Rodgers may ‘collide’ with top boss to secure another Celtic deal

Life amongst the Celtic fans has proved a happy one this season, with Brendan Rodgers’ green and white army conquering all before them in Scotland. 

Closing in on an unbeaten campaign domestically, there have been only a few days when the Bhoys in the bar of the Transfer Tavern have been in low spirits this term.

So, little changed today following reports from the Sun. They claim the SPFL giants are keen on keeping loan star Patrick Roberts in Paradise beyond the course of his deal, one that runs out in just a few weeks time.

The England U20 star moved to Glasgow last January in an 18-month deal and has proved a popular figure at Parkhead, even scoring against parent club Manchester City in the Champions League.

As a result of his exciting outings, the Hoops are understood to be willing to pay £500k to keep the 20-year-old another season, though Pep Guardiola could reportedly have other ideas.

The Spaniard is thought to be eager to take the former Fulham man on City’s pre-season tour of America in order to judge if he’s ready for the first-team at the Etihad, though this report suggests Rodgers and Guardiola could ‘collide’ over his future.

Such is the popular nature of Roberts’ standing in the bar, the Celtic fans are hoping he’s kept on next season.
