Rodgers Dismisses Arsenal Link

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has ruled out a return to the Premier League – for now.

The Northern Irishman, who helped Celtic to a seventh successive SPL title at the weekend, has been strongly linked with the Arsenal job left vacant by Arsene Wenger’s imminent departure.

But the former Liverpool and Swansea City boss is enjoying life in Glasgow, and still has three years to run on his current contract.

He said: “I’ve got huge respect for Arsenal. When I started my coaching career, Arsene was just coming into the club and I learned so much in that period as a young coach watching him and his dignity, his class and how he dealt with everything, so it’s a club I’ve got huge respect for.

“Bu the sky is blue here in Glasgow and I’m in the best job in the world. I absolutely love it here.

“I would love to work in the Premier League again one day, but I’m hopefully going to be coaching for another 20-odd years.”
