Celtic midfielder Scott Brown has revealed to the club’s official website his recent discussion with new manager Brendan Rodgers.

Brown recently met the former Liverpool and Swansea City boss in his home in London.

The Scotland international, who is the captain of Celtic, has joked that he did not cook the dinner the duo had.

“I didn’t cook so it was okay! It was a great meal,” Brown told Celtic’s official website. “We sat down and chatted for a good couple of hours about the past and the future and what we're looking to do, and he was spot-on with everything.

“It’s going to be exciting times. His ideas and philosophy are great and it’s going to help me and a lot of the lads in the changing room. I'm looking forward to it.

“He spoke about a lot of things, such as responsibilities, talking on and off the park, bringing the lads as close as together as possible, making sure we have a good team morale and that we work hard on the park.”

Rodgers is a good manager, and it seems that he has explained his ideas to Brown.

It is great that the manager and the captain could have a private discussion, and this is only going to help the team going forward.

Celtic have not qualified for the group stage of the Champions League for the past two seasons, and that is going to be their priority this summer.

The Bhoys will be expected to win the Scottish Premiership title yet again, but the return of Old Firm rivals Rangers to the Scottish top flight could pose a genuine threat.

Celtic are likely to make some important signings in the summer in the summer transfer window, and the fans should be optimistic about a successful 2016-17 campaign.
