Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed he rejected an offer to leave Parkhead and move to China during the summer.

After securing a second successive domestic treble, the former Swansea and Liverpool manager was the subject of an approach from a Chinese club but was happy to stay in Glasgow.

“There was an offer. My concentration was with Celtic.

“At the end of the season, what was important was to get away, recover from a really tough season and prepare for the next season.

“Nothing (in the offer) made me think otherwise.”
