Brendan Rodgers took advantage of the international break to head back to Carnlough.

The hoops boss enjoys incredible support from across Ireland with the supporters club in Carnlough delighted to host their most famous son.

At every home match the Carnlough Bhoys send a bus over to support the hoops with Rodgers often taken time out after the match to keep upto date with the fans from his home town.

Rodgers will be back at Lennoxtown on Monday as he begins the preparations for an epic Champions League clash against Paris St Germain in ten days time.

Hamilton Accies will be Celtic’s opponents on Friday night on SPFL duty but with the most expensive forward line in all time due to visit Glasgow four days later Rodgers will already be thinking about Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

The fitness of Dedryck Boyata will have a big bearing on Rodgers’ plans with the Belgian defender getting close to fitness after being injured against Slavia Prague at the start of July.
