Rodgers has been placed among the favourites for the task of succeeding Ronny Deila when the Norwegian steps down at the end of the season.

When the prospect of taking over at Parkhead was put to him, the Northern Irishman told Sky Sports News HQ: "Well, it's an incredible club, a club that family and everyone support.

"Obviously the league isn't so competitive but Celtic are one of the great iconic clubs in the world, a huge club.

"I think Ronny has done a great job there, it looks like they will go on and win the title so that is two titles in a row.

"So I'll be sad to see him go but there is an opportunity for somebody there to go to a great club."

When asked directly if he could be the man, Rodgers said: "At this moment of time I'm just enjoying my time off and I'll wait and see what offers come in and, at this moment, there is nothing concrete.

"I'm just really enjoying the rest. I have had no concrete offers but certainly in the summer I want to get back to work again.

"I've had a great break, enjoyed it and I'll be refreshed and ready for the summer."
