Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has ruled out suggestions he will be succeeded Arsene Wenger this summer.

Rodgers was the mastermind behind Celtic’s 63-game unbeaten run, which included surviving the full 2016/17 SPL season without losing  a game and the former Liverpool boss has emerged as a candidate to replace the departing Wenger.

The Frenchman recently revealed he will be stepping down and ending his 22-year reign in the summer.

Rodgers watched his Celtic side claim a seventh consecutive Scottish title courtesy of a 5-0 drubbing of Old Firm rivals Rangers yesterday and insists that he is already in “the best job in the world”.

Arsenal celebrate their equaliser at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Speaking to talkSPORT the 45 year-old said: “It’s the longest shortlist I’ve ever seen! I woke up here on a Monday morning as the manager of Celtic, and I’m in the best job in the world. Believe it or not the sky is blue here in Glasgow, I absolutely love it here.”

“I’ve got huge respect for Arsenal as a club. When I started my coaching career Arsene was just coming into the club and I learned so much in that period as a young coach watching him, so it’s a club I’ve got huge respect for. But I’m so happy here at Celtic. I’m in a job I love, it’s a huge club with big expectancy and big pressure.

“I would love to work in the Premier League again one day, but I’m hopefully going to be coaching for another 20-odd years. The board has been so supportive of me here and, from the first day I walked in, the supporters have given me everything. I feel a loyalty to them to ensure we keep moving the club forward and keep progressing.”
