As Everton's managerial search continues should they take a serious look at Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers?

The bookmakers' favourite as to who will be the next Everton manager continues to change with it now more than a month since Ronald Koeman was sacked.

Sam Allardyce, Sean Dyche and Marco Silva have all been strongly linked with the vacant position in the past, but currently Martin O'Neill is the leading candidate with Skybet at 11/8.

Unfortunately for the fans the Toffees do not seem any closer to actually making an appointment than when they dismissed Koeman back on October 24.

David Unsworth has been in charge on a caretaker basis since then but results have not improved, losing five of his seven matches in charge in all competitions.

It is a run that is unlikely to see Unsworth given the job permanently, so should the Merseysiders make an ambitious move to bring Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers back to the city?

Rodgers has not managed in the Premier League since being sacked by Liverpool in October 2015, but has since won the treble of Scottish Premiership, Cup and League Cup with the Bhoys in 2016/17 and went the entire season unbeaten.

The Northern Irishman could repeat the feat this term after beating Motherwell in the final of the latter competition, but having been humbled in the Champions League by Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, has the 44-year-old arguably already taken the Glasgow club as far as he can?

Rodgers admitted to talkSPORT back in April that he would return to the top flight of English football one day, so could the position at Goodison Park tempt the ambitious coach?
