Video: Chris Sutton praises Brendan Rodgers Celtic return

Chris Sutton has been praising the Celtic boss, Brendan Rodgers, in his latest episode of the ‘It’s All Coming Up!’ Podcast. The outspoken pundit has revealed that he feels the Irishman “should be applauded” for his brave choice to step back into the fold at Parkhead and believes he was also the best man for the job at the time.

This of course is somewhat different from Sutton’s initial reaction when he heard the news about the potential for Rodgers to come back to Celtic. The Englishman openly admitted at the time he didn’t think it would actually happen for a number of reasons, so was shocked when the ex-Liverpool man headed back up to Scottish football.

In light of his decision to come back for a second spell at the Scottish Premiership Champions, the former Treble-winning Celt has nothing but admiration for the Bhoys manager and feels it really took cojones to come up the road, in light of the way things were left during his first tenure in charge of the club back in February of 2019.

Rodgers is desperate to make some sort of impact in European football with the Hoops on his return, and it was reported widely at the time that this was a big factor in his brave decision to come back to Glasgow’s East End. His first game hasn’t gone so well in the Champions League but there is still time to change the current situation and he will no doubt be relishing that challenge.

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.
