IF Brendan Rodgers could do two things, he’d speak every language and play every instrument. In an ideal world he’d keep Oli Burke beyond the end of the season too. Oliver Burke celebrates after scoring for Celtic But just like his first of those two aspirations, he knows the third is a pipe dream as well. Earlier this week striker Burke said he would be happy to stay at Celtic following the early impact he’s made since joining on loan from West Brom. Hearing that was music to boss Rodgers’ ears — even though he admits there’s little chance of them landing a player who previously cost the Baggies £15million. Asked if Burke staying beyond the end of the season was pie in the sky, Rodgers said: “I think so. It would be great for Celtic if he did. Brendan Rodgers would love to keep Burke “But the reality is that the improvements he will make here over the course of the next six months will probably excite West Brom. “If they get promoted then probably his wages change anyway. So he helps us for now and we help them.” Burke, 21, joined in January and has already netted three goals in five starts. That’s the same number of times he lined up from the off in a year at RB Leipzig and one more than he managed at The Hawthorns. Rodgers has already noticed a big improvement as well as willingness to listen and learn. He said: “I spoke to Malky Mackay about Oliver as he’d spent time with him in Leipzig. Malky gave me a great insight from that experience. “It felt like Oliver needed time. He needed training and help. There’s no doubt there is an absolutely brilliant player in there. “We all know he can run like the wind, he’s powerful and he’s got physique but what did he do naturally? That was the bit we needed shining. Burke celebrates with Timo Weah “There are things he can do better. “In this short period of time I can see a lot of changes in his game without taking away what he is good at, which is running, working and pressing. “He’s good technically and I’ve been delighted with him. It’s a great challenge for us to help him develop and we get the benefit. “That’s what the culture is all about here. “Like most players he just needs confidence and clarity in what his role is. When I saw him he ran too much to the corner flags. “The goal is not out there, the goal is in the middle. “If you look at his movements now, they are inward, running into the goal area. It’s a small change but it’s clarity. “What he’s shown is he’s a learner, a good boy, someone who is hungry to improve but who just needs a clear way of working.” Burke in action for Celtic Burke will likely line up in the Scottish Cup clash with St Johnstone before he and Rodgers turn their attention to Thursday’s last 32 first leg showdown with Valencia at Parkhead. Rodgers spent time at the Mestalla during his formative years as a coach so knows the club and the city very well. He also started learning Spanish around then and is a capable speaker in the language. Rodgers said: “When I was doing my academy director’s licence I did my study on Valencia. Before that I’d been going out as a coach. “I took a reserve Chelsea team out there for a game and I’ve always had good relationships there. “The contacts from a number of years ago I’m still friends with. It’s a beautiful city. I learned a lot. They were very open and there was nothing hidden. “I started learning Spanish when I was at Reading, working at the academy there. I did my first year and went to a college but I was playing at it. “After a year I sat and thought I wasn’t doing enough. The big turning point was when I went to one-to-one lessons. Rodgers on the touchline “Our academy players at Reading went to college and one of the tutors was called Julio Delgado. “He was the father of the tennis player Jamie Delgado and was from Madrid. “We hit it off in the first lesson. I ended up having two lessons a week with him then when I went to Chelsea I continued my studies. “I’ve got a decent idea of what Spanish is. When you learn a language you learn about the culture. I have my own Irish version of it! “At school it was football. It was later in life I looked at language. I always loved and respected people who could just flip into another language. “People will tell you that you have to be in a country to learn a language and that helps but I realised you don’t have to. “I’m learning French at the moment and the correlation between that and Spanish is very close. “If I could do two things in the world I’d speak every language and I’d play every musical instrument.

As you grow older you understand communication is so important. “It’s not perfect but when I set out it was to be able to coach in the language and to be able to speak and greet. “I always think if you speak to someone in their second language you speak to their head. “If you speak in their first you speak to their heart. I’ve always tried to let players see I can try to communicate. PLAY IT COOL Bain taking it day by day in No1 battle with Gordon “Spain is a country I’ve loved going to, having that connection with the people. They appreciate when you can meet halfway on language.” It’s 15 years since Celtic last won a knockout tie in Europe beyond a group stage. That was when Martin O’Neill’s side beat Barcelona. Rodgers added: “People will look at where they are at and the league they are in but we’re really positive about it and hopefully it will be a really good evening.” Keep up to date with ALL the latest news and transfers from Scottish football plus fixtures, results and live match commentary  [bc_video video_id=”6000340702001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Arbroath’s Scottish League One clash with Stranraer abandoned due to high winds “]
