Video: Brendan Rodgers Picks Players He’s Looking Out For at World Cup

Brendan Rodgers has picked out the players he’s going to be looking out for at the World Cup.

The Celtic manager should be watching on intently as the best countries in the world go up against each other in Russia this summer.

It starts on Thursday with the hosts playing Saudi Arabia, before the real action starts on Friday with three games and then four on Saturday.

Supporters will be hoping Rodgers can pick up some new signings who shine at the World Cup.

But he seems more excited about the top players on show at the tournament, including Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Marco Asensio.

Speaking to Celtic sponsors Dafabet recently, the Hoops manager said:

All of those players are well known to supporters and play for some of Europe’s biggest teams so don’t expect them to be joining the Hoops anytime soon.

But Rodgers will definitely be dipping into the transfer market this summer and it’s players with the more unknown countries that could interest him this summer.
