I’m In No Rush – Celtic Boss Brendan Rodgers Brushes Off Arsenal Question

 




Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has played down thoughts he could leave the club for a big job in the Premier League, amid being linked with potentially succeeding Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

Rodgers is currently in the midst of a hugely successful season with Celtic, having already led the Bhoys to the Scottish Premiership title and the Scottish League Cup, while they are also in the final of the Scottish Cup.




Celtic returned to the Champions League group stage this term under Rodgers and they are also unbeaten domestically as they rapidly close in on a historic season.

Rodgers' work north of the border has not gone unnoticed and he has been mooted as a potential successor to Wenger at the Emirates Stadium.

 


But the Northern Irishman insists he put pen to paper on a four-year deal because he is ready to accept responsibility for fulfilling Celtic's dreams.

Asked on BT Sport about potentially leaving for Arsenal, Rodgers replied: "I signed here for four years because I believe I can impose my way of working here and accept responsibility to take the club to what they want to achieve.

"Maybe after one year the supporters are fed up with me.

"Time will tell [if I’m here for ten in a row]."

The former Liverpool boss feels that he is in a place where he can enjoy management and where he already has a special feeling, with no need to rush elsewhere given the length of time he still expects to have left in the dugout.

"What I am is optimistic, but I am also realistically optimistic.

"I'd love to be here for that period of time. I looked at Martin [O’Neill]. Martin was here for five seasons, Lenny [Neil Lennon] was here for four.

"I looked at Martin's period here and I thought 'really, really successful'. He has gone down as one of the great legends of the club.

"So if Martin could be here for five years then it must have been a good place to be.

"I think the benefit I have now is that this is my fifth job as a manager and I appreciate what I have now.

"Maybe when you're younger, and I'm still young of course, but you're in a hurry.

"Hopefully I'm going to be coaching for another 20 years and I have a special feeling here", Rodgers added.

Celtic currently sit on the grand total of 100 points at the top of the Premiership standings with another two league fixtures left, at Partick Thistle and at home against Hearts, before the cup final against Aberdeen.
