RAFA BENITEZ beat Brendan Rodgers’ team 1-0 on Friday night in the Premier League and Celtic fans quite enjoyed it.
The Newcastle manager who has been heavily linked with a move to Celtic in the summer to replace Brendan Rodgers did his popularity among the Celtic fans no harm by handing the Irishman a home defeat.

Benitez future is still up in the air with the Spaniard’s Newcastle contract coming to an end this summer.
It would cost a lot for Celtic to try and land the Champions League winner and it does seem like more of a pipe dream than anything else.
He has done great things with this Newcastle side and they’re desperate to see him stay. Time will tell where he ends up!
