Brendan Rodgers' house near Glasgow has been ransacked days after Celtic exit

Celtic v Aberdeen - Betfred Cup Final

Ex-Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers' home near Glasgow has been burgled.

Having left Scotland's largest city last week to take the Leicester City job, his empty property was ransacked with a number of valuable items stolen.

Rodgers lived in the property in Bearsden, close to Glasgow, during his time at Celtic Park, but it has now become the subject of a police investigation on Wednesday morning.

A spokeswoman from Police Scotland explained: “At around 1.55am on Wednesday March 6, police received a report of a break in at a property in Drymen Road, Bearsden.

"No one was injured in the incident but a number of items were stolen from the property. An investigation is underway and enquiries are ongoing.”

Tough week for Rodgers

It's a personal blow in what has already been a tough week for Rodgers, who has received an unsavoury reaction to his departure from the Scottish champions.

Hoops fans were unimpressed with his decision to leave the club and a section of supporters erected a banner reading: "You traded immortality for mediocrity. Never a Celt. Always a Fraud.”

Further to that, Rodgers suffered a 2-1 defeat to Watford during his first game back in the Premier League.

The news comes less than a month after Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sadio Mane also saw their properties broken into, both of which took place during Barcelona and Liverpool games.

Rodgers will be hoping that the investigation in Glasgow is successful and we'll have more updates as they come.
