Dalglish wrote in The Sunday Post (December 4, 2017) while discussing Rodgers’s success at Celtic: “This has led to many people in the game, on both sides of the border, speculating that Brendan may want to leave and will be targeted by ‘bigger clubs’ down south.

“I think talk such as that is hugely disappointing and disrespectful. I’ve even heard people say that Brendan may be fed up with the lack of competition in Scotland, given the fact that they take three points in almost every game.

“Listen, I’ve never known any manager to moan about winning every week. Why is it that when a manager is doing well, there is talk that he will be ready to move on?”
