Steven Gerrard hails Celtic boss as ‘fantastic man manager’

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has hailed Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers as a ‘fantastic man manager’ prior to the Hoops’ Champions League playoff tie against Astana tonight.


The former Reds midfielder was previewing the game on BT Sport where he spoke about the influence Rodgers had in his career.

“He’s top drawer. He’s very slick on the training ground, he’s a fantastic man manager, he makes you feel good and confident all the time. He helped me an awful lot. People might not think that but he helped break my game down and change my game so you’ve got to give him a lot of credit.” he said while speaking to Gary Lineker.

Rodgers celebrated a domestic treble with Celtic last season, but their Champions League outing was still a disappointment as they finished last in their group. Celtic have beaten the likes of Linfield and Rosenborg to reach the playoff stage of the competition this season, and fellow BT Sport pundit Steve McManaman also heaped praise on Rodgers for his efforts.McManaman said:”What you have to remember is they did it the hard way Celtic. Yes, they played Linfield early on and dispatched them quite comfortably, but to go and beat Rosenborg when they are top of their league and well into their league, that’s always a difficult game Rosenborg.” Read more »

The story started out as the Red Army fortified by the prospect of their qualifying for the UEFA Champions League, enhancing their ability to entice premium players to Anfield, got involved in a transfer rumour with the Southampton defender.

Yeah, that’s not a crime until you – Liverpool in this case – refuse to openly deny the rumour and allow it to linger on till the Saints management got pissed by the manner with which the Fenway Sports Group-owned club decided to go about the business.

For years, since the Reds fell into the low-quality pool of the Europa League, signing top players have been more of a nightmare. Read more »
