New manager Brendan Rodgers received a warm welcome from thousands of Celtic fans.


His time at Liverpool FC may have ended in total disaster, but Rodgers will have the opportunity to lead his new team to the Champions League.

Former manager Ronny Deila soon learnt that losing the Old Firm Derby against Rangers FC is unforgivable.

Despite winning Celtic’s fifth Scottish Premier League, the Norwegian was unable to keep his job after two failed attempts in the Champions League.

“The first game I went to was 1984, it was a friendly, Celtic versus Finn Harps over in Ireland, that was my first memory.

“I was 11 years of age and from then I have been in the Celtic family with many relations, brothers, cousins, uncles all throughout the world, huge supporters and it is very much being their life.

“I am very lucky to be able to step out of the stands and onto the sidelines and manage the team.”

He is often regarded as one of the dirtiest, old school midfielder’s in the game. But Joey Barton really has done the unthinkable.

The Englishman has decided to give up playing with recently promoted Championship side Burnley, to play in the Scottish Premier League for Rangers FC.

“When I first found out there was an opportunity to come here, that got the blood pumping,” said Barton.

“I’m fully aware of the situation the club has been in for the last few years but to be part of a group that is going to put this club back where it belongs was an opportunity, that if I didn’t take, I would probably have regretted it for the rest of my life.”

He’s already copping flack for this comment he made on Twitter four years ago.
