Brendan Rodgers dismisses Premier League talk for now

Brendan Rodgers has reiterated that he is happy at Celtic although he has not ruled out a move back to the Premier League in the future.

The Northern Irishman has enjoyed sustained success since arriving at Parkhead during the summer of 2016, as he guided the Bhoys to the domestic treble during his first season and he remains on course to repeat that feat this term.

Indeed, the 45-year-old’s impressive work in Glasgow has led to him being linked with a return to the Premier League, where he managed both Liverpool and Swansea in the past.

Rodgers admits he would be interested in a return to England’s top flight later in his career, but for the time being he is enjoying working in his ‘dream job’ with Celtic.

I’m in a position where I’m in my dream job. As a guy from Northern Ireland who supported Celtic and worked in football, I’m living my dream here,” Rodgers said in an interview with the Mail on Sunday.

“I want to work through until I’m 60 and get to a thousand games and I probably know I won’t do the other 500-odd games here at Celtic.

“Between the club and I, we will look at it and see where we’re at. I have to do the best with the resources we have here. That’s not a lack of ambition. That’s me at a club where I have a sense of happiness every day.”

Celtic currently sit 10 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership standings and they will return to competitive action when they play host to bottom club Ross County on Saturday.

Rodgers’ side are priced at 1.17 to emerge from that contest with all three points, while the Highlanders are available at 15.00 and the draw is on offer at 7.50.
