Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers believes that it is almost impossible to find players nowadays who can commit their futures to a single club. Speaking in a press conference, Rodgers admitted that there is always the temptation of a player leaving his hometown club, should he be offered a substantial increase on his current wages.
He said: “I don’t want to say either/or, really. The time when players were not for sale is long gone. The kid’s [Tierney] signed a long-term deal and you can see the happiness he has here. Having been at the club, there’s something natural that can happen here. But if a player is on X amount of money and he’s offered 5X by someone else and the club also has a big offer to consider then it’s something that will be spoken about.”
