ANGE Postecoglou has resigned himself to the fact that John Kennedy won’t be joining him in London after Brendan Rodgers held talks with the Hoops number 2.
Brendan Rodgers is set to make a sensational return to Celtic as the club’s new manager, with an official announcement expected as early as Monday.
One key question that has been resolved is the future of current Assistant Manager John Kennedy.
According to a report by The Sun, Rodgers has persuaded Kennedy to stay on at the club, despite Kennedy’s expressed desire to join former Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou at Tottenham Hotspur.
Celtic had firmly blocked any move to take Kennedy to London, and it now appears that he will remain as Assistant Manager under Rodgers, playing a more ‘critical’ role in the incoming manager’s team.
The impending announcement of Rodgers’ appointment has Celtic fans eagerly refreshing their news feeds for the latest updates.
While Rodgers’ return is sure to cause a split among fans due to the controversial manner of his departure in 2019, there is no denying the quality of the coach. His appointment is a significant coup for Celtic and bodes well for the upcoming season.
