Saviour Rodgers up to his old tricks? Hey, it’s just busi­ness

Scottish Daily Mail - - Football -

SO there’s a clause in the con­tract then, is there? Hardly a shock. No more sur­pris­ing than Bren­dan Rodgers ac­tu­ally fes­s­ing up to its ex­is­tence — with­out too much pres­sure from his in­ter­roga­tor.

And, if it helps, the fact that he may be about to ‘do the dirty’ on an­other team so quickly should al­low them to take con­so­la­tion from one ob­vi­ous truth. With Rodgers, it’s not per­sonal. It’s just busi­ness. Not that it’ll stop him wax­ing
