Rodgers enjoyed several successes against Wolves during a friendly on Saturday, while it confirmed his new side have an increased weight of responsibility this season.
He wants to grasp every opportunity during this season and is hungry to win big in his second spell at Celtic.
As is customary in a transfer window, Celtic have appointed Mark Lawwell – son of former Parkhead CEO Peter Lawwell – as head of first team scouting and recruitment. Lawwell previously served as City Football Group scouting and recruitment manager, overseeing Manchester City, New York City FC and Melbourne City.
At City he oversaw four clubs and Yokahama F Marinos of Japan’s J-League league. At this time he acquired expertise in what might be considered minor markets that other CFG clubs such as Celtic may view as high-value targets.
As far as his role at Celtic is concerned, he will report directly to CEO Michael Nicholson and work alongside manager Ange Postecoglou on player acquisitions. Over a decade with City, he built up an extensive network of contacts that should prove helpful as Celtic look to replace expensive failures such as Boli Boligoli, Albian Ajeti and Vasilis Barkas with better replacements.
Many have made the compelling and valid point that Celtic should prioritize winter transfers over summer ones in order to integrate signings more smoothly, and avoid the anxiety-inducing scenario of waiting until July arrives before opening their transfer window.
McLeish sees himself as working at an iconic club with an extraordinary history, and has set out his aim of “writing my own chapter”. To that end, he wants Rangers to overcome Malmo and provide more “special moments” for claret and blue fans across Europe.
AVTV caught up with former Scotland manager Gordon Strachan to talk about his ambitions at a club he believes is “going in the right direction”.

Rodgers knows he must deliver an outstanding season to win back the trust of those who condemned his sudden departure in 2019, particularly Dermot Desmond who went out on a limb to bring him back and it is time for him to deliver or face even greater scrutiny and pressure from fans and media. Desmond knows this task will not be easy but has enough coaching nous and attention to detail to thrive within it.

O’Neill was angry and used Lennon as an outlet for his emotions – however his ability to combine fiery passion with subdued thoughtfulness contributed significantly to Lennon’s appeal as a player, but would ultimately cause issues off the pitch due to threats made against him and an inability to cope with hardship – it was hard for Lennon to learn this hard lesson of life.
