Rodgers confirms big-money offer from PL side to lure Celtic boss back to England
Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has claimed Premier League sides have recently contacted him about a move back to England, offering him more money than he gets at Celtic.
However, Rodgers has revealed that he is committed to staying at Celtic Park.
Rodgers has been a huge success since taking over at Celtic Park in May 2016, leading the Hoops to their first domestic treble since 2001 and their first unbeaten domestic season since the 1890s.
Celtic are also on a record British run of 67 domestic matches unbeaten, with the latest game a 5-1 victory over Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership.
The Bhoys are also on the verge of clinching a place in Europe after Christmas for the first time in three seasons, as they currently sit three points and three goals ahead of Anderlecht in the race for Europa League football.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Rodgers revealed that although Celtic may have been contacted by teams in England, making a return to England isn’t on the agenda at the moment.

He said: “Yes, I have been aware of possibilities, as have the club, but it’s not on my radar at all. The process of how I heard doesn’t matter so much.
“The (English) Premier League is brilliant. I loved it there. I worked with two great clubs. This is not to say I won’t go back there one day, but there’s not even a notion that I’m thinking of it (at the moment).
He continued: “I might get more money elsewhere but what I’ve learnt is that happiness is the most important thing. As long as I feel that way, then I’m really happy to be here.
“My ambition is for Celtic. I’m not worried about myself and my own ambition. I want to sustain the level of success for as long as I can.”
Celtic’s next game is against Anderlecht on Tuesday night, as the Bhoys continue their extremely busy schedule in December, which also includes away games to both Hearts and Hibs and home matches against Aberdeen and Rangers.
