Why The Celtic Board Needs To Back Rodgers In The Upcoming Transfer Window

Dean Smith is set to take the top job at Aston Villa, and even though Rodgers ruled himself out from the job, some fans in Glasgow would be breathing a sigh of relief that it’s done and dusted. However, the Celtic board now needs to back their man in the upcoming transfer window as otherwise, the Hoops genuinely run the risk of losing him in the future.

As long as Rodgers is at Celtic, there is always going to be a chance of him moving to England. Rodgers had earlier claimed that he even rejected a big money offer to manage in China. The work which the Northern Irish manager has done in the past two seasons has been fantastic, and his experience of English football would make him a contender for a lot of the jobs in England.

Therefore it’s imperative for the Hoops board to back their man in the transfer market in January as another insignificant window like the one this summer could push Rodgers away from the club.

The Hoops have had an indifferent start to the season, and many are rightly blaming it on the poor transfer window the club had in the summer. They not only failed to land their targets but also went on to lose their crucial players who played a significant part in Celtic’s domination in the last two seasons.

Rodgers might not show in public but he would, of course, be disappointed with that, more so that they failed to land their targets in the summer. Rumours are doing the round that Celtic CEO Peter Lawwell and Rodgers don’t share the best of relationship at the moment and a failed summer window was a major cause for it.

There is not going to be a shortage of jobs for Rodgers in England and Villa was not the first and the last club who would approach the talented 45-year-old tactician. Rodgers might have failed to bring trophies when he was with Liverpool, but they did play some fantastic football when he had the right kind of players at his disposal.

The Hoops faithful would hope that Celtic don’t turn out the way Liverpool did after they sold their talismanic striker Luis Suarez. A similar situation is already building at Park Head, and the Celtic board should step up and replace the French forward Moussa Dembele with an equally talented striker.

Celtic would hope that they can continue their domination in the Scottish Premiership and the board needs to back the gaffer in the transfer window. If not, that day doesn’t seem far away when Rodgers would leave Celtic Park for a much lucrative job down south.
