Dundee FC star delivers stern warning to Celtic FC regarding Brendan Rodgers


Dundee midfielder James Vincent has warned Celtic that their manager Brendan Rodgers will be a target for a number of English teams in the summer.

Brendan Rodgers joined Celtic as manager in the summer and the Northern Irishman needed to revive his reputation at Parkhead after an acrimonious exit from Liverpool last year.

Much to Celtic’s delight, Rodgers has done an exceedingly fine job in his role as manager of Celtic and the 44-year-old is well on course to guiding the Hoops to a domestic treble in dominant fashion.

As a mark of Celtic’s brilliant performances this year, they are unbeaten in the Scottish Premier League after 28 matches and have won 26 games in total, leading second placed Aberdeen by a whopping 32 points.

Rodgers has understandably been widely praised for his efforts during the current campaign and a number of Premier League clubs are currently believed to be courting the services of the ex-Liverpool boss.

Vincent thinks Rodgers will leave

Now Dundee star James Vincent has gone on to hail Rodgers as well and the midfielder has warned Celtic that they could risk losing their manager as he believes that Premier League clubs will surely be plotting a swoop to bring him back to England next season.

Vincent was quoted saying to the Scotsman, “Brendan has done a marvellous job. Without doubt, if he goes through the whole season undefeated then clubs down in England especially will be sitting up and taking notice.

“I think it will come down to where his ambition lies. He already has a good reputation in England so nothing would surprise you. Looking from the outside, you never know what’s going to happen at a club like Arsenal in the near future and Rodgers’ results here in Scotland won’t go unnoticed in certain quarters.

“He proved for the three years or so when he was in charge of Liverpool that he can cut it in the English Premier League. It’s a fact of football these days – like it or not – that if you’re doing well and getting success then you’re going to inevitably attract interest.

“Rodgers has turned Celtic round big-time in such a short space of time. Who knows how long he’ll stay there for?”
