For his second tenure as the club’s manager, Brendan Rodgers has agreed to terms to take over as Celtic’s new manager.
After winning a record-setting domestic triple with the club, Postecoglou recently departed the Hoops for the open position at Tottenham Hotspur. And Rodgers, who won the domestic triple twice with the team during his previous tenure as Celtic manager, is the other candidate to succeed Postecoglou.
Sources said last week that Dermot Desmond, the owner of Celtic, had discussions with Brendan Rodgers about the open managerial position and had promised to pay for a team makeover at the former manager’s request. Rodgers formerly managed Liverpool and Leicester City.
John Kennedy, who turned down an offer from Postecoglou to work at Tottenham Hotspur in order to work with the Northern Irish coach at Parkhead, will remain at the club to serve as a coach alongside Rodgers.
Rodgers has been jobless since April when Leicester City fired him due to a bad run of results. However, once Rodgers left, the Foxes’ situation did not get any better as the team was demoted from the Premier League.
Now in charge at Celtic, Rodgers will be looking to bring Scotland even more hardware.
