Celtic will allow Brendan Rodgers to speak with Arsenal about replacing Wenger

Celtic will allow Brendan Rodgers to speak with Arsenal should the club make an approach for the former Liverpool manager.

Arsene Wenger confirmed on Friday that he would step down at the end of the season, bringing down the curtain on his amazing 22-year tenure.

Rodgers has rebuilt his reputation at Celtic after a disappointing end to his reign at Liverpool and he has emerged as a possible candidate to replace Wenger.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Celtic’s majority shareholder Dermot Desmond said: ‘I’m glad he’s the favourite. He’s an outstanding person.

‘We wouldn’t want him to leave but we won’t force him to stay.

‘Hopefully his love for the club and the setup here will enduce him to stay at the club.
