Next Celtic Manager Odds: Brendan Rodgers returns to Parkhead

 

Update: 20.06.23

Following the recent departure of Ange Postecoglou to Tottenham Hotspur, Scottish champions Celtic have welcomed back former boss Brendan Rodgers who will take charge for a second time.

 

Mixed reaction

Brendan Rodgers has been appointed as new Celtic boss following the departure of Ange Postecoglou to Spurs, however his arrival back at Parkhead on a three-year deal has been met with a mixed reaction. Plenty fans are more than happy to have the Northern irishman back in the hot-seat, however a sizeable section of the support are less than impressed due to the manner in which he left for Leicester City in the middle of the season.

 

Right appointment

Nevertheless despite widespread anger and frustration at the time, the general feeling at the club is that he is the right appointment and fans are generally on board with his appointment.

 

Three-year deal

Rodgers has been handed a three-year deal with the Scottish champions who are huge odds-on favourites to finish the 2023/24 campaign at the summit of the Scottish Premiership table. The former Foxes boss will spend the summer scoring the transfer market ahead of the new season and we can expect to see a host of new arrivals (and departures) as he starts moulding the team to suit his preferred style.

 

Sizeable budget

It’s likely that the Hoops board will provide Rodgers with a sizeable budget so that he can continue the club’s dominance on the domestic scene as well as lift their game on the European circuit.

 


 

Update: 15.06.23

Celtic clinched the Scottish Premiership title at the end of 2022/23 but they have since waved goodbye to popular manager Ange Postecoglou and are on the verge of welcoming back Brendan Rodgers ahead of the new season.

 

Formal announcement

Following on from all of the speculative rumours and headlines of recent days, it now seems that former Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers will be formally announced as next Celtic manager. The Northern Irishman has reportedly been putting the finishing touches to a deal which would see him return to Parkhead and an official announcement could come very soon, the leading UK bookmakers going as low as 1/20 that he is appointed as next Celtic boss.

 

Finalising back-room team

Apparently, Rodgers has been finalising his back-room team and barring any eleventh-hour hitches, he might soon be in charge of the side and preparing for the season ahead. The likelihood is that the club board will provide Rodgers with a significant transfer budget in order to continue the domestic dominance and build for a successful European campaign.

 

Possible candidates

Glen Driscoll and Jack Lyons had been touted as possible candidates and reports now suggest that they will indeed be joining Rodgers at Celtic Park this summer. Chris Davies, long-term assistant of Rodgers, had been expected to make the move north, however he has been linked with a move to Spurs alongside Ange Postecoglou as well as a possible move to Swansea City as manager.

All that is now needed is confirmation of Rodgers taking the position at Parkhead and then a busy transfer window may well be in the pipeline for the Hoops.

Hard act to follow

No matter who takes charge at Parkhead during the summer, they will have a hard act to follow. Celtic have enjoyed a success-laden period and former boss Brendan Rodgers will know this as he is once again linked with a return to his former employers.

 

Linked to several clubs

Rodgers was at Celtic from May 2016 until February 2019 when he moved to then Premier League side Leicester City. Since leaving the King Power Stadium earlier this year, Rodgers has been linked with a move to several clubs although he is now odds-on for a move back to the Hoops before the start of the 2023/24 campaign.

 

Ideal candidate

Rodgers would certainly be an ideal candidate to replace Ange Postecoglou and he undoubtedly represents a far less risky option given his previous success. Celtic appear to be ramping up their search for a new manager and it has been reported that Rodgers has been holding in-depth talks with the club.

 

Leading contender

Numerous other names have been linked with the vacant Parkhead hot-seat but at the time of writing, it seems that Rodgers is very much the leading contender at general odds of just 8/11. Enzo Maresca is another leading candidate at a best price of 2/1 while Kjetil Knudsen is a general 20/1 shot.
