeed, while speaking to STV, chief executive Peter Lawwell has been praising the Northern Irishman for his work since taking over from Ronny Deila in the summer of 2016.
Not too much work has been done in the transfer market since his arrival and Lawwell has credited Rodgers with coaching players from another era into a new way of playing, a style that has seen them go unbeaten in domestic competition for 57-games.
“It’s been remarkable, the majority of the players that appeared for the first team each week and appeared last night were at Celtic with Ronny before Brendan came”, said Lawwell.
“So he’s done an incredible job, he’s an outstanding manager and outstanding coach, and I’m delighted for him.”
“The amount of work he puts in, the coaches put in, the way the players have developed and the way they are performing, it’s been remarkable really.”
Craig Bellamy recently suggested nobody would care about Rodgers’ work with Celtic. However, if he can get through a Champions League group also containing Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich, Lawwell’s comments will hold even greater sway.
