“I’m really excited about that,” he said. “It’s going to be a day I’m really looking forward to in terms of walking out there as the official manager in a game context.

“It can be a really exciting season for us but for that we need the supporters. I really do want to see the stadium full.”

Celtic supporters are massively enthused by the prospect of Rodgers being in charge and he should be welcomed by a passionate crowd.

The Parkhead faithful had begun to vote with their feet under Ronny Deila, but attendances should be back up with Rodgers in charge.
