Brendan Rodgers should stay at Celtic despite Aston Villa links

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has been linked with the vacant position at Aston Villa, but he should remain at Celtic instead.

Rodgers appeared to rule himself out of the running and this would be the wisest career move for him.

Although the project at Aston Villa is tempting, he is in a good position at Celtic and should remain with the Scottish Premiership champions.

With Aston Villa’s financial concerns and their disproportionate playing squad, it could be seen as a poisoned chalice.

There is an air of expectation at Villa Park. Aston Villa are a big club and fans feel they should be back in the top flight.

But Steve Bruce was unable to deliver promotion and he has spent a hefty sum of money there.

 

What Rodgers has at Celtic is the chance to win four titles in a row. In fact, he could complete three consecutive domestic trebles with the Bhoys.

This is a chance for the former Swansea City and Liverpool man to etch himself in Celtic folklore.

Moreover, he has the Europa League to focus on.

Aston Villa is an appealing prospect but this job is not ideal and will be harder than it may initially seem.

Rodgers would be best advised to stay put at Celtic, instead of forcing a move to Aston Villa.
