Brendan Rodgers set to be named Celtic manager

Liverpool's Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers now 1/3 to become next manager of Celtic after productive talks were held with the Scottish champions

It’s been several months since Brendan Rodgers left Liverpool FC, although it appears that the Northern Irishman is poised to return to management.

Rodgers was previously linked with the then-vacant Swansea manager’s position, although it seems that he will now replace Ronny Deila as the next gaffer at Glasgow Celtic.

Coral offer a best price 1/3 about the 43-year-old taking charge, with Rodgers regarded as a high calibre candidate who has already experienced being manager of a club with an enormous fanbase and expectation levels.

While Rodgers was axed at Anfield earlier this season, his record as Liverpool manager was fairly solid and he came very close to steering them to a Premier League title success during the 2013/14 season.

David Moyes, Neil Lennon and Roy Keane are some of the other names linked with the vacant position, with Celtic wanting a manager who will not only continue to ensure the Hoops are dominant in the Scottish Premiership but also make a splash in Europe.

If Rodgers gets the job, his brief will be to steer Celtic into the Champions League knockout stage and make a decent fist of attempting to reach the last sixteen of the competition.

Much will depend on the funds available to a new manager of Celtic and Rodgers will want assurances on that front before committing himself to a new chapter in his managerial career.
