Title just the beginning for Rodgers' big plans for Celtic

Celtic's latest Scottish Premiership title was delayed after nearest rival Aberdeen beat Dundee 7-0 on Friday.

Rodgers and Celtic secured the title with the weekend win at Hearts, with the club hoping to emulate Arsenal Invincles and go an entire season unbeaten in the league.

Speaking on Match of the Day 2 Extra, Didi Hamann said Rodgers' first season at the club is enough to see him emerge as a contender to take the hotseat at Arsenal, should Arsene Wenger step down as manager.

Brendan Rodgers admits he will look to return to Premier League management one day - but insists he has no immediate plans to leave Celtic.

Celtic are still on course to win the domestic treble, having beaten Aberdeen in November to win the League Cup.

Celtic have swept all before them in Scotland.

The season is not yet done for Celtic, though. I enjoy playing, winning trophies and that is why I want to stay here.

Celtic don't exactly pull up any trees in Europe, bar one or two eye-catching performances, but domestically they have been unstoppable, the earliest side to become champions of Scotland in 88 years with eight games still to go.

"I have to give them massive credit.

I would be very harsh to say there was a better way to do it because how we've played and how we've worked has been incredible". "That's something we've tried to impose onto the players and their mentality, and we always have to look to be better".

Hearts scrambled forward for the first 15 minutes or so but once Sinclair exchanged passes with Patrick Roberts for the first and then ran onto a Roberts pass for the second three minutes later, the outcome was in no doubt. Sinclair's penalty was comfortable and he clutched the matchball gleefully after. "Yes, we could", said Rodgers after Sunday's 5-0 win over Hearts that clinched the title.

Tierney is one of six Celtic players to be included in the last game - along with Craig Gordon, Scott Brown, Stuart Armstrong, James Forrest and Leigh Griffiths.

The Scottish club have been shrewd in the transfer market over recent years, with the additions of Scott Sinclair and Moussa Dembele last summer taking the team to another level.
