Posted by the club’s official Twitter account earlier today, the current Hoops boss took on the challenge of selecting his favourite starting eleven from throughout his lifetime, with a few strict stipulations to be adhered to.
Rodgers was only allowed to choose one member of the club’s historic 1967 Lisbon Lions team, and only one player from the current Celtic team, if he chose to select anyone from his own squad.
The rules definitely helped to make the team have a fair representation from throughout the club’s history, but there’s definitely a few surprising names:
You can only choose:
➖ One Lisbon Lion
➖ One current player

Given the current Celtic team under Rodgers are on the brink of back-to-back domestic trebles, will fans in the future be including several members of the current team?
And what do you make of Rodgers’ selections?
