Celtic Boss Has Held Talks With Top January Target

The 33-year-old midfielder, whose contract is up at the end of the season and who has been linked with a move to Australia, returned after more than a month out with injury as a second-half substitute in last Thursday's 1-0 Europa League win over Rosenborg in Trondheim.

Adam Livingstone came on at left-back before the game restarted and Celtic soon had the ball in the net again, but Filip Benkovic was penalised for a tug on Tom Aldred before netting from a deep corner.

Ahead of the trip to Fir Park to play Motherwell in the Ladbrokes Premiership tonight, Rodgers said: "The team has been in very good condition, they have been playing very well. We have played less games because we have been successful, it's very early and we haven't even completed the first round of games". "The players deserve a huge amount of credit because they've been fantastic since I've come in".

"He still has a big role to play for me".

Strauss's passing comes just two months after she revealed she was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer. TMZ is reporting that former America's Next Top Model star Jael Strauss has died at age 34.

The manager insisted: "We are in a very, very good position as a team and as a club".

Since taking charge of the Parkead club in 2016, boss Brendan Rodgers has won every piece of silverware on offer and this most recent win - the 18th in the competition for Celtic - is the first step towards a domestic treble treble.

He said: "When you are in it, you are always planning forward and trying to think of the next target". We certainly aren't finished yet in terms of what we want to achieve.

The midfielder, who had two spells on loan at the Pittodrie club prior to this season, scored what proved to be the victor with a shot in added time at the end of the first half. We didn't win the first ball, the second, the third, and he scores from a very narrow angle. The Belgium global picked up an injury in the win over the Dons on Sunday, and he will miss the trip to Fir Park, and is already a doubt for the huge showdown with RB Salzburg next week. Rodgers will also be missing Daniel Arzani and Eboue Kouassi, who are long-term absentees, while the game is expected to come too soon for Nir Bitton as well.
