FILIP Benkovic is open to a return to Celtic next season, saying his experience at the club has been ‘f*****g unbelievable’.

The defender has had an initial chat with his manager at parent club Leicester City, Brendan Rodgers, about his plans for him next term, but while nothing has yet been decided, the Croatian isn’t ruling out a return to Glasgow.

“We will have to wait and see what happens in the summer and what is the plan for me next season,” Benkovic said.

“We have spoken a little bit about what will happen but not too much as I was just concentrating on Celtic.

“I wouldn’t rule out coming back to Celtic and you never know where life will take you. I don’t know what will happen, but I really enjoyed my time at the club. I am so proud to have played for Celtic and I am so thankful for everything they did for me.

“When I came to the club I expected to win games and be challenging for trophies, but for it to become a reality is incredible. I can’t believe we have managed to do it and it is f*****g unbelievable.

“I am a better player than when I arrived at Celtic. I always want to improve as a player and the club have helped me do that. I have more experience in British football and I will build on this.

“It was a really big honour for me to play with these guys and it was a special way to finish the season. This year at Celtic will stay with me forever and I will never forget it. I am so proud by what we have achieved. I am part of history and no one can ever take that away from me. No amount of money can make you feel like this.

“When the game finished I had a lot of emotions going through me. It was a relief for us to win the treble Treble. We have made the fans happy by achieving this. The guys started this incredible journey two years ago and it makes me feel special to have played a little part in the success. I can only thank the club for giving me the chance to come and play here. The fans have been amazing to me since I came here and this was for them.”
