Carnlough man Brendan Rodgers is reported to be in talks with Celtic about becoming the club’s new manager.

According to Sky Sports, the former Liverpool FC boss is now the number one candidate for the Celtic Park job and is said to be holding further talks with the club.

Ronny Deila announced earlier this month he was stepping down as Celtic manager, despite leading them to their fifth successive title this season.

Rodgers has been out of management since his exit from Anfield in October 2015, when he was replaced by Jurgen Klopp.
