Newcastle United and Leicester City managers Rafael Benitez and Claude Puel have come under heavy criticism this season for some of their side’s results and performances.
As a result, Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has been linked with a move to both clubs (via the Sun), though John Hartson cannot see such a thing materialising during this current campaign.
“In terms of money both of these clubs could blow Celtic entirely out of the water both in terms of what they can offer on a personal level and on a transfer budget,” Hartson wrote in his Evening Times column.
“But that isn’t what it is about for Rodgers. I know because he has told me personally than he is happy with his life and happy at his work in Glasgow.”
Should Rodgers stay at Celtic Park to achieve 10-in-a-row and beyond that as Hartson has suggested, then Peter Lawwell and the club’s decision to bring the 45-year-old to Glasgow could prove to be an even more brilliant one as each day passes.
While Rodgers has been able to deliver success, a brand of entertaining football and attract quality signings, the overall stability he will provide the club if he remains in Scotland would be massive.
The next step for the former Liverpool manager and Celtic is to go on a deep run in either the Champions League or Europa League. And while the Bhoys look some way off from being able to that in this moment of time, under Rodgers, it is not hard to imagine progress being eventually made in that department
