Celtic - Brendan Rodgers Press Conference

Speaking to the club’s official website, Anthony Ralston has shared his high opinion of new manager Brendan Rodgers.

The former Liverpool boss took charge at Celtic last month following Ronny Deila’s departure at the end of last season.

His arrival at the club has been heralded as a major coup for the club, who it is believed fought off Premier League interest in his services.

The current Celtic squad are certainly impressed by their new manager, with several having already shared their high opinions of him.

Ralston is the latest to do so, saying that it is brilliant for a manager of that stature to come in and take charge at Paradise.

“I think he is brilliant,” he told celtic.fc.net. “He has managed some top teams, especially Liverpool and nearly won the league a few seasons ago. It’s brilliant to have a manager of that stature coming in and taking over our team.”

It now remains to be seen if Rodgers can be a success at Celtic as they look to make it six successive Scottish Premiership titles.

He will face a tougher fight than his predecessors did in recent years, with Rangers' return to the top flight sure to increase competition for the title.

Much will likely rest on the work he can get done in the transfer window, with Rodgers likely keen to improve the squad he inherited from Deila as much as possible in the weeks ahead.
