Rodgers is said to have reached a deal for a greater value than his previous contract with Celtic. Thus, the 50-year-old strategist became once again the highest-paid coach in the club’s history.
The Celtic leadership will back Rodgers in the transfer market to be able to look forward to titles next season and compete in the Champions League.
Rodgers was appointed to replace Ange Postecoglou. The Greek leader won 2 consecutive domestic championships and the domestic treble last season before landing at Tottenham.
Celtic players will return to pre-season training at Lennoxtown headquarters before taking part in their summer tour of Japan in July. Postecoglou’s former team, Yokohama F Marinos, will be Celtic’s first opponent. Then there will be a clash with Gamba Osaka.
Celtic will continue their Asian tour with a clash with Wolves at the Suwon World Cup in South Korea.
Celtic will begin their journey to defend their Scottish crown in the first week of August. The Champions League group stage will kick off around the second half of September.
