Rod Stewart Tips Brendan Rodgers to Be Future Tottenham Manager

Rod Stewart Tips Brendan Rodgers to Be Future Tottenham Manager

Rod Stewart is tipping Brendan Rodgers to be Tottenham manager in the future.

The legendary musician makes no secret of his love for Celtic and appeared on TalkSPORT’s Sports Breakfast show with Alan Brazil this morning to talk about his team’s clash with Zenit in the Europa League this evening.

After admitting that it’s going to be a very tough ask to get through, Stewart spoke about the Hoops manager and what the future could hold for him.

And Stewart believes Rodgers could be the right fit at White Hart Lane once Mauricio Pochettino moves on.

Speaking to Brazil, per talksport.com, Stewart said: “Does he want to move back to the Premier League? Of course he does.

“He can only take Celtic so far. He’s a class manager.

“I can imagine, maybe once the Tottenham manager goes, he would be a great for Spurs.

“As long as he gives us the double treble which we’re close to, I’m very happy, and he wins tonight.”

Stewart was also asked about the prospect of Celtic playing in the Premier League at some point in the future.

And he believes the Scottish champions could make it, but money is a big issue.

Stewart added: “Before I’m the wrong side of the grass, I’d like to see it.

“They can’t walk straight into the Premier League, they wouldn’t have a chance.

“But they’d do very well in the Championship, they’d finish up midway and then it’s all about money.”

Martin Keown better watch out too, after Stewart said he owed the former Arsenal defender a punch in the earhole for his recent comments about Celtic.

Keown was very critical of Celtic’s defending in the 7-1 defeat to PSG in the Champions League earlier this season – and Stewart obviously wasn’t happy about that.

He said: “Talking about money, the team tonight we’re playing spent £120million on their players. That’s what we’re up against.

“We’re punching above our weight and I wish people would realise that, especially Martin Keown, who called us a disgrace.

“I owe him a punch in the earhole.”

Celtic play Zenit in the second leg of their Europa League tie in Russia at 6pm, holding a 1-0 lead from their first leg.
