Brendan Rodgers likes signing players from his former club, doesn’t he?
When he was Swansea manager he signed Gylfi Sigurdsson on-loan - a player he worked with at Reading - and during his spell at Liverpool, he purchased Joe Allen from the Welsh club.
And now, after being appointed as Celtic boss, he wants to sign another player from one of his former club with the Liverpool Echo reporting that Rodgers is keen to bring Andre Wisdom to Celtic Park.

Wisdom has spent the previous three campaigns out on-loan at Derby, West Brom and Norwich and his future looks uncertain under Jurgen Klopp.
Wisdom was given his senior debut by Rodgers for Liverpool in a Europa League match against Young Boys and marked it with a goal. He went on to play 19 matches in all competitions during that 2012/13 season.
However, he hasn’t played for the Reds since September 2013 and it’s unlikely that he will have the opportunity to prove himself on Merseyside under Klopp.
Wisdom can play at both right-back and centre-back and his passage to Liverpool’s first-team looks blocked with Nathaniel Clyne in the full-back position while Dejan Lovren, Mamadou Sakho, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez mean the 23-year-old faces stiff competition for regular football.
Therefore, Rodgers is offering him a way out and is prepared to fork out £3 million to secure his services.
Rodgers was appointed as manager of the Celtic on a 12-month rolling contract last month - his first job since being sacked from Liverpool in October.
Excitement in Glasgow
His arrival as the new Hoops boss has pleased plenty of fans in Glasgow and goalkeeper Craig Gordon has admitted how ‘exciting’ it is to have the Northern Irishman in charge.
"It is big, it's huge and it is exciting. It is a really good time to be a Celtic player, a Celtic supporter," he told Sky Sports.
"We just want to get started, we want to learn the way he wants to play, learn our roles within that and, me personally, what he wants me to do and how he wants me to play.
"It is exciting, it is another challenge and one I can't wait to get involved with."
