Gerrard launches furious touchline outburst as horror tackle on Barisic sparks chaos scrap Latest Scottish football news As of yet, Rodgers has made no indication he wants to leave Celtic, but Sutton believes the Northern Irishman is hoping for a change of scenery.In his Daily Record column, Sutton writes: “Rodgers is a superb Celtic manager. Whatever you think of what he’s said at times this season, to appreciate his work you just have to think the state the club was in when Ronny Deila walked out the door.“To win one treble was special. To win two in succession and go through one of those seasons Invincible is astonishing.“Things haven’t started ideally this term but Rodgers is still top drawer and the man to lead the club. 2 Celtic’s transfer business angered supporters – especially the deadline day sale of Moussa Dembele – a minority of whom have called for Rodgers’ head in the early weeks of the campaign.Despite the apparently fractious relationship between Rodgers and the club’s fans, the former Liverpool manager has remained faithful to Celtic amid interest in him from number of clubs south of the border.He was said to have been a target of Arsenal’s before they appointed Unai Emery earlier this year, while he was also reportedly approached by Aston Villa over their vacant managerial position at the beginning of this month.Furthermore, it was claimed last week that Newcastle have lined up Rodgers to replace Rafa Benitez, should the Spaniard fail to turn around the club’s woeful form that sees them without a win in the Premier League this season.

He’s getting mentioned for every job going these days and there has to be a chance that one of them further down the line might tempt him.“My own gut feeling is he wants a change but I can’t say I’ve a definitive idea of what Rodgers is thinking.”last_img
