Steven Gerrard Insists Former Liverpool Manager Cannot Resist The Lure Of Premier League

Steven Gerrard feels Brendan Rodgers would be tempted for a return to the Premier League.

The Celtic manager has been linked with the vacant Leicester City managerial job and is on the verge of replacing Claude Puel who departed from the King Power stadium following Leicester’s harrowing defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace.

The former Liverpool manager led the Reds almost to the title back in 2013-14 but some last minute lapse of concentration saw Manchester City lifting the title from the grabs of them.

The Irish has had an overwhelming success in Scotland guiding the Bhoys to consecutive domestic trebles and should he remain at the Parkhead for the remainder of the season Celtic could make a hat-trick of Scottish top flight title.

Gerrard who also played under Rodgers at Liverpool said, “I have worked with Brendan so I know he is a very good coach.

“It seems (the lure of Premier League has been a big factor) otherwise he’d have declined the opportunity to talk to Leicester.

“I’m not really surprised by the timing because these things happen. Brendan has done ever so well at Celtic over the years so it’s no surprise that other clubs are watching him and wanting to acquire his services.”
