Watt delivers stinging response to West Ham fans calling for Celtic manager Rodgers

By John Reid

Former Celtic striker Tony Watt has taken to twitter to pour cold water on any speculation linking Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers to West Ham.

Watt, who scored the second goal on the famous night that Celtic defeated Barcelona 2-1, said that the move had as much chance of happening as he does of winning the Ballon D’Or – the award formerly given out to the best footballer in the World.

West Ham are looking for a new manager after sacking Slaven Bilic this morning, and David Moyes is favourite to take over until the end of the season.

Despite this, some West Ham fans are pleading for their club to approach Rodgers, including a prominent talkSPORT broadcaster.

West Ham currently sit in 18th place in the Premier League following their 4-1 defeat by Liverpool at the Olympic Stadium at the weekend.

In contrast to the London club, Celtic are currently top of the Scottish Premiership, have just set a new British record of 63 domestic games unbeaten and are on the verge of securing Europa League football after Christmas.

West Ham face an away trip to Watford when the Premier League returns after the international break, with Celtic playing at Ross County the same weekend.
