Both West Ham and Swansea have contacted Celtic about appointing Brendan Rodgers as their next manager, according to a report.
The Daily Record is claiming that the English Premier League sides “sent out feelers” to find out if the Celtic manager would be interested in a move to London, or a return to one of his former clubs.
However, they were “were left in little doubt any formal pursuit of Rodgers would be a pointless exercise”.
Rodgers has lead Celtic to four domestic trophies out of four since taking over at Celtic Park in May 2016, with the latest coming at the weekend in the 2-0 Betfred Cup victory over Motherwell.
Football Insider verdict: It’s little wonder that both West Ham and Swansea are interested in Brendan Rodgers, the man has transformed Celtic in two years. The team are on the verge of European football after Christmas for the first time in three years, and are on a British domestic record run of 65 games unbeaten, which shows incredible consistency. It does seem inevitable that one day Rodgers will return to the English Premier League, but not for a couple of years, as he still has more to achieve at Celtic Park, particularly in the Champions League. He also seems destined for a bigger club than relegation candidates like West Ham and Swansea.
