Celtic see attempts to appoint former Liverpool chief scuppered, shock Premier League club show interest (not Swansea)

Celtic’s attempts to appoint Brendan Rodgers as their new manager this summer could be dealt a huge blow following interest from West Bromwich Albion, report the Daily Record.

The 43-year old has been strongly linked with the soon-to-be-vacant post at Parkhead, having been out of work since being axed by Liverpool in October.

A return to former club Swansea has been heavily suggested for the Northern Irishman, having got the job at Anfield based off the back of his impressive performances in South Wales.

However, the Baggies are now believed to have thrown their hats into the ring as Tony Pulis enters the final year of his deal at the Hawthorns.

The Midlands club have also appointed a technical director in the shape of Nicky Hammond, while the Welshman is reported to want final sale on all transfers in and out of the club.

West Brom are said to have identified Rodgers as an ideal candidate to win over their fans, some of which have become increasingly frustrated with the style of play deployed by Pulis.
