Aaron Rodgers: ‘I’d love to play to 40’ — preferably as a Packer

  Aaron Rodgers: ‘I’d love to play to 40’ — preferably as a Packer The Packers QB acknowledges that he'll likely seek a unique structure to his next contract, perhaps a percentage of the salary cap. No matter the timing or the structure of the deal, he's talking about it because other people have been, too. “It’s only been on my mind because … people have been writing and talking about it a lot,” Rodgers said. “There have been many conversations about it. I think that there’s some merit to looking into where you do a non-traditional contractual agreement. If anybody at this point is gonna be able to do something like that, I think there needs to be a conversation about it.

“It is a huge credit to the players and medical staff.”

“We know we have a long way to go in terms of getting to full capacity but certainly at this stage, to show that hunger and desire to continue to work to the very end, it was a real winning difference.”

“They kept pushing and kept working and they got their rewards. So it was a great credit to how hard they have worked fitness-wise.”

“A clean sheet was important because as you start to tire in the game you can maybe lose a goal cheaply.”

“But we didn’t do that, we concentrated well and scored three very good goals.”

Celtic had to deal with the insane heat during the match, but Rodgers believes that the weather conditions will benefit his side in terms of fitness ahead of the new season.

“It is breathless really. You sense it just standing in it. I thought they coped with it very well.”

Rodgers refuses to rule out third bid for McGinn

  Rodgers refuses to rule out third bid for McGinn Brendan Rodgers won’t rule out another bid for Hibernian’s John McGinn as Celtic step up their pursuit of the midfielder. Neil Lennon confirmed on Wednesday that Hibs had rejected a second bid for McGinn, who has entered the final year of his deal. However, according to the Daily Record, Brendan Rodgers reportedly is preparing a third bid for the midfielder, with Celtic keen to sign the Scottish international. When asked about a potential third bid, Rodgers said via the Daily Record: “I am distant from that, so time will tell.” “That’s something for the clubs to organise. I coach the team, I manage the team. We target players but ultimately any agreements have to be between the two clubs” “We respect John is still very much a Hibs player and unless there’s an agreement… like I say, it’s going to be a difficult one. That’s really between the clubs.” Despite English interest, Celtic are ready to be patient with a move for McGinn, with Celtic believing the player is keen on a move.

Rodgers was thrilled with his side 's performance and the resilience they showed when the Sky Blues put them under extreme pressure and the Liverpool boss "It was a wonderful atmosphere, pitch- side it was incredible, so between us all - players, supporters and staff - it was a great victory for us."

“They will really benefit from that game in terms of fitness and it sets us up well for the next leg.”

“It is just a case of picking the team to win the game but also to get the players developing their fitness.”
