Stephen McGowan has dropped a strong hint that Brendan Rodgers would be a serious candidate to manage Celtic if Ange Postecoglou leaves to manage Spurs.
Back in February 2019 Celtic fans were shocked that their boss had shifted virtually overnight to Leicester City and had succeeded in taking with him three key members of the coaching staff with John Kennedy and Stevie Woods resisting the lure of a move south.
After two top six finishes and an FA Cup win the wheels came off the wagon spectacularly this season with Rodgers mutually consented a few weeks before Leicester were relegated.
Rodgers doesn’t seem to be quoted for the Spurs job which will be a blow to his ego, there could be other, lower options this summer but McGowan suspects that there could be a re-union with Celtic.
Should Brendan Rodgers ever be allowed to manage Celtic again
Absolutely, top coach, he is one of our own
No, nae, never. Can't trust a word he says
The Daily Mail reporter has a long track record of knowing in advance what is going on at Celtic, after some Mills & Boon material he concluded his column with:
If nothing catches their eye, they might even be tempted to turn to David Moyes or a Steve Clarke or a John Kennedy. A steady Eddie who won’t spend every conversation scanning the room for chairmen from clubs in bigger leagues.
Maybe not from all Celtic fans but perhaps ahead of a favoured son of the former CEO now calling the shots as Chairman.
