The Northern Irishman is thought to be on the radar of both Newcastle United and Leicester City after winning six trophies out of six to begin his career in Scotland.

Despite the riches of the EPL, it is believed that both clubs will balk at the demand and look to negotiate a smaller fee if they do require Rodgers’ services.

Celtic got off to a slow start in the 2018/19 Ladbrokes Premiership amid talk of unrest between the head coach and the board.

However, they’ve managed to win their last four domestic matches, including netting ten goals combined in the most recent victories over St Johnstone and Hibs. They now sit in second place, three points behind Hearts.
