Anthony Joseph delivers surprising update on Brendan Rodgers to Celtic

The Brendan Rodgers to Celtic story is one that has gripped the supporters all throughout the day.

With the news that Dermot Desmond is set to meet Rodgers in London breaking this morning, it did seem to suggest that Celtic were stepping up the hunt to get their new man in place.

And that man clearly looked like Rodgers. Maybe not, according to Sky Sports Anthony Joseph.

It seems that although Celtic are interested in Rodgers as the preferred candidate, we are in fact in no rush to get the deal done.

Joseph tweeted, “Celtic are expected to hold further talks with Brendan Rodgers this week over a potential return as manager.

“He is the preferred candidate, but is considering various options for his future.”

“Celtic are in no rush and are also considering other targets, including Enzo Maresca.”

Looking at the media frenzy this morning and this afternoon, you would be forgiven for thinking that Dermot Desmond is moving heaven and earth to get Rodgers.

But instead, it seems that we are keeping our options very much open.

No doubt this story will develop as the day continues but the Celtic fans will need to remain patient as it looks like we have a bit to wait yet before we find out who is taking over from Ange Postecoglou.
