Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers signs new four-year deal after securing Scottish title

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has signed a new four-year deal after guiding the club to the Scottish Premiership title with eight games to spare.

Rodgers is currently tied to the club until the summer of 2021 after a successful first season at Celtic Park which could end up with a domestic treble.

Celtic beat Aberdeen 3-0 in the League Cup final back in November to secure the first trophy of the Rodgers era and a landmark 100th for the club.

Their form in Scotland has been just about blemish-free and they head into the last seven games of the season unbeaten, having won an incredible 28 of 31 games.

Celtic are likewise in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup and will face fierce rivals Rangers at Hampden Park on April 23 for a place in the final.

Chief executive Peter Lawwell told the club’s official website: “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.”
