Brendan Rodgers signs new four-year Celtic deal

Brendan Rodgers has signed a new four-year deal with Celtic.

It comes after the Carnlough man led the club to its sixth successive Scottish Premiership title.

Rodgers said it was an easy decision for him saying he was in a great place professionally and personally.

"It's the start of a journey," he said.

"Hopefully it's just the beginning and there is a lot of work to do."

Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said: "Brendan has made a huge impact at Celtic already. He's an outstanding manager and we believe he is one of the best coaches in Europe, if not world football, and we're delighted that he has committed his future to Celtic."

Brendan Rodgers has already led the team to the Premiership title and League Cup success this season, remaining unbeaten after 38 domestic games, with a Scottish Cup semi-final to come later this month, while also guiding the team into the group stages of the UEFA Champions League.
