It certainly does not have the financial riches that are on offer south of the border.
But for Brendan Rodgers, working in the Scottish top flight as the manager of his boyhood heroes gives him something money can’t buy in terms of job satisfaction.
Having guided Celtic to six-in-a-row in a debut season that remains unbeaten in domestic competition, there was speculation that Rodgers could be tempted by a return to England.
But he has shown his commitment to the club he loves by penning a new four-year deal with the Hoops.
While he may grow weary being in another managerial hotseat, Rodgers insists he will never grow tired of winning at Celtic and wants to continue doing so for as long as possible.
Rodgers said: “Happiness is the key. If you’re not happy then, despite what money you can get, you can’t work very well.
Brendan Rodgers led Celtic to their sixth consecutive top flight title
“There’s may be possibilities to have gone to the Premier League. But I would forfeit all of that to be here and happy. This is a club I love and know well.
“I could be a manager till I’m 60, so that gives me another 16 years. But in these next four years I want to give everything to Celtic.
“We will play Rangers six times this season. I am sure there’s a timeline when you might look at it, but you never get bored of winning. There might be other things you want to experience but there’s never been a tired day since I’ve been here at Celtic.
“I drive in here and it’s like driving into the best cathedral in the world. I don’t think I will ever get bored of managing Celtic. But, of course, there might be challenges later on. I was very honoured when the club came to me. It just felt so right. The journey has only just begun and there’s a lot of differences I feel I can make.
“It’s hard to express how I felt when the club let me know they wanted to do this. This just makes me even more motivated to be the best I can be for them.”

When Rodgers joined Celtic last May it was on a one-year rolling contract but having convinced many of his squad – including James Forrest, Tom Rogic and Kieran Tierney – to commit their long-term future to the club, he insists it was important for him to do the same.
Celtic are currently in talks with Stuart Armstrong, while Moussa Dembele has been linked with a multi-million summer move away, but Rodgers feels by showing he’s here for the long haul it can convince players to follow suit.
He said: “I love to improve players individually and within a team. That was one of the key factors for me. That’s why I love to work.
“These are guys I want to commit. I had one year because that was the agreement with the club at the beginning. But I want to see through the stability to stay for three, four, five years. I am here for that. It hopefully shows them that this is the best place for them to be.
“Young Kieran Tierney signed a five-year deal last year and has four years to go. Dembele coming in on four years – I felt it could be for them, for the players who have given me so much, for me to give them something.
Celtic will now be aiming to go the whole season unbeaten
“Hopefully that can be something which can help nourish them for the most important part of their careers.”
Rodgers took Celtic back into the Champions League group stage last season following a three-year absence and he’s driven to make them a force in European football again.
He said: “It is very difficult in the modern game but we must try to do that. That is key for us.
“We are looking at defining a way of playing and working which is now synonymous with that. Getting people excited about it is great. If we can roll that out into European football then that is what we want to do. We know it is tough but that is our aim.”
Meanwhile, Scott Brown has confirmed he is ready to play for Scotland against England in June.
With Celtic in Champions League qualifiers in early July, there were doubts over whether the midfielder would continue his international career.
But he said: “I’ve spoken to the gaffer and I’ve spoken to Gordon Strachan as well. We’ve had a long chat about holidays and that I can play. I believe that, if I’m selected, then I can play against England.”
