Brendan Rodgers has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant England manager’s job – and it’s not just Celtic fans who are delighted.
The Hoops boss has yet to take charge of his first game as manager, but has been linked with the England post since the departure of Roy Hodgson.
Rodgers was named Celtic manager earlier this summer and laughed off suggestions he could decide to ditch Parkhead if the FA come knocking.
It’s good news for worried Celtic supporters, but also seems to be music to the ears of many of the England fans waiting to hear who will clean up the Three Lions mess.
Brendan Rodgers ko's England job, aye right so do I Brendan.

@AngeBlue55 Shame that, Rodgers would have been an ideal fit for England. His long list of trophy successes would tell you that ?

I have ruled myself out of the England job.
I'd like to concentrate on winning the Champions League with Celtic.
Then I may reconsider.

Brendan Rodgers has ruled himself out of the England top job. Thank god for that, not sure he has the political acumen to run a country tbh.

I am very pleased Brendan Rodgers has ruled himself out of the England job. And Boris won't be PM. And the sun is shining.

Brendan Rodgers has ruled himself out of the England job. Seeing as the FA are going mad & offering it to anyone, I'm ruling myself out too.

Rodgers is currently in Slovenia with his side on their pre-season tour with the Hoops in line to face NK Celje on Thursday.
The former Liverpool manager is well known for his gift if the gab and has used one word so much during his managerial career that it has become a kind of buzz word.
A buzz word fans love to tease the Celtic boss about and the news he was not interested in the England post prompted one Twitter user to break out the old reliable.
@DeludedBrendan bad character that
