Report: Rodgers considering shock move to reunite with Steven Gerrard at Celtic

Brendan Rodgers is reportedly considering a move for Steven Gerrard.

According to The Scottish Sun, new Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is keen to reunite with his former Liverpool star Steven Gerrard in Glasgow.

Rodgers, 43, was confirmed as Celtic's new manager on Friday afternoon, with the Northern Irishman replacing Ronny Deila as Bhoys boss.

A boyhood Celtic fan, Rodgers is in his dream job, and returns to work for the first time since being sacked by Liverpool back in October.

Rodgers has been brought into not only keep Celtic as the top dog in Scottish football, but also improve their fortunes in Europe after some Champions League struggles under Deila.

To do that, Rodgers will need to boost his squad with some new signings this summer - and The Scottish Sun report that Rodgers could make a bold move to reunite with Steven Gerrard.

The former England captain, 35, is currently playing in the United States with Los Angeles Galaxy, but worked with Rodgers for three years at Anfield, where Rodgers turned the midfielder into one of the top deep-lying playmakers in the Premier League.

Now, it's claimed that Rodgers is lining up a shock move to reunite with Gerrard in Glasgow, with the offer of being a player-assistant at Celtic Park allegedly in the pipeline.

This may be a case of putting two and two together given their history together, and given the money Gerrard is earning in America, a move to Celtic may seem unlikely right now.

Rodgers would surely have to use all of his powers of persuasion to tempt Gerrard to Glasgow, but having told FourFourTwo back in 2014 that Rodgers was the best one-to-one manager he'd ever known, the chance of a reunion may still be somewhat appealing.
