The Celtic fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern are discussing the news that the club have chosen their man to manage the club.
The Scottish champions have confirmed the news that they have appointed Brendan Rodgers as the club’s new manager.
The former Liverpool manager has signed a 12-month rolling contract with club following Ronny Deila’s departure last week.
The 43-year-old led Liverpool to their highest finish in the Premier League a couple of seasons ago, and the Northern Irishman is seen as one of the best young managers in the game today.
Speaking to the club’s official website about his appointment, Rodgers said: “I am absolutely delighted to be named Celtic manager. This is genuinely a huge honour for me. I have followed Celtic all my life and to be given this fantastic opportunity and to be part of such a truly great football club is a dream come true.
“I will give my new role everything I have and do all I can to bring our supporters exciting, entertaining and winning football.
“The Club has been in magnificent shape in recent years and has collected silverware regularly during this time. My objective now, of course, is to continue this work, to keep us at the top and again make our mark in Europe.
“I know what a magnificent support Celtic enjoys and I can promise our fans one thing – that I will be doing everything I can to give you a team that you can be proud of and a team that delivers.
“I can’t wait to be in Paradise with our team and our fans as we all get to work.”
Our landlord in The Tavern believes that Rodgers is a great appointment for the club and believes that he can get the very best out of Celtic domestically and on the continent.
The Celtic fans are delighted with the news and think he did a great job at Liverpool and can’t wait to see how the club move forward under his guidance next season!
