Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers revealed he has plans to return to the Premier League in the future, but insists that his immediate focus remains with Celtic.

The Northern Irishman was sacked as the Merseyside club's manager in October 2015 and was replaced by Jurgen Klopp at Anfield. The 44-year-old returned to management after he was appointed the Scottish club's manager last summer.

Celtic clinched their first piece of silverware under Rodgers' guidance when they won the League Cup after defeating Aberdeen in November. They secured the league title after a 5-0 victory over Hearts on 2 April and are on course to complete the domestic treble if they win the Scottish Cup.

The ex-Premier League manager's work at Celtic was hailed by former Celtic and Arsenal man Charlie Nicholas. He backed Rodgers to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, whose contract at the Emirates runs down after the end of the season.

When asked about the Gunners link and his desire to return to England's top flight club competition, Rodgers said: "One day that will be the case but I'm obviously still young as a manager."

"Maybe a few years ago I was super-ambitious... I still am ambitious but being at Celtic makes you reassess. You have to look at what you have got as well."

"As a Celtic supporter, I know what they want and I want to try and give them as much as I possibly can and when I do leave here, leave a legacy that allows for the next guy to come in and hopefully take it on again."

"One day I will look to go back [to the Premier League]. I wouldn't rule out going abroad as well. But at this moment in time my only focus is for Celtic."

"I love it here, I love the life up here and I want to continue to build the club and continue with the success."
