Gerrard not surprised that Rodgers left Celtic
Rangers head coach Steven Gerrard admitted that he wasn’t surprised by Brendan Rodgers’ decision to quit Celtic in the middle of the season and return to the Premier League.
After receiving permission from Celtic, where he had been working since 2016, Rodgers went to the King Power Stadium to take Claude Puel’s place, who was dismissed on Sunday.
Gerrard, whom Rogers had been training at Liverpool, wasn’t at all surprised by such a rapid development of events, as well as the level of interest in Brendan’s candidacy.
Steven said that he had been working with Brendan and could confirm that Rodgers was a great coach. Apparently the Premier League’s attractiveness became the decisive factor, otherwise, Brendan would have refused to communicate with Leicester. At the moment, even a club from the Premier League’s bottom is a very attractive option for a top manager.
Gerrard is absolutely not surprised that the Premier League clubs are interested in his former manager candidacy. Rodgers was extremely successful at Celtic and at Liverpool, so his experience and qualification do not raise any questions.
