Chris Sutton makes astonishing claim about Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers

The 46-year-old is in his third season in charge at Celtic Park.

Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has told BT Sport that Brendan Rodgers might have taken the club as far as he can.

Rodgers has been heavily backed for the vacant Leicester City job following Claude Puel’s departure yesterday.

A return to the Premier League would surely give Rodgers something to think about, should the Foxes come calling.

Sutton has cited Celtic’s form in European football since Rodgers’ arrival as one reason why he could be tempted to leave Celtic Park.


He told BT Sport: “I can see it happening, yes. We’ll find out now if this really is Brendan’s dream job.

“I just wonder if he has taken Celtic as far as he feels that they can go. European football has been an issue. Maybe Celtic have found their level.”

Leicester have slid down the league table under Puel and the Frenchman was sacked following a 4-1 drubbing to Crystal Palace.

There is potential in the East Midlands though, with the Foxes boasting some good, young players.

Sutton believes a mixture of that and the Celtic hierarchy not backing him could prove decisive.

He continued: “It’s a very very attractive job in terms of having some fantastic young players.

“But we’ll see how much Celtic want to keep him. Are they going to back him? We’ve talked about short-term loans, losing the centre-back partnership in the summer. At the moment, I think Brendan will go.”
