Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers would be making big mistake joining Newcastle United

Brendan Rodgers, Manager of Celtic celebrates following the Scottish Cup Final between Motherwell and Celtic at Hampden Park on May 19, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is said to be considered as a potential manager of Newcastle United.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is seen during a training session at Lennoxtown Training Centre on April 27, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

According to the Daily Mirror, Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is on Newcastle United’s radar, but he would be making a mistake by moving to St. James’ Park.

Newcastle are reportedly considering the future of Rafael Benitez, with Rodgers lined up as a potential replacement.

 

But Rodgers would be unwise to leave Celtic to join Newcastle, unless he was given assurances over his transfer budget.

And the job Rodgers has done at Celtic means that he will be an appealing prospect to many Premier League clubs.

If Rodgers was to pick Newcastle now, he would risk being in a similar situation to what he is at Celtic - in the sense of not being able to sign the majority of the players he wants.

And Rodgers should bide his time and wait for a better option before he contemplates making a return to England.
