The Hoops are known to be in the market for a centre-back before the transfer window slams shut at the end of this month, and have recently been linked with City defender Jason Denayer, but the Belgian international now looks set to sign for French side Lyon.
But Rodgers’ was spotted in the stands at the home of the Premier League champions earlier today during Sky Sports’ coverage of the match, and it has left some supporters wondering if the Northern Irishman is perhaps eyeing a deal for one of the teams’ players.
Of course, Celtic have a link with City and signed their Australian winger Daniel Arzani on a two-year loan deal earlier this week – but could Rodgers be eyeing up another of City’s exciting young prospects?
Wonder what Brendan Rodgers is dining at the Man City game ? Just a day out maybe ?

My man Brendan Rodgers at the Etihad, if you remember, our bubble burst in 16/17 after we drew 3-3 against Celtic

Man City security staff double-frisking Brendan Rodgers before he enters the ground. What the fuck do you think he's going to do? He's a professional football manager. Dickheads. #mcfc

Is Rodgers down south to try and finalise a much-needed defensive signing?
What do you think?
