The latter has become the Hoops' latest signing, and Rodgers has outlined how delighted he is to be working with him once again.

Patrick Roberts will not play any part in the first-leg of Celtic's Champions League play-off round tie with Hapoel Be'er Sheva this week, The Scottish Sun reports.

The winger is still recovering from a hamstring injury, but is hoping to be back for the second-leg next week, The Scottish Sun adds.

Brendan Rodgers has told the Evening Times that there are some aspects of his game he needs to work on, he loves the way young Hoops midfielder Liam Henderson demands the ball.

The 20-year-old spent last season out on loan with Hibernian, but Rodgers has hinted that he could be a part of his plans by suggesting that he is a fan of Henderson.

"I've been talking to Liam about improving tactically. Technically he's very good and demands the ball which I love in a player," he told the Evening Times.

Finally, former Rangers midfielder Lewis Macleod has told the Evening Times that he was disappointed when he found out that the Gers had accepted a bid from Brentford for him.

“I was disappointed but at the same time it was an opportunity to try something different. There was a lot going on at the club when it happened so it made it quite difficult," he told the Evening Times.
