New Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has told the club’s official website that he has already held positive talks with captain Scott Brown.

The former Liverpool manager was confirmed as the new Celtic manager last month, replacing Ronny Deila at Paradise.

It is as yet unknown what his plans for the side are, with many expecting him to oversee something of an overhaul of the current squad.

He is not set to start work with the current group until the 20th of this month, which is when the players are scheduled for their first day back.

However, it seems he has already met one of them, captain Scott Brown, after inviting him round for dinner to discuss his ideas for the Scottish champions.

“I had dinner with Scott at my house down in London and we were able to meet up and have a real good chat,” he told celticfc.net.

“It was good to get his opinion on how things are, how it looks for him at the club and also for me to introduce myself to the club captain and talk through my ideas.”

It will certainly be interesting to see just how busy that Rodgers is in the transfer market this summer.

This current squad has been labeled as not good enough by a number of fans and pundits alike, after several years of the Scottish giants electing to work with a small transfer budget.

That has seen them fail to make it into the Champions League for the past two years, and it will need serious funds to ensure that isn’t the case under Rodgers.
