The Ronny Deila era at Celtic seems oh so long ago now, with the Hoops propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern waxing poetic about Brendan Rodgers’ impact in Glasgow.
Not only have some of the new signings added an extra dimension to the Scottish champions, the former Liverpool coach has also improved some of the old guard.
One of those, in particular, has been Bhoys skipper Scott Brown.
Written off in certain sections last term, the former Hibs man has been in good form of late and is starting to look like the sort of players so loved at Parkhead in years gone by.
So, his comments made to the Scottish Sun have come as music to the ears for the fans in this evening.
After retiring from Scotland international duty, the 31-year-old has revealed his decision to call time on the Tartan Army can help him extend his club career until he’s 40.
“I’m back feeling strong and enjoying my football again and that’s why it was the right decision for me at the right time”, said Brown.
“You don’t want to give up halfway through a campaign because — it looks as though you are throwing in the towel.
“If you do it at the start, it lets everyone know you are done and dusted and allows the gaffer to go and try other players.
“If I could go on and play until I am 40, I would be over the moon.
“It wouldn’t matter what league, or what division. I just enjoy being part of a dressing room and doing well. If I am still doing that when I am 35, 36 or 37, I’ll be a lucky man.”
How long does Brown have left at the top? Let us know below…
