Video: Outstanding Brendan Rodgers Rocky montage emerges ahead of announcement

Celtic supporters are speculating how the club will announce the return of Brendan Rodgers to the club. The Irishman is set to be confirmed as the new manager on a long-term deal as he replaces Ange Postecoglou. Ranging from Danny McGrain or a bag of cans, there is a wealth of opportunities for the club’s media operations to explore.

However, one fan on Twitter has produced an outstanding Rocky montage for Brendan’s return to the club.

A matter of months ago, the very suggestion that Celtic would appoint Rodgers as their manager going into the new season would have been ridiculed.

The 50-year-old was sounded out about a possible return by Dermot Desmond before agreeing to talks with the club. Chief Exec Michael Nicholson and CFO Chris McKay flew to Spain to present Rodgers with a vision for the club, something that is believed to have appealed to Rodgers.

Talks accelerated with both parties keen to secure a return for Rodgers. The Celtic supporter growing up was seemingly conscious of how he may be received given the terms of his exit in February 2019; however, it has been clear that the supporters would celebrate Rodgers’ return given his pedigree as a coach.

The Invincible-Treble winning manager had been set to take an extended absence from football following the departure from Leicester City in April but the opportunity to return to Celtic was too great for Rodgers.
