Would Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers be a good managerial appointment for Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur in the long run?

Celtic Manager Brendan Rodgers celebrates during the William Hill Scottish Cup Final between Celtic and Aberdeen at Hampden Park on May 27, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has suggested in The Daily Record that Tottenham Hotspur would look at Brendan Rodgers if Mauricio Pochettino leaves.

Rodgers has been in charge of Celtic since the summer of 2016 and has a contract with the Scottish giants until until June 2021, according to

The former Liverpool and Swansea City manager has been hugely successful at Celtic Park already.

Under Rodgers last season, the Glasgow giants won the Scottish Premiership title, the Scottish League Cup and the Scottish Cup.

Mauricio Pochettino, manager of Spurs looks on prior to the Pre-Season Friendly match beween Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus at Wembley Stadium on August 5, 2017 in London, England.

The Hoops also progressed to the group stage of the Champions League during the 2016-17 campaign, just as they have done this season.

Rodgers was successful during his managerial spell at Swansea and almost guided Liverpool to the Premier League title during the 2013-14 season.

Former Celtic striker Sutton believes that Tottenham would look at Rodgers if Pochettino leaves.

The Englishman has also suggested that Arsenal would look at the former Liverpool manager as a potential successor to Arsene Wenger.

Arsene Wenger of Arsenal looks prior to the Pre-Season Friendly match between Arsenal FC and Chelsea FC at Birds Nest on July 22, 2017 in Beijing, China.

“I disagree that Rodgers would not be considered for a top job down south as nobody there cares about Scottish football,” Sutton wrote in The Daily Record.

“Why wouldn’t he be an attractive proposition to a top English club? There aren’t too many with as good a CV as his.

“He might not go back to Liverpool but you can’t tell me Arsenal or Spurs, if Mauricio Pochettino eventually goes, wouldn’t look at Rodgers.

"It’s not a case of why would they, it’s more why wouldn’t they? He got a bit of stick at Liverpool before he left so in many ways his stock is actually rising in Scotland."
