“I hope I can come back and make you very proud,” Brendan Rodgers message to Celtic fans

Ahead of tomorrow afternoon’s Celtic fan media conference Brendan Rodgers has sent a message to the Celtic support via a short Celtic TV video released this afternoon by the club. And clearly there is an appreciation that not all supporters are ready to move on for the events of February 2019, with the Green Brigade posting a photograph of their banner from Tynecastle in the first match after Rodgers left for Leicester City.

The majority of Celtic fans appear to be excited by and welcome the re-appointment of Brendan Rodgers who won all seven of the trophies he competed for and that included two trebles and an incredible Invincible season. It’s something that’s got to be addressed, so that all supporters are on side, which will happen sooner rather than later. This is all part of the process.

Here’s what Brendan Rodgers has had to say to the Celtic support via today’s Celtic TV video…

“Hi, it’s Brendan here. I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the support that I’ve had since I’ve been named the manager here again at Celtic. I’m very proud and very honoured to be given the opportunity and hopefully I can repay the faith of Derrmot and the board for accepting me back to the club.

“But also very, very importantly to you, the supporters. Celtic Football Club is about the supporters, and I hope I can come back and make you very proud, and also very importantly to make you dream again.

“We did that in our first time together and now hopefully going forward we can dream again. So I really look forward to it and look forward to being together as one from the very first day of the season and let’s make this a memorable season for us all.

“Take care and Hail Hail!”
