Brendan Rodgers makes huge claim over future of Celtic youngster
By John Reid
Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has said that both he and Kieran Tierney could stay at Celtic for another six years.
Talking at the launch of his autobiography, as quoted in The Scottish Sun, Rodgers was asked if he plans to stay at Celtic to win 10 titles in a row.
“Well I signed for another four years so, you’d like to think so,” he replied.
“Kieran Tierney signed for another six-years so it might need to be 12!”
Celtic currently sit on six titles in a row, only four away from breaking the nine in a row record set by the Hoops in the 1970s and Rangers in the 1990s.

Despite what Brendan Rodgers has said about Kieran Tierney’s future, sooner or later it seems that a bid will be tabled for Celtic’s highly-rated left-back. Tierney’s superb performance against Bayern Munich is bound to attract the attention of some of Europe’s biggest clubs, and with reports yesterday emerging that three English Premier League sides are interested in the 20-year-old, Brendan Rodgers and the Celtic board may soon have a decision to make. If the player does leave Celtic in the summer the only saving grace for the Hoops will be the huge transfer fee they will receive, after Tierney signed a new contract this week.
