Brendan Rodgers‘ second coming has really captured the imagination of the Celtic fans and the football punditry world.
The Northern Irishman returned to Celtic this week after a four year absence and it’s fair to say it has caused a stir.
But could the departure of Ange Postecoglou, have caused some players to think about their own futures? Could Rodgers help allay their fears about a new manager coming in?
Allan Hutton seems to think so.
Speaking to Football Insider, Hutton said, “I think they will respond well.
“Everybody respects the manager, it does not matter who it is.

“He has got a real good CV, he knows the club, has been down in England, managed big players, big egos as well. It is nothing that Brendan Rodgers will fear.
“Players looking up to him will know that he is a high calibre manager so all the players will want to impress him as well.”
The loss of Postecoglou will definitely be offset with the acquisition of Rodgers.
There is no doubt the Northern Irishman will have the reputation to make players want to play for him.
If Celtic didn’t get someone of the calibre of Rodgers, then I might have been worried that some may want to leave.
But now? I’m confident the Celtic players will all want to see what they can achieve under a proper, elite coach.
