I'm at Celtic to stay, says Brendan Rodgers

By Graham Luney

Brendan Rodgers says he's relishing the pressure at Celtic and speculation linking him with other jobs doesn't interest him.

The treble-winning Celtic manager was at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast last night to promote his new autobiography 'The Road to Paradise'.

Before fans watched the interview, conducted by fellow Ulsterman Eamonn Holmes, the former Liverpool boss said: "I knew I would be tested at Celtic because you have to win every game.

"There is no other club in Britain that has that. I could be at Liverpool and if I draw away from home it is a good result. It is different at Celtic because of the expectation and demands.

"I signed a new four-year deal with Celtic and I hope I can be at Celtic for that time. In modern football now there is lots of speculation. As a manager, one day you are the devil and the next you can walk on water."
