Former Liverpool boss is Celtic manager

Scottish Premier League champions Celtic have appointed Brendan Rodgers as their new manager.

Rodgers, who has coached Liverpool, Swansea City, Reading and Watford, has signed a 12-month contract replacing Ronny Deila after he left the side at the end of the season.

Rogers left Liverpool in October 2015 after being in charge for over three years.

In an interview, Rogers said he would try and bring entertaining and winning football for the fans.

“I will give everything I have and do all I can to bring our supporters exciting, entertaining and winning football,” said the Northern Irishman.

“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.”
