Brendan Rodgers spotted on the tube in London this morning

It seems Brendan Rodgers has been doing a spot of sight-seeing in London this morning. What other possible reason would there be for the former Liverpool boss to be riding the tube while wearing a suit, anyway?

Rodgers has been out of the game since he was let go by the Reds last month with just eight games of the Premier League season gone, and now he's being linked with a return to Chelsea.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho was serving a one-game stadium ban during his side's 1-0 defeat against Stoke - their seventh league loss of the season - and that has heaped the pressure on the Special One. Previous reports have suggested that the former Real Madrid boss could be let go by Roman Abramovich ahead of the international break.

Rodgers has been suggested as a potential short-term replacement at Stamford Bridge who can take the reigns before a move to land Pep Guardiola in the summer - and the Northern Irishman set tongues wagging on Twitter with his London tour this morning.

According to commuters, Rodgers was spotted across the capital at Holborn, Waterloo and Leicester Square, and he was pictured on the London Overground as well - prompting suggestions that he was interviewing for the vacancies at either Fulham, Charlton or QPR.

Less likely is a meeting at Chelsea's Cobham training ground, while another more realistic destination, according to one Twitter user, was his home in Reading.

Rodgers spent three years in charge of Anfield and guided them to success in the Capital One Cup back in 2013, as well as a second place Premier League finish in 2014, but was unable to sustain that success before being let go following a slow start to the 2015/16 campaign.

Liverpool moved to appoint Jurgen Klopp as his successor and, after a bright start, suffered his first loss in charge against Crystal Palace yesterday.
