Brendan Rodgers admits Adam Idah transfer isn’t in Celtic’s hands

Brendan Rodgers has admitted that a permanent deal for Adam Idah isn’t in Celtic’s hands as the Scottish Champions do not have an option to buy included in the loan deal for the Irishman.

Speaking ahead of the Scottish Cup Quarter Final, Rodgers told Record Sport that he is excited to work with Idah and will assess the striker’s future at the end of the season.

“I’m excited to work with him. He thrives on the pressure here and has a hunger to improve. So we’ll assess that at the end of the season. It’s not all in our hands.”

Since arriving at the end of the January window, Idah has made seven appearances and has scored five goals and assisting once. The big attacker has displaced Kyogo Furuhashi as first choice striker under Rodgers and will be looking to extend his good run since arriving from Norwich City this afternoon against Livi in the Scottish Cup.
