Report: Brendan Rodgers is Celtic's No. 1 target, he's holding Bhoys talks today

Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers is reportedly holding talks with Celtic today.

According to Sky Sports, Brendan Rodgers is holding talks with Celtic today, as the Bhoys search for a new manager following Ronny Deila's exit.

The Bhoys lifted the Scottish Premiership title on Sunday afternoon, as the curtain came down on Deila's two-year spell in the Celtic Park dugout.

The Norwegian's contract isn't being extended after an underwhelming season, and now Celtic are searching for a new manager - with a top target seemingly emerging.

Sky Sports report that former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has become Celtic's first choice to replace Deila, and he's holding talks with the Bhoys today.

Rodgers, 43, was agonisingly close to winning the Premier League in 2014 as Liverpool were pipped to top spot by Manchester City, and also has the 2011 Championship play-offs to his name as well from his time with Swansea City.

Out of work since losing his job at Liverpool in October, the Northern Irishman is believed to be returning to management this summer, and the Celtic job is one of the biggest available.

It's suggested that Rodgers held talks with the Bhoys hierarchy last week, and is now talking to the club again today as his possible move to Glasgow gathers pace.

Rodgers' possible move to Celtic is particularly fascinating given that, earlier this month, he was quoted by The Guardian as saying that the Bhoys are an 'iconic' club - and now, he could be in line to take the job at Celtic Park this summer.
