Brendan Rodgers has won each and every domestic trophy up for grabs since being appointed as Celtic’s manager ahead of the 2016/17 season. And just to make that achievement all the more remarkable, he is yet to taste defeat in a single domestic game on Scottish soil.

But this does not mean Rodgers believes he has taken Celtic as far as he can already. As the Northern Irishman told the Daily Record after The Bhoys’ 2-0 Scottish League Cup triumph over Motherwell on Sunday, he’s just getting started.

“This is my fifth job now. I always say happiness and energy are the two things you need. There’s always a challenge at Celtic and there always will be, whoever is in charge here.”

Offers on the table?

Rodgers has not been short of offers to return to English football in the last few months, however. The Daily Record adds that West Ham were hoping to hire him before turning their attention to David Moyes.

And former club Swansea City, who Rodgers guided to the Premier League in 2011, were also keen to discover whether he would have been tempted by a return to the Liberty Stadium as recently as last month with the pressure mounting on Paul Clement.

But despite Rodgers’ connection with Swansea and his history at the club, his stellar work north of the border surely means he could afford to be a little more ambitious when he does decide that he has done all he can at Celtic.

Rodgers has restored his reputation as one of the brightest minds in British football and his stock is arguably higher now than it was when he guided that thrilling Liverpool side to within touching distance of the Premier League title in 2013/14.

Why, then, would he be tempted to swap a Celtic side playing Champions League football and dominating the domestic game for a Swansea team set for another year in a relegation dogfight?

After Rodgers' work at Parkhead is complete, he can expect some of the biggest clubs in Britain, if not Europe, to be casting admiring glances in his direction.
