CHRIS DAVIES arrived at Paradise today and held his first press conference as Celtic’s new Assistant Manager.
Chris, who has worked closely with Celtic’s new manager Brendan Rodgers over a number of years at both Swansea and Liverpool, joins Celtic from Reading FC where he was first-team coach.
Brendan Rodgers was clearly pleased when announcing that Celtic had appointed Davies as his Assistant, saying: “I am delighted to bring Chris to Celtic, he is a magnificent coach and someone I know will make a hugely positive contribution to the club.
“He is ready and prepared for the challenge at Celtic and I know that Chris, like myself, can’t wait to get going next season.
“He has worked with me previously, he is someone I know and trust and he will be a great addition to my team and to the club.”
Today we heard more from the former Reading first team coach, who maybe needs some advice on the type of shoes to wear at Parkhead!
He was clearly impressed by the welcome Brendan received a week past on Monday when over 13,000 turned up at Celtic Park to welcome the new boss. Chris said: “Celtic is a massive club and Brendan Rodgers’ unveiling last week was sensational. It’s a great honour to be here.”
Explaining why he’s left Reading to take the Assistant Manager’s job at Celtic Chris said: “I’ve worked with Brendan for a long time and as backroom staff we bring a lot of experience to the top level of the game.”
