Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that the best is yet to come – while also hinting that Scott Brown could stay longer at the Parkhead club.

The Hoops boss will celebrate his first year in charge of the club this weekend and will mark the occasion by watching his side lift the Championship trophy on Sunday afternoon.

With two games remaining Celtic can create both a new points tally for the current era – the best is 103 from Martin O’Neill’s 2002 team – a tally that the Parkhead side are three points within. Six goals would also allow them to level with the record goals in the league which stands at 105.

For all the milestones this term, Rodgers has maintained that it is just the start of what he wishes to bring to Celtic.

“The exciting part is that it’s only the beginning,” said Rodgers. “We hope we can continue to roll out what we are putting in place here. What we are putting in place here is a systematic approach to our work which will hopefully create a continuum of success.

“I love working with them and some coaches can enjoy working with players but don’t enjoy watching their team – but I love watching my team. I love to see how they take things from the training field into the game and how they have coped with all the various different questions they have been posed this season - and to still see them working as intensely, while the focus, concentration and belief has been great.

“But of course for us, it’s about continuing that and the best time to do that is when you are successful so we need to keep improving.”

Meanwhile, the Hoops boss has also hinted that Brown could remain at Celtic beyond his current deal.

The Celtic skipper celebrated his tenth anniversary this week at Parkhead and although he has ha year left on his contract, Rodgers believes he can continue to impress in the same way he has throughout the current campaign.

“He is still a real influence and he will continue to have that,” Rodgers told the Celtic View. “There is chemistry there between him and I, which should be the case when it is manager and captain. It is a really enjoyable one and our communication is open.

“We both have ambitions for the club and we both enjoy quality in our work.

“For him, I can see him getting even stronger over the next couple of years.

“It’s been a pleasure to work with this season and he’s been a real catalyst for the squad. I genuinely think he can keep and sustain this level over the coming years.”
