Brendan Rodgers: I'm busy at Celtic.

Celtic's new manager Brendan Rodgers has said he isn't interested replacing Roy Hodgson as England manager.

Hodgson resigned after England were knocked out of Euro 2016 by Iceland in the tournament's last 16.

"I've just landed my dream job. The team I've supported all my life," said Rodgers, who was named Celtic boss last month (May). "I'll be at Celtic, that's for sure.

"I haven't even walked out for my first game," the former Liverpool boss continued: "Imagine me as a Celtic supporter having walked out on the job at Parkhead!

"Is it flattering (being linked with England)? It's football. There are very few professions where one minute you're up, then down, then up again - that's just how it goes.

"If people think I can do jobs at a high level, then that's fine. But I'm busy here, worrying about what I have to do here."

The Northern Irish man is also convinced the next Three Lions boss will be under immense pressure.

"It's a tough job, England," he said as BBC Sport reported. "They've got a lot of good players but there is huge pressure, huge expectancy.

"There is a great group of players there. They've got some wonderful talents in that England squad, but it has been difficult for them at this tournament - and it has been like that for a few tournaments.

"So it's unfortunate how it ended for Roy because he's a good man, a very good coach.

"They now obviously have to appoint someone and look at creating an identity, a way the team can play."
