Ex-Rangers star David Weir gives Celtic hope in battle to keep Brendan Rodgers from Leicester City’s clutches

David Weir has claimed Celtic are bigger than Leicester City.

Former Rangers defender David Weir has weighed in with his opinion on the latest Brendan Rodgers rumours.

And his comments have surely offered Celtic hope that Rodgers will turn down the chance to leave in favour of committing to the club.

Leicester City have identified Rodgers as their ideal managerial replacement for Claude Puel and are willing to pay £6m to land him, as per The Sun.

 

But Weir has claimed that Celtic are a bigger club and a more attractive option than Leicester, BBC Sport reports.

Weir, who spent his final five years of his playing career at Ibrox, believes it would take a “really, really top job” to convince the Northern Irishman to leave.

He said: “I think the Celtic job’s a bigger job than the Leicester job at this present time. But I think Leicester’s an attractive job because it’s in the Premier League. The Premier League’s obviously a fantastic league and where, I think, most players and managers want to be.”

Weir spent six seasons in the Premier League with Everton between 1999 and 2007 but still thinks Rodgers would prefer to be competing for trophies at Celtic.

Rodgers could land his third consecutive domestic treble if Celtic win the league and Scottish Cup.

Weir believes the lure of silverware is strong enough to overpower the prospect of returning to Premier League management.
