Rodgers says Premier League would be fantastic for Celtic

Rodgers says Premier League would be fantastic for Celtic”

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has told Sky Sports that he believes it would be an awesome experience for his side to test themselves in the Premier League.

The former Liverpool manager, who takes a 56-match unbeaten domestic run into the Ladbrokes Premiership match against Rangers at Ibrox tomorrow, insists that winning trophies and developing players for Celtic is an end in itself.

Celtic will be favorites to win the Scottish League once again this season and Rodgers revealed that he is happy with the way things are going at the club. It would be an wonderful experience for everyone, not just for Celtic but for other teams as well. I don't think it will ever happen because there is so many barriers to overcome.

"Celtic in the Premier League would be an unbelievable story", he said.

"You could take over all the away stadiums - the travelling support where they're allowed would bring 10,000 or 12,000".

"It's the pure scale of the club, if you're talking big clubs, history, supporters, all of that".

"I'd feel for Scottish football if it happened, but when I look at the two Glasgow giants the only real future they have is to get themselves down south". I am here because of Celtic.

"So I think it would be very, very tough for a Celtic and a Rangers to be in there".

"After here if it takes me back to Ballymena United in Northern Ireland or elsewhere overseas or the Premier League so be it. It would be absolutely wonderful, and then you would see the true, real size of a club like Celtic".

SPFL chief Neil Doncaster admitted for the first time in the summer that the door could be open soon for the Old Firm to play in England, adding that UEFA are willing to back the notion.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has little interest in what comes after Celtic on his CV - it could even be Ballymena United.
