According to Scottish managers and players, the job of coaching Celtic is way more important than English Premier League’s Leicester City.
After Claude Puel was sacked by Leicester City, the first runner-up for the position is Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers.
But he has already ruled out any movement, and he is being backed up by many in Scotland.
“With all due respect to Leicester, Celtic are a much bigger club but the finances that are on offer mean that Leicester can operate at a different level and they’re in the English Premier League, which is an attractive proposition as well,” former Scotland national team midfielder Michael Stewart told the BBC.
“Is Brendan Rodgers going to be interested? I would imagine he would probably be quite keen to listen and hear what they’ve got to say.”
“I would imagine that he would be reluctant to leave Celtic in the middle of a season, especially when they’re on course to do a treble,” he concluded.
Ex-Dundee manager Neil McCann also made his voice heard about the possible job offer for Rodgers.
“I honestly don’t think he will go,” he said.
“I’ll be amazed if does go this season. I think he’ll believe that he’s got business to take care of.”
“I just don’t see him going just now. I just don’t think he’s the type of guy who’d walk out mid-season,” he explained.
“I don’t think there’s a need for him to jump. There are other clubs as well that may come up in the summer.”
“Brendan Rodgers is a very attractive option to English Premier League boards and clubs because of what he did at Liverpool,” he concluded.
