The Celtic manager Brendan Celtic makes Rodgers reveals he is very honored to be the coach in charge of the Celts as the marks his 100th match milestone with the Bhoys as they play against Hibernian in the league show down to day.
After Brendan joined his boyhood dream team (Celtic) 20 months ago, he has had quite an intriguing time as Paradise Lord. With a wooping unprecedented invincible treble in his first season, along side a qualification to the UEFA Champions League.
Already the Bhoys negotiated on the UEFA Champions League qualifier for the second year successively and also have achieved their set out target of European football beyond Christmas. Domestically the Bhoys have bagged the League Cup, with an outstanding points lead they top the table and have advanced into the rounds of final 16 of the Scottish Cup.
Speaking to this week’s Celtic View, Brendan Rodgers spoke on the adventure he has been entangled with as the Celtic boss as all 99 games thus far he had managed with the Hoops has been special.
“I wasn’t aware of that milestone,” he said in an exclusive interview “But every game has been a privilege to manage the club. I still find myself from time to time looking around the stadium when it’s full and empty and just being really appreciative of the opportunity I have been given here.
“It’s always a pressure job, managing the big clubs but managing the club here is a huge honour for me.
“Like I say to the players, I want to produce quality football – but quality without results is pointless and results without quality are boring. What I try to find is to get the team to play with a quality that excites the supporters and allows us to win games and, thankfully, over the course of that time, we have won more and played well in a lot of those games.
“We have to keep improving that consistency and that quality and it’s a nice landmark and hopefully we can mark it a win.”
Brendan Rodgers have had several heroic and memorable periods as the Celts boss spent time with the Hoops but his most cherished period was winning of the Scottish Cup final last May which ranked him amongst previous Celtic manager, Jock Stein and Martin O’Neill who had gained the treble. It was at that point it got dawn on him that he had made history with the Celts.
“There have been so many highs,” he said. “I look back on the final and I am much clearer in my thinking of it now when I see the images of it and the ending. All the talk before the game had been about emulating Jock Stein and Martin O’Neill, and there is a moment when the goal goes in and I put my hands to my face when there was probably a realisation that this could be the moment.
“There was a lot of talk before the game of what could happen and following in the footsteps of these great people, and you can never think of that as you have to focus on the job. At that one moment, winning that and looking at the scenes on the podium really capped off an incredible season for us.
“It’s very hard to follow that, a season where you have been invincible in terms of results and winning three trophies and creating the most wins ever in a league competition, with 33, and scoring the most-ever goals, with 106. Rod
“It’s very hard to follow that season but the players have done remarkably well in looking to follow that up. But that was probably a moment I think back on and think, ‘we did it’.”
