Speaking to the club’s official website, Celtic first team coach John Kennedy has described Brendan Rodgers and his staff as impressive.

The former Liverpool manager took charge at the club last month, replacing Ronny Deila after his departure at the end of last season.

His arrival has been warmly welcomed at the club, with many believing they have pulled off a coup in securing his signature.

They are hoping for big success under the Northern Irishman, after two years that have been marked as disappointing ones under Deila.

Kennedy is one man that has been impressed by the new Hoops boss, saying he is looking forward to working under him in future. 

“Brendan’s a very impressive individual and I’m looking forward to getting the opportunity to work with him,” he told celticfc.net.

“He’s brought some impressive staff with him so first impressions are very good, as you’d expect. Everyone is really excited about the season ahead with him in charge.”

First and foremost it will be interesting to see what work that Rodgers does in his first summer transfer window at the club.

The club has opted to spend low in recent windows, often trying to find gems that they could sell on for a bigger price in future.

That though, has seen a number of disappointing signings arrive at the club, something they have been roundly criticised for.

It appears they will end that plan to try and ensure they make it back into the Champions League, and it be intriguing to see who Rodgers targets as a result.
