Rodgers: Celtic return feels like home but I need to win again


Brendan Rodgers insists he must win and "prove myself again" after beginning his second spell as Celtic manager.

The Celtic manager received a warm reception from supporters at Celtic Park after being re-introduced ahead of a 3-2 win over Athletic Bilbao in James Forrest's testimonial match.

When asked what it felt like to be back, more than four years after leaving for Leicester, Rodgers said: "Amazing. It feels like home.

"I have to be honest. I have been fortunate enough in my career to have managed some fantastic clubs and some big clubs, but there is nothing giving me the feeling of being back here with people that I would regard as family, and just being in the arena here.

"I am looking forward to it, I am going to relish every second of it. I think going away probably made me realise what I had and I was never sure if I would have that again.

"So, to be able to have the chance to have that again, I am really going to enjoy it, on the pitch, with the players, with the staff, and obviously with the supporters. But for that I need to win and I need to prove myself again."
