Brendan Rodgers won’t be returning to Celtic as manager according to Stephen McGowan.
The former Leicester City manager has been strongly linked with a return to Celtic but according to the reporter with the best track record on all things the Irishman isn’t on the four man shortlist.
Rodgers left Leicester City at the start of April but it appears that returning to Scotland isn’t an avenue that he is considering as he waits for his next move.
There has yet to be anything official from Celtic or Spurs on the future of Ange Postecoglou but it seems to be only a matter of time before the deal is completed with compensation heading Celtic’s way.
Updating the situation in the Daily Mail McGowan writes:
An early bookmakers’ favourite, Brendan Rodgers will not be returning to the club where he enjoyed huge success before walking out for Leicester City in February 2019.
West Ham boss David Moyes was interviewed for the post before Rodgers took control in 2016 and could come back into the running if he leaves the Hammers after tomorrow night’s Europa Conference League final.
There is a very 2021 feel to that list with the exception of Kjetil Knutsen.
When Neil Lennon left Celtic in February 2021 it took Peter Lawwell to find a successor, now the spotlight is on his successor, Michael Nicholson to come up with a high calibre appointment ready to pick up on the handover left behind by Postecoglou.
