By Harvey Byrne

Celtic fans on Twitter have absolutely destroyed former Rangers winger and Sky Sports pundit Neil McCann after manager Brendan Rodgers agreed a new deal at the club.

The 44-year-old ex-Liverpool boss has proven a huge success in Scotland and has already helped the Hoops to a league title as they sit unbeaten in the Scottish top-flight after 31 matches.

The Northern Irishman’s success had brought his future in Glasgow into doubt and many fought he may have been tempted by a return to England.

One of those was McCann, who stated while on Sky Sports that he believed Rodgers leaving Celtic would throw a “spanner into the works” for the club.

However, the Hoops made a huge statement of intent on Friday afternoon by announcing that Rodgers had agreed a new four-year deal at the club.
