Evaluating Brendan Rodgers reign at Celtic so far


When Brendan Rodgers took over the reign at Celtic, he was on the hope to help make Celtic a force as he was also on the move to salvage his name. After a disappointing departure at Liverpool, the 44-year-old gaffer is desperate to redeem his name.

When he took over at Celtic, the club was a good club and a force to reckon with domestically, so the target is to take them to the next level.

This might seem very simple on paper but it is a difficult job that has not help most Celtic managers stay long on the job. He has done a decent job so far relative to past mangers. Four straight domestic trophies on the bounce is a great a achievement to behold.

The great achievement of going 69 games unbeaten in domestic competition is a record that will stand for years to be matched by any manager in Scotland.

He has put the whole of Scotland at his feet. His attacking style of football is another that the fans admire about their team.

The love he has at Celtic Park was obvious at the club last AGM in which the fans asked him if he will stay at the club for at least 10 years and he replies that he hope so. The way he has infused young players like Moussa Dembele into the team is that is admired across the country.

He however has one job undone at the club yet. He has not been able to establish the Hoops as a club to reckon with in Europe, either the Europa or champions league. Going forward at, that is a target the Northern Ireland man will love to add to his resumè. This could be the last thing he has to prove before he gets his next big job in top European countries.
