The Northern Irishman was relieved of his duties by Liverpool in October, making way for Jurgen Klopp to replace him in the Anfield hot seat.
But according to The Daily Record, the Merseyside outfit are still paying Rodgers a whopping £5million per year as part of his gardening pay – which has two years left to run.
That adds new complications to the 43-year-old’s recent talks with Celtic majority shareholder Dermot Desmond, who is hoping to hire Rodgers as a replacement for outgoing manager Ronny Deila.
The Norwegian gaffer has lead the Bhoys to consecutive Scottish Premiership titles but announced in April that he’s stepping down at the end of the season.
Should Rodgers agree to replace Deila, he’ll no longer be entitled to the £10million severance package – suggesting Desmond will have to make the former Swansea City boss an incredibly lucrative offer to bring him to Parkhead.
