    It could & should have been with us in 2014, but he’s now a title winner in Scotland & I wouldn’t rule out him managing LFC again one day. Answered many of his critics especially if they go the season unbeaten. A decent replacement for Suarez, instead of the Balotelli backfire gamble, & we could have won it in 2015 imho.

    I have big questions about Brendan’s ability at the highest level, but he left with dignity.

    Well done Brendan and Celtic!

    Congratulations Rodgers for the impossible task of winning the Scottish league with a club that hasn’t won it since….

    He did have a decent Champions League season with a very tough group. I think that should be the focus

    That’s bitter of you Richie Patridge. . . but everyone to their own.

    Fair dues to Rodgers, it’s not the move I’d have made as a manager because you won’t ever get respect for winning the Scottish league. For me it’s the fashion in which you win it, so I’m right with you Sanj in hoping that they can go unbeaten. . now that would be a genuine achievement. TBH the points gap they already have is. .

    Although Sanj, I’m sorry but you’re utterly mad if you think that Rodgers will ever manage Liverpool again.

    Rogers is young enough to still go on to great things but I wouldn’t go overboard with praise for winning a 1 horse race.

    It will give Rodgers deserved confidence in his ability as a manager but agreed you cant get carried away…of all the managers that have won the Scottish league in the last 20 years how many of them have gone on to do anything greater than that? But if anyone does go onto bigger things then Rodgers has as good a chance as anyone. He used to be Chelsea coach so has experience in London so could he be net Arsenal manger, he certainly aspires to the attractive football that Wenger pioneered.

    Maybe it is a bit too soon to congratulate him, but if Celtic go unbeaten this season & win the treble…

    Rodgers undoubtedly is very good at coaching the style of attacking football we know all about. We obviously would like to have seen a bit more steel in the middle and at the back but then that’s not the coach he was. He could quite fairly point to the falling through of players like Willian, Mkhitaryan, Costa, Sanchez, etc and he may well still have been manager had just a few of those come. I’ll never quite understand why he went for Benteke though. He was given a second chance that summer, and he got that so so wrong.

    Mwake, that’s the problem with winning the title in Scotland though, it almost goes against you when it comes to landing such a massive job like the Arsenal one. It’s a league title to your name but without the kinds of pressure scenarios that other leagues offer. I can’t see anything that Rodgers has done since leaving Liverpool that will convince the Arsenal board to even talk to him. . The season isn’t over though, so it’s the manner in which he finishes that might distinguish him from other Scottish PL managers. If he can have an ‘Invincible’ season that might make for a tiny blip on London radar but as things stand, his title challenge with Liverpool remains his most noteworthy CV addition.

    Mikus, missing out on those players was massive alright. You have to replace the likes of Suarez as best as you can or you’re in serious trouble and FSG dropped the ball there. Their adaptation of Moneyball doesn’t make for on the field success and I hope they’ve learned their lesson, heading into this summer with eyes on Coutinho and Mane in particular.

    I could see Real (or a number of other mega rich clubs) coming in for Mane and Barca coming in for Coutinho. FSG could make a MASSIVE profit on both players if this were to happen but we’d be left in the same situation as we were with Rodgers, post challenge.

    FSG’s idea is to prune the ripened players but to succeed on the field, the whole team must be allowed to grow and develop. . I don’t want to prejudge them though, I’ll give them a fair chance that they can adapt to the English game and also develop their business at the same time. The value of the club is on a general upward trend in terms of value. Klopp is a big name and if we make the CL and do ok in it, Liverpool’s profile can be massive once again. A big profile = big sponsorship revenue, merchandising and market penetration.

    anyway what a load of waffle, sry haha

    Really? It’s a one horse race in Scotland which Celtic would have won even with Nicola Sturgeon as Manager. 🙂

    Winning it wasn’t the accomplishment nine, it was that he’s managed it so easily and has brought them on hugely from last year. I know your comment is a little tongue in cheek though!

    iv watched celtic a bit this season as i like rodgers and hope he does well. Celtic park is packed , back to 60k a week after attendances dropping. They play good attacking football which pleases the fans. Its a nothing league but he has breathed new life into the club.
    The triple would cap a fine 1st season but the big test is progressing in europe.

    celtic need rangers to get back to were they were to make it a really inresting league but rodgers has done a good job there.

    If liverpool were just about saurez then why didnt we challenege for the league under kenny? We picked upo 18 points from 6 games without him at the start of the 13/14 season. Couthino,sterling,henderson,gerrard ,saurez all improved under rodgers that season., Gerrard has his best season for 4 years. Credit were credit is due.

    Rodgers almost won the PL with Liverpool but when he was sacked no top clubs were interested in him hence why he ended up at Celtic.

    The challenge for Rodgers is getting a top club to offer him a chance and then to win something with them.

    Part of the problem with Rodgers is that he’s got a bigger ego than even Mourinho without any of the major trophies.

    I have a thing living between my big toe and next toe that could manage Celtic to a treble every year for the next three years. The Scottish Prem has as much point as that horrible little Wee Jimmy Krankie bitch Nicola Sturgeon. Fan Dabi Dozi ya b****rd.

    I’m definitely not calling him a top manager Nine. He has improved the team though and he’s won a league. Unlike many Liverpool fans, I don’t begrudge him that!

    Totally agree bofa. I like to see all managers succeed when they leave us. Hopefully Rafa gets Newcastle up.
