The Northern Irishman has also agreed huge bonuses for European success.

Boyhood fan Rodgers jetted to London yesterday from his holiday pad in Majorca to meet up with Hoops chief executive Peter Lawwell and other high ranking club representatives and formally put pen to paper on his astonishing contract.

The 43-year-old had already twice met with majority shareholder Dermot Desmond and verbally agreed to being Celtic’s 18th manager in 128 years.

It’s a massive coup for Desmond and Lawwell to lure the former Swansea City and Liverpool boss to Parkhead.

High-profile Rodgers, who had been out of football for seven months after his Anfield sacking, will earn FOUR times what Ronny Deila did.

Ex-Celtic boss and captain Neil Lennon and former Hoops defender and Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes ended up being Rodgers’ prime rivals for the post.
