Brendan Rodgers To Saints ! Rumours In Scotland
Tuesday, 13th Mar 2018 14:07
The Scottish media are reporting that Saints are likely to try and tempt Brendan Rodgers from Celtic to save the club from relegation.
Ironically Brendan Rodgers was the man responsible for setting Saints off on the crazy ride of the last four years, as Liverpool boss he was central in luring several Saints players to Anfield and became a figure of hate to Saints supporters.
Now though he could be returning to St Mary's, not to sign a player, but to become the manager of the club.
The Scottish Sun is reporting that "Les Reed, who advises Chinese owner Gao Jisheng, is a big admirer of Rodgers. "
They continue to say
"Rodgers signed a four-year deal at Celtic in April, 2017, worth close to £2.5 million a year.
That salary and likely seven-figure compensation figure would not deter Saints, who face a huge fight to maintain their top flight status."
Certainly Rodgers has experience in the Premier League and varying success, with good seasons interspersed by indifferent ones, at Celtic he has enjoyed success, but then again virtually anyone would win the title every season up in Scotland given the lack of any real opposition to Celtic following Rangers problems of the last few years.
Certainly Rodgers would be more attractive to Saints fans than Mark Hughes, but there is still that simmering annimosity from the summer of 2014.

A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.
