Kennedy: Rodgers return made me pick Celtic over Spurs

Celtic assistant manager John Kennedy admits Brendan Rodgers' return was enough to convince him not to follow Ange Postecoglou to Tottenham.

Postecoglou was keen to take the 39-year-old with him to North London after he quit the Scottish Champions in May to take charge at Spurs.

Kennedy has played a vital part over the last nine years in Celtic's incredible trophy success and dominance of Scottish football.

The former Celtic defender, who was also Celtic caretaker boss in 2021 following Neil Lennon's departure, told Sky Sports News why he decided to stay in Glasgow.

"I've been there a few times when managers have changed, there's the uncertainty. You never know what's around the corner or if the club are in discussions with other people," said Kennedy who was a first-team coach during Rodgers' first spell

"I was in close contact with Ange and there were different possibilities, but Brendan was coming back to Celtic, the club and Brendan wanted me to stay and be part of this going forward.
