JOINT record Celtic signing แทง บอล ส เต็ ป John Hartson believes the Parkhead club can ensure they hold on to manager Brendan Rodgers this summer – by lavishing the most money they have ever spent on a player on Odsonne Edouard.
Rodgers, who could become the first man to lead a team to back-to-back trebles in Scotland later this month, is one of the favourites to take over from Arsene Wenger at Arsenal at the end of the season.
The former Swansea City and Liverpool manager, under contract with the Ladbrokes Premiership winners until 2021 after signing a four year deal towards the end of last season, has repeatedly stressed he is content in Glasgow.
However, Hartson - who is still, along with his fellow striker and former team mate Chris Sutton, the most expensive player the Scottish champions have ever bought - feels his old club must help him to make progress in Europe to keep him happy.
The Welshman, signed from Coventry City for an outlay of £6 million way back in 2001, reckons retaining the services of Edouard, on loan from French club Paris Saint-Germain until the end of the season, will enable him to do that.
Celtic have first option to sign the gifted 20-year-old – for a fee believed to be in the region of £7 million – and Hartson has no doubts that would be money well spent even though it would be more than Celtic have ever parted with for a player.
"You've now got to back your manager if you want him to continue and take you through แทง บอล ส เต็ ป the next two or three seasons,” he said. “This is a great opportunity for Celtic to go 'Brendan, we love you here, we want you to stay for the next two or three seasons'.
“Shake off every other offer that comes in for him, Celtic can dismiss that, he's our manager. But you've got to be able to back him in the market as well, show him that you'll support him and you're behind him.
“People like Edouard who, with a little more improvement will take you into the group stages (of the Champions League). You need a better quality. Celtic have lots of quality players, but if you can add one or two every year, who have that little bit of extra quality, that's the key. แทง บอล ส เต็ ป
