Brendan Rodgers has been in charge at Celtic for over two weeks now.

Craig Gordon has told Celtic’s official site that he has thoroughly enjoyed working with Brendan Rodgers at Parkhead so far.

Rodgers has been in charge at Celtic for just over two weeks now, and the Northern Irish boss has begun to make his mark on the team.

Rodgers has made adaptations to Ronny Deila’s training sessions, and Gordon is enjoying linking up with the former Liverpool boss.

“Since the gaffer has come in, the technical information he has been putting over in how he wants to play, and the tactical aspects of the game he has tried to put in place already in training have been great to see," Gordon said. 

“We have really enjoyed looking at that side of it and how we can improve – he is always looking to improve in every training session on something and hopefully we can continue doing that.”

Rodgers has spoken of a desire to get Celtic playing an attacking brand of football this season.

The 43-year-old boss is famed for his passing approach, and Celtic are expected to adopt a similar style of play to what Liverpool did under Rodgers’ stewardship.

Rodgers has taken charge of two Celtic matches in pre-season so far, and he is yet to taste defeat.

Celtic first drew 2-2 with NK Celje in Slovenia, before they beat Sturm Graz yesterday.

Celtic’s first competitive match comes later this month in Champions League qualification.
