    I think he should stay & have a crack at going as far as Leicester did in the CL or even further next season. The confidence that Celtic side must have after this season must give them some unprecedented belief & motivation that should not be wasted by BR or key players leaving. He will be able to walk into a Premier league job at any time after this season.

    Rodgers can only be judged in a few years’ time when his best players have to be replaced. Klopp’s showed him how inexperienced he is by taking his team to 2 finals. Did Rodgers want Firmino?
    Firmino said: “It was a short period under Rodgers. I considered him a great manager but I didn’t get much playing time under him. He also played Can as a CB. And I ‘ll never forget how he destroyed Gerrard’s last season.

    Rodgers was definitely inexperienced somewhat for a big club like Liverpool, however, Im glad he has gotten some kind of ego boost at Celtic.

    The problem with Rodgers in the end was that he didn’t believe in his own ideals. He tried out too many different tactics, bought players and then failed to play them in the right positions. However, to his credit, he did have to deal with some stressful issues which might have broken lesser managers: Suarez, Sterling and dealing with old man Gerrard.

    I like Rodgers would love to see him at Arsenal to be honest, I think he would be good for them. But Arsenal fans would hate that Im sure…

    Rodgers played Sterling out of position all over the field, and about Sterling’s contract saga, Ward said, “Then there was an underhandedness, there were sly remarks. In press conferences, Brendan told everyone Raheem would sign – why do that?”. I don’t think the blame lies solely with Sterling. This man went to Santiago Bernabéu Stadium and played our 2nd team against Real Madrid. Colin Pascoe had been Brendan’s man ever since Brendan went to Swansea, and he sacked his coaching staff in order to save himself. The players said it all about playing for him in the last game of that season against Stoke, flying off on holiday straight after a 6-1 thrashing. He should ve been gone then. Which premier league club still wanted him straight after his sacking, probably only Swansea?

    The Scottish Premier League. The most pointless competition in professional football. Why even bother?

    He has really found a home at Celtic as another record is broken. Turning them into a force in the CL too. Would be interesting if we come up against them in later stages.

    Rodgers was ‘cutting his managerial teeth’ in the Premiership which is one dangerous environment to do so.

    That’s why there’s the Championship, D1, D2 and Scotland!

    To be honest I find it a bit distasteful the way some people deride him. I don’t see what he did during his time here that deserves such stick.

    He took us closer to the title than anyone has done since we last won it, whilst playing some of the best football we had played since last winning it. Yes he fell at the final hurdle but he did his best to get us there.

    At no point did he show any disrespect to the club and the fans, he went as far as retrieving traditional items from the museum / cupboards and re-installed them in their rightful place.

    All I saw from the time he was with us is he did his best to for the club, and completely immersed himself in the clubs values and traditions with a view of hopefully building a dynasty, he didn’t manage it but since when did Liverpool start slagging people that did their best for the club.

    Slate the appointment all you like, maybe he was a bit inexperienced for the roll, but no one can deny that was one hell of a season with some scintillating football, that wasn’t solely down to Suarez.

    He wanted to sign Salah and Sanchez, if he had got them who knows maybe he would have won some silverware?

    Yeh I don’t get the criticism of him either, he was a good decent coach who tried his best.

    Same when people criticise Rafa.

    I’ve said it a few times but he came up with the system to get the best out of what we had, surely he deserves credit for that. He was never disrespectful to the club & tried his best.
    I do think his ego grew out of control towards the end but I have no I’ll feelings towards him at all.
    All that said I don’t really see managing Celtic to success in the SPL as any guide on how good a manager someone is. I think Rodgers is a good manager who will hopefully get another crack at the EPL & show us how good he can be.

    I remain convinced to this day that if we has signed Salah that January we would have won the league under Rodgers.

    Unfortunately we were too busy negotiating and then renegotiating over the tiniest amounts and so we lost him.

    I’m not deriding Rodgers. I though he did well for us and was unlucky to lose his job. I’m deriding the Scottish Premier League. It’s shite.

    Such a fine margin between success and failure sometimes. If gerrard had not slipped against chelsea im convinced that we would not have lost that game and with the momentum we had we wouldve have won the nxt 2 games against palace and newc. Rodgers would be a Liverpool legend.

    Sanji, come on mate how has Rodgers turned Celtic into a force in the Champions League it’s a ridiculous claim Celtic have only qualified from the Group stages in 3 of the last 10 seasons and are already eliminated from the Group stages of this season’s CL and consequently there’s no chance of Liverpool coming up against them in the latter stages of the CL this season with Celtic already eliminated with two games to go.

    Rodgers did a good job at Liverpool and was a smidgen away from winning the title in a season where he had Liverpool playing some great football but his ego got out control as he began to believe in his own hype and after losing Suarez he couldn’t reach the same heights again.

    Rodgers domestic success at Celtic has to be balanced against the fact that Celtic have zero competition in Scotland and Shanksy is on the button imo with his view of the SPL “The Scottish Premier League. The most pointless competition in professional football. Why even bother?”

    Rodgers has gone as far as he can go at Celtic now and to progress his career from here he needs to leave Celtic and take up a proper managerial challenge interestingly he gets very few mentions for any of the top jobs in the PL and he will probably have to put his ego to one side and take a role at a lower echelon PL club in order to re establish himself as a PL Manager.
