Report: Celtic to hold talks with Brendan Rodgers imminently, but he has two major doubts

Brendan Rodgers

Celtic are reportedly set to hold talks with Brendan Rodgers.

According to the Daily Mail, Celtic are set to hold talks with Brendan Rodgers about becoming the club's new manager this summer.

The Bhoys confirmed in April that current boss Ronny Deila will leave the club at the end of the season, after the Norwegian stumbled through an underwhelming season.

With the Norwegian edging towards his exit, Celtic fans are wondering who will replace Deila in the Celtic Park hot seat, and a host of managers have been mentioned as possible candidates.

Ex-Celtic players like Neil Lennon, Paul Lambert, Roy Keane and David Moyes have all been touted for the role - but Celtic may yet look for somebody with no prior links to the club.

The Daily Mail report that Brendan Rodgers is set to open talks with the Bhoys imminently, having been ruled out of contention for the Swansea City job, which will be staying with Francesco Guidolin.

Rodgers, 43, lost his job as Liverpool boss back in October and could seek a return to management this summer, and Celtic could land a major coup by holding talks with him in the coming days or weeks.

However, it's also suggested that Rodgers has two major doubts about taking the Celtic job, surrounding 'the standard of Scottish football and possible budget constraints'.

Celtic may have to push the boat out to land Rodgers this summer, and if they can't convince him to take the reins at Celtic Park, they may end up looking at other targets like Lambert, Keane or Moyes.
