No change to Celtic recruitment policy, claims Rodgers

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers insists nothing has changed in the recruitment process at Parkhead.

Following last week’s 3-1 win over Rosenborg in the first leg of the second Champions League qualifier at Parkhead, the Northern Irishman was asked about the report claiming 19-year-old Australia playmaker Daniel Arzani was set to leave Melbourne City to join Manchester City with Celtic ready to take him on loan.

Eyebrows were raised when Rodgers said: “I can’t tell you anything about him or anyone else”, while confirming the Scottish champions had identified the youngster as a possible target.

At the media conference ahead of the return game in Trondheim, Rodgers said, with regards to recruitment: “It is exactly the same as when I walked in.

“We will look to find players that fit the profile of the club and very importantly, the profile of how we play and once we have found the player, it will be over to the club to try to do a deal to bring the player in.

“So it is as simple as that. There is no confusion, there is no change.”
