Fans have to fear unexpected aspect which could cause managerial upheaval at Celtic Park

COMMENT

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has reassured Hoops fans that he will not be leaving the club in the near future – but can he keep his word for the long-term?

He made the claim in an interview with the Daily Mail, where he stated that “I’m not in any rush” to leave the Hoops.

However, there is one aspect of the job which few people talk about which may lead to managerial upheaval in the East End of Glasgow: boredom.

There is every chance that Rodgers could get bored of playing the same teams, in the same poor stadiums, on the same poor pitches, four times a season.

That must stop being appealing after a while, even to a born winner like Rodgers.

There is also the fact that if the Hoops win a second domestic treble this campaign – which they must be overwhelming favourites to do – he will have made history, as no Scottish team has ever done that before, so where does he go from there?

Next season could well see Rodgers putting European ties to the forefront of his campaign, especially if a second consecutive treble is won.

He will have already conquered Scotland – twice – and now it will be time to have a real go in Europe, in both the Champions League and the Europa League, if they make it.

Hopefully for the Hoops faithful Rodgers stays in Glasgow to help the Hoops complete their fabled quest for ten titles in a row, but it wouldn’t be much of a shock if boredom drove him to leave before then.
