The circus is over, now we can get back to business as usual

Thankfully it’s all went through with no last-minute glitches or change of plans. These things can become frustrating as well and it turns into a complete saga on occasion. See Eddie Howe fiasco for full details please. But without any further ado, the circus is over and we have ourselves a new manager.

May 27th 2017, Hampden – Scottish Cup Final Celtic FC versus Aberdeen; . Celtic Manager Brendan Rodgers

It’s the undeniably successfull Brendan Rodgers. Some have tried to belittle and berate the man who left us in such awful circumstances all those years ago, however, his record here is impeccable, he is a coach of the highest degree, he also makes players undoubtedly better. Oh, and he won Leicester City an FA Cup and finished fifth twice – narrowly missing out on UEFA Champions League qualification with a provincial club. Not bad at all.

He strikes fear into the hearts of opposition parties, particularly those of a blue persuasion that play out of Govan. After all, he did almost single-handedly get us barred from taking over a full stand at Ibrox because they couldn’t handle his adept coaching skills and ability to change a game of football in an instant. Down to ten men? No problem, I’ll stick on another striker and he’ll go and get the winner. Easy peasy.

Brendan Rodgers with his Invincibles…

I am just so grateful that this didn’t drag on and turn into a hullabaloo that had us being made to wait in agony at the outcome; especially if unfruitful. But there’s obviously an eagerness and willingness from everybody involved to make this an auspicious relationship once again. That bodes well going forward. The past always stings, but if we can find a way to move together in the same direction and look to the future with optimism, this could be a masterstroke by the club.

Let’s get to work right enough.

It’s over to you, Mr Rodgers!

About Author

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.
