This is interesting.

Celtic FC manager Brendan Rodgers has ruled himself out of the vacant managerial spot at Aston Villa.

Or has he?

He says he loves it at Celtic, fine, that’s par for the course. In an interview with BBC Scotland when asked does he rule himself out, he said:

“Yes. There is always speculation, but I’m sure they’ll have the person in mind that they want to bring in.”

Later in a news conference though, bearing in mind he’s clearly not been happy this season with the lack of investment in the team, he said:

“You can’t rule me out because I have never been asked”.

It’s not exactly an unequivocal no, I’m not interested is it?

Must say, when we bought John McGinn, he waxed lyrical about Aston Villa. If he’s not happy at Celtic (or if Celtic aren’t happy with him) I’d love us to make an approach. He had Liverpool playing lovely football, did well at Swansea and has the sort of experience we could do with to push us into the Premiership and then upward.

He’d know the job at hand, he’d also understand that if he did get us up, our rich owners will be ambitious to put us back to where we were once being. The top four in the Premiership.

Time will tell.

Other speculation links us to a Henri and Terry as a double act. That’d be interesting, although I’d have thought if we have a younger, inexperienced manager, we’d need a more experienced number two?

New manager thread and poll in the forum….

  • Agree with Benny, another fading manager,and Av certainly know how to pick those
    Hope Sawiris Edens interview Faria or Forsenca before making final decisions.
    Even at this stage go for Faria his cv puts Henry and Terry into their true light of no experience
    Faria has it all as does Forsenca

  • Laudrup I believe we have approached Forsenca but he has said he wants to stay where he is and doesn’t want to drop into the championship. Can’t say I blame him but I think this isn’t as cut and dried as the press would have us believe and there will be a few more turns of the dice to come.
