BRENDAN RODGERS to Leicester reports appeared overnight and the potential of the Celtic manager moving at the end of the season is now being debated.
So who did TalkSport Radio call upon to give an opinion on the prospect of this happening Kilmarnock striker/Ibrox Cheerleader Kris Boyd! And would you believe he’s tipped the Celtic manager to leave?
Wishful thinking was in full swing as a current SPFL footballer talks about a current SPFL manager with his club just one point behind them. With absolutely no inside track and a distorted perception of why Brendan Rodgers is here, the former Ibrox striker let it be known to an English audience that the Irishman will fancy it.
“There is potential to create something there with Leicester,” Boyd said to TalkSport as cited by The Record.
“Brendan likes a project there is no doubt about that – you can see what he’s done at other clubs.
“It might be the start of something again for Leicester to stay at the top end of English football.
“But if he’s given the opportunity, then I fully expect him to take it, but there’s no doubt that Celtic fans, the board and the players would want him to stay there until the end of the season.”
The Celtic boss has absolutely dominated Scottish football since coming in; winning every single domestic trophy in his path. There are many people including Boyd who would love to see the back of the Celtic gaffer.
Regardless of Rodgers future plans, there’s no way Kris Boyd can lend any sort of knowledge other than pure conjecture. It’s remarkable this guy is allowed to make these sort of comments, unchallenged by the governing body as he tries to unsettle the Celtic side with his current and former team standing to benefit.
