Brendan Rodgers has piled the praise on Luis Suarez ahead of Celtic’s Champions League game against Barcelona.
Rodgers enjoyed a close relationship with Suarez during his time at Liverpool, which included several high-profile controversies both before and after Rodgers’ appointment.
However, Rodgers chose to praise Suarez’s personality as well as his ability.
“Luis Suarez is one of the most beautiful men you can come across,” said Rodgers.
“He’s humble and works tirelessly. He’s super professional, a family man, and he gives everything for his life as football.
“I had the pleasure of working with him as a human being and as footballer he’s one of the best in the world.
“He came to a world class team and made them better. Barcelona would not be the same without him in the team.”#
