These were the best Brendan Rodgers jokes as Celtic appointed the former Swansea and Liverpool manager on a 12-month rolling contract to replace Ronny Deila.

Rodgers, who has also been boss of Reading and Watford during his managerial career, has stirred excitement amongst the Celtic Park faithful by pledging to produce an entertaining brand of winning football.
