BRENDAN RODGERS has once again emphasised he is living the dream with boyhood idols Celtic.
The Hoops boss has been linked with top-flight English clubs since his remarkable success at Parkhead following his arrival as Ronny Deila’s successor in May 2016.
But Rodgers, 45, maintained the immense pleasure he gets at being charge at the club as they zero in on an unprecedented double treble.
He insisted: “If you’re happy, ultimately that’s all that matters.
“The money’s irrelevant. You can have X amount of pounds in your bank every month, but if you’re not happy and you’re not finding peace in what you’re doing, it doesn’t really matter.
“I love the Premier League, the quality of the players, the quality of the coaches. There are great challenges.
“But there are arms and legs flying off managers down there.
“I came here because I was asked by the major shareholder, Dermot Desmond, to be the architect of the club.
“I don’t have to control absolutely everything because it is very difficult to do that now in the modern game. I don’t need that.
“But I’m in a position where I’m in my dream job. As a guy from Northern Ireland who supported Celtic and worked in football, I’m living my dream here.”
The former Liverpool and Swansea gaffer added. “I want to work through until I’m 60 and get to 1,000 games and I probably know I won’t do the other 500-odd games here at Celtic.
“Between the club and I, we will look at it and see where we’re at.
“I have to do the best with the resources we have here. That’s not a lack of ambition.
“That’s me at a club where I have a sense of happiness every day.”
