BRENDAN RODGERS’ son Anton Rodgers could be set for a shock switch to Scotland after it was revealed he is currently on trial with Falkirk where the free agent is trying to win a move.
The midfielder who has had spells at Brighton, Oldham Athletic and Swindon Town has been out of contract since leaving Hungerford Town in the summer – a club who ply their trade in the sixth tier of English Football.
Anton famously came and trained with Celtic to help get his fitness up during Brendan Rodgers preseason over a year ago and even played in a friendly for the bhoys against BW Linz.
Falkirk are looking for all the help they can get to turn around their fortunes. The club currently sit bottom of the Championship after six games and need to turn things around fast. Could Anton be the answer?
There’s obviously very little chance of dad and son coming up against one another if Anton does sign for Falkirk – maybe a Scottish cup showdown though.
