BRENDAN RODGERS isn’t the most popular guy among Celtic fans at the moment due to his badly timed and hasty exit from the club and to borrow a wrestling term – the Irishman could be going full heel this summer in the transfer window.
According to SunSport on Friday morning, the former Celtic manager is going to try and lure Patrick Roberts to Leicester this summer as he looks to revamp his squad.
Roberts left Celtic last summer and headed back to the Etihad. It was surprising when he decided to go out on loan again when his deal with Girona was announced. Due to circumstances and injury the midfielder didn’t manage to make his mark in Spain and is now back in Manchester. The Double Treble winner is now entering the last year of his City deal and many Celtic fans are desperate to see Celtic go out and try to sign Paddy on a permanent deal. However, according to SunSport Brendan Rodgers may beat Celtic to the punch with the lure of Premier League Football and more money than Celtic could ever offer the player.
Rodgers knows all about Paddy from his time at Celtic and it makes sense if he wants him in at Leicester but any Celtic fan who is still smarting over his exit will not be happy if it happens.
