Brendan Speaks To Chris Sutton
Brendan Rodgers has a voice that could make the speaking clock sound interesting. When he opens his mouth, you listen. He has an authority and an aura we haven’t witnessed in a Celtic manager since Martin O’Neill, in my opinion.
His interview last week with former Celt, Chris Sutton, for BT Sport is almost mesmerising.
He speaks of the job he faced when he took over the team from Ronnie Deila, how he had to get the Bhoys up to speed for the all important Champions League qualifiers. How he say what was needed, physically and mentally after the Red Imps match. And how relieved he was to get past Hapoel Be’er Sheva.
Sutton also asks him about the perceived challenge from across the city. A challenge that didn’t really materialise.
When asked about being here for 10 in-a-row, Brendan tells makes it clear he signed a four year deal and is happy, and content with his work and his place of work.
And just to round things off, he speaks of the ‘Holy Trinity’, that exists between the club, the players and the fans, and how important is for us all to stick together.
Interview Two, Harry Brady speaks to Chris Davies
This interview took place around the end of January this year. Celtic were, and still are, flying, sweeping all before us domestically.
With the additions of Moussa Dembele, Scott Snclair and Kolo Toure, to the league winning squad Brendan inherited from Ronnie Deila, assistant manager Chris Davies, gives us an insight into what it takes to get the best out of the players.
How the backroom Bhoys work, their ethos, mentality, passion and constant striving fr improvement, not only from the players but from themselves. And what it means to work for such a great club as Celtic.
Chris also refers to Brendan as an ‘elite manager’ something none of us will argue with.
As much as the interview with Chris Sutton was a ‘must watch’, this podcast from Harry Brady at the Celtic Underground is, in my opinion, a ‘must listen’ to.
