BRENDAN RODGERS has again expressed his love of Celtic while shooting down persistent tales linking him with the Arsenal manager’s job.
Arsene Wenger, 68, will leave the Eimirates after 22 years in charge in the summer and the Hoops boss, inevitably, has been linked with the post.
But Rodgers, enjoying his side’s 5-0 landslide triumph over Graeme Murty’s Ibrox outfit yesterday to seal the club’s seventh successive Premiership title, made it clear he was in no rush to go anywhere.
Quizzed about his future plans on the talkSPORT breakfast show, he replied: “Listen, I woke up here on a Monday morning as manager of Celtic
“Believe it or not the sky is blue here in Glasgow and I’m in the best job in the world. I’m absolutely loving it.
“I’ve got a huge respect for Arsenal as a club. It’s a club when I started my coaching career.
“Arsene was just coming into the club and I learnt so much in that period as a young coach watching him and watching his dignity and his class and how he dealt with everything.
“For me, I’ve always said it. I’m so happy here at Celtic. I’m in a job that I love. It’s a huge club. A big expectancy, big pressure.
“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. So, it’s no time soon.
“I’m so happy. I’ve got a great loyalty with the board here, they’ve been so supportive for me.
“From the first day I walked in here, the supporters have given me everything and I feel a loyalty to them to ensure that we keep moving the club forward and keep progressing.”
