Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has ruled out all speculations linking him with Arsenal move as Arsene Wenger replacement.

Wenger, who has been the Gunners manager since 1996, has recently announced that he will step down at the end of this season.


Former Liverpool boss Rodgers is one of a number of managers who are considered by the Gunners as potential replacements for the Frenchman.

However, the Northern Irish manager has played all reports down insisting that he now has the best job in the world.

“It’s the longest shortlist I’ve ever seen! I woke up here on a Monday morning as the manager of Celtic, and I’m in the best job in the world. Believe it or not, the sky is blue here in Glasgow, I absolutely love it here,” Rodgers told talkSPORT.

“I’ve got huge respect for Arsenal as a club. When I started my coaching career Arsene was just coming into the club and I learned so much in that period as a young coach watching him, so it’s a club I’ve got huge respect for. But I’m so happy here at Celtic. I’m in a job I love, it’s a huge club with big expectancy and big pressure.”

“I would love to work in the Premier League again one day, but I’m hopefully going to coaching for another 20-odd year. The board has been so supportive of me here and, from the first day I walked in, the supporters have given me everything. I feel a loyalty to them to ensure we keep moving the club forward and keep progressing.”


Rodgers, who won two Scottish Premiership titles with Celtic, has been in the Premier League three years ago.

The 45-year-old has managed Chelsea (youth), Watford, Reading, Swansea City and Liverpool before joining the Scottish side in 2016.
