FORMER Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp has heaped praise upon Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers.
The SKY TV pundit admitted he has been impressed by the work of the ex-Anfield gaffer and his deeds with the Parkhead side since taking over in May 2016.
Redknapp said: “Brendan Rodgers has done a remarkable job at Celtic, where he is now unbeaten for a British record 63 domestic games.
“Only a fool would say that his achievements are merely down to the standard of the Scottish Premiership.
“Brendan’s greatest asset is improving players. He has helped transform Kieran Tierney into one of the best left-backs in Britain.
“He has galvanised his captain Scott Brown, who was so impressive against Bayern Munich in the Champions League last Tuesday.
“People forget what a good job he did at Liverpool.
“After 79 league games ,Jurgen Klopp has 143 points – eight fewer points than Rodgers at the same stage of his Anfield career.”
