Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed he rejected an offer to leave Parkhead and move to China during the summer.

After securing a second successive domestic treble, the former Swansea and Liverpool manager was the subject of an approach from a Chinese club but was happy to stay in Glasgow.

Before the Betfred Cup quarter-final clash with St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park, Rodgers told BBC Scotland: “There was an offer. My concentration was with Celtic.

“At the end of the season, what was important was to get away, recover from a really tough season and prepare for the next season.

“Nothing (in the offer) made me think otherwise.”
