Brendan Rodgers issues emphatic update on his Celtic future

Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers spoke to reporters concerning recent rumours linking him with a managerial role in England, and insisted that he is 100 per cent happy in Glasgow, with no intention of jumping ship, as quoted by the Scotsman.

The 44-year-old has performed magnificently in his role as Celtic manager, since his appointment at Parkhead 18 months ago, guiding his side to an unprecedented 63 game unbeaten run, and a glorious treble-winning campaign last season.

Unfortunately for the Glasgow giants though, his fine work with the Hoops has not gone unnoticed, with the Telegraph claiming that he is amongst Everton's top three candidates to fill the vacant managerial role at Goodison Park.

Rodgers though, insisted that he is going nowhere, when speaking to reporters, highlighting how happy he currently is in his role as Celtic boss, as quoted by the Scotsman:

“I look at the Premier League and you have virtually got a six week cycle and that’s frightening as a coach and a manager. When I came to Celtic, the club was looking to move on. Ronny (Deila) had done a good job in his two years winning two titles. I felt if we came in and won in a better way we could fill the stands again. And it has been fantastic for me working at Celtic and doing what we are doing. I’m not sure I could be anywhere in the world, not just in England, and be as happy as I am now because I’m getting the chance to develop players.”

The Hoops are currently in the midst of a two-week lay-off due to the international break, and their fans will be champing at the bit to see their side back in action.

They currently sit comfortably at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, with a three point lead over second placed Aberdeen, and they return to action with a trip to Ross County on November 18th.
