Celtic boss Rodgers breaks silence over Arsenal speculation

Brendan Rodgers claims he is “loving life” at Celtic but admits that “dreams always come to an end at some point” amid speculation that he could replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

The Frenchman has come under pressure again at the Emirates Stadium following back-t0-back 3-0 losses to Manchester City and there have been some claims that a poor result in their match at Brighton could be the beginning of the end for Wenger.

Rodgers is one of the names that has been linked in recent days following his good work as Liverpool and Celtic manager.

“I’m loving my life up here,” Rodgers said. “I’m not going to be here forever but I’m living in a dream.

“Dreams always come to an end at some point, that’s for sure. But I am always relaxed about speculation. My focus is only on Celtic.

“Arsenal are a great club, they have a great manager and they are going through a tough time of course.

“People will look at it and see that I went to Liverpool, they were struggling for five seasons for Champions League football and I was able to get them back.

“And when I came to Celtic, they hadn’t been in the Champions League for two seasons and I got them back.

“So maybe people are thinking okay, Arsenal have been out of the Champions League and is that maybe the equation for someone like myself.

“The other stuff you can’t control so I can’t worry about it.”
