Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell doesn’t think that Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers will be leaving the club anytime soon, although he concedes that the manager’s time in Glasgow won’t last forever.
The Bhoys manager has just delivered the Hoops their second successive domestic treble, and Lawwell believes that Rodgers will want to keep going with the Hoops, to try and make the side a force in Europe.
“There’s no sign of him wanting to move on” he said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“But inevitably, there will come a time he will probably want to.
“I don’t know when that will be, but we hope it will be in many years.”
Rodgers’ next task is to ensure that the Hoops qualify for next season’s Champions League, with the qualifiers beginning in July.
Football Insider verdict
Hoops fans will be delighted to read Lawwell’s comments that Rodgers has no plans to leave the Hoops anytime soon. The Hoops boss has the chance to win 10 titles in a row and make the Hoops a force in Europe before he considers a return to England or any other job that may come up. The Hoops’ results in Europe have been the only real disappoint for Rodgers since he became Hoops boss two years ago, and he will want to put that right. Naturally Lawwell is being realistic when he claims that the Hoops boss won’t be around in Glasgow forever, and that eventually he will want to return to the Premier League, which he almost won back in 2014, but until then the Northern Irishman looks set to continue as Hoops boss for as long as he wants, as he has done a wonderful job so far and has been rightfully lauded by the support and the board.
