Former Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is in the frame for the Tottenham Hotspur vacancy after an update from Caught Offside this afternoon. The Irishman has been out of work having left Leicester City at the beginning of April but the Spurs hotseat could allow Rodgers to make a return to management this summer.
🚨 EXCLUSIVE 🚨
Brendan Rodgers would “love” the Spurs job and is one to watch.
Arne Slot is a leading candidate, while Roberto de Zerbi, Thomas Frank, Xabi Alonso, and Ruben Amorim are also being considered.#THFC face one major issue in all this, however…

Rodgers was at the Celtic helm for two and a half years. The ex-Liverpool manager won seven trophies in a row, an Invincible Treble, a 69-game unbeaten run and numerous other successes before being replaced by Neil Lennon when he left for Leicester in February 2019. Supporters will likely recognise how impressive Rodgers’ time at the club was Many people realised that there were issues at a boardroom level that led to his departure, which was emphasised by the off-field mess of the 2020/21 season.
The manager has proven his worth as a coach but has struggled in the transfer window, the approach at Spurs may actually suit Rodgers. There are patterns between his exit from Liverpool, Celtic and his most recent spell with Leicester. Rodgers had enjoyed success with Leicester, finishing fifth twice and winning an FA Cup; however, he will likely be unable to match the intensity of the Celtic job wherever he goes.
It will be interesting to see whether Spurs make a move for Rodgers.
