Sports broadcaster Alan Brazil believes Brendan Rodgers might leave Celtic soon.

Writing in his column for the Sunday Post, Brazil revealed his fears that Rodgers would walk away from the Celtic job should a team like West Ham or Leicester City come calling.

The former Swansea City and Liverpool manager has been linked with West Ham in the past.

But would he make the switch from Celtic to East London and join West Ham now?

Here is why we believe Brazil’s theory is wrong.

Brendan Rodgers at Celtic

Rodgers joined Celtic in 2016 and has delivered the Scottish Premiership title in both his years in charge.

The Northern Irishman has also claimed back-to-back Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup victories.

Rodgers is a popular figure at Celtic Park and is currently embarking on a domestic and European mission for success.

West Ham board keep the faith

West Ham’s board comes in for a lot of criticism at times. But one thing you can say is that they will always back their manager to turn things around.

 

Slaven Bilic and Sam Allardyce were eventually dismissed but they were given time to reverse their poor form.

David Moyes remained until the end of last season, despite some calls for him to be dismissed when things were looking bleak.

The board will back Manuel Pellegrini to lift West Ham out of a slump, if the Hammers find themselves in relegation trouble.

West Ham’s owners have already publicly backed Pellegrini after he lost his opening four games.

Unless something goes drastically wrong, I cannot see West Ham needing to change managers for the foreseeable future.

Title challenge to relegation scrap

If West Ham did sack Pellegrini, then it would mean that the club are deep in a relegation battle.

They would have decided that a change of manager was the only way to keep the Irons afloat in the Premier League.

Would Rodgers really sacrifice the chance of winning the triple for the third consecutive year, as well as his European venture, for a relegation battle in the Premier League?

I think that the 45-year-old would definitely prefer staying with Celtic.
