Celtic make £9 million compensation request for Brendan Rodgers

Celtic managed to get the better of Hibernian on Saturday by securing a 4-2 win at Parkhead, which gave their title hopes a massive boost. 

The Hoops can’t afford to slip up at all anymore with Hearts still sitting at the top of the table and other sides creeping up behind the defending Scottish Premiership champions. Although, it appears as if the Glasgow club are doing everything they possibly can to hold onto their main man, as according to Sun Sport, Celtic will demand £9 million in compensation for Brendan Rodgers.

Brendan Rodgers comes with a stunning £9 million price tag, which has given English Premier League sides Newcastle United and Leicester City a massive headache.

Indeed, the Northern Irishman is known to be interested in a move back to the Premier League, but the potential suitors will have to pay above the odds if they want to secure his services.

So, Celtic will feel confident that they can hold onto their main man, with clubs possibly wanting to save their money for potential additions in the January transfer window.

THE VERDICT:

Brendan Rodgers has already shown that he can grind out results in the Premier League from his Liverpool days, but taking the reigns at either Newcastle United or Leicester City would be a whole different challenge.

Indeed, the Hoops can provide European football and silverware has been a guarantee during his time in Scotland, but his underlying interest in a move back to the Premier League could prove too much if clubs pay the price.
