Fromer Celtic star lavishes Brendan Rogers with praise

Former Celtic star Kris Commons has said that he believes that Hoops manager Brendan Rodgers is the ideal example of what a football coach should be like.

In only his first season at the helm of the Scottish giants last season, Rodgers led the side to an unbeaten domestic treble and gained much praise from the football community.

The former Liverpool and Swansea boss Rodgers also led the Hoops to the group stages of the Champions League last season.

Commons, who is without a club after leaving Celtic during the summer, was full of praise for his former manager, saying, “If you had a factory of coaching turning out the perfect coach, I think Brendan Rodgers would be first out the door – he’s that good.

“Bearing in mind he’s only been in the door 12 months, what he’s achieved in the 12 months he’s now put an absolutely huge expectation from the fan-base. If Brendan Rodgers can guarantee Champions League football every year, he’ll probably be the best manager in Celtic’s last 10 years.”

Regardless of what Rodgers has achieved with Celtic, questions will always be raised about the merit of his achievements unless he does something special with the Hoops in European competition or leads a major European club to a major trophy.
