Rodgers agrees long-term deal to return to Celtic

Brendan Rodgers has agreed terms on a long-term deal to return to Celtic as manager.

It is understood the paperwork is being finalised and an announcement is expected this week.

The 50-year-old won seven trophies during his first spell in Glasgow, including back-to-back domestic trebles, but left for Leicester City midway through the 2018/19 season - much to the frustration of many Celtic fans.

Rodgers is understood to have agreed a deal in excess of his previous Celtic contract, which will make him the highest-paid manager in the club's history again.

Celtic's board will back Rodgers in the transfer market to help him deliver domestic success and compete in the Champions League, Sky Sports News has been told.

He will replace Ange Postecoglou, who won consecutive league titles and a domestic treble last season before joining Tottenham
