Celtic round-up: Rodgers targeted, new McGregor deal, Edouard injury latest
As reported by The Scotsman, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is being eyed by Premier League side Leicester City.
Although the Foxes sit relatively comfortably in 12th, the Frenchman is struggling to win over the fans and hasn’t really been able to put together a solid run of results.
Puel has been in charge since October 2017 after replacing the sacked Craig Shakespeare.
New McGregor deal
Hoops midfielder Callum McGregor has agreed a new deal with the club that will see him remain at Parkhead until 2023.
The Youth Academy graduate recently made his 200th appearance for the club.
The news has gone down extremely well with the fans, who believe McGregor has been one of the club’s best players this season.
The playmaker has shown excellent consistency over the last couple of years and will undoubtedly be a big player over the next few campaigns.
Edouard injury latest
Striker Odsonne Edouard was forced off during the 3-0 Premiership win over Motherwell on Wednesday night.
Rodgers said of the youngster, via The Scotsman: “[Odsonne] felt a tightness around his abductor so we’ll assess that in the next 24 hours. It’s where we’re at and there’s not a great deal we can do.”
The Frenchman made way in the first half for Mikey Johnston, and now Rodgers faces an anxious wait to see if he’ll be available for this weekend’s clash with Dundee.
With Leigh Griffiths having taken an indefinite break from football to deal with personal issues, Edouard is the likeliest source for goals and will be needed over Christmas.
