Brendan Rodgers’ Glasgow house break-in after joining Leicester

Rodgers’ week goes from bad to worse

New Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has had his home in Glasgow broken into – just one week after he left Scottish giants Celtic.

Rodgers left the Hoops last week, with the Northern Irish boss joining Leicester following Claude Puel’s sacking.

It was expected that Rodgers would guide Celtic to another incredible treble-winning season.

However, he claimed recently he was unable to turn down the offer from Leicester.

As expected, the news didn’t go down too well with the Celtic faithful. 

His life in Leicester didn’t get off to the greatest start either with the Foxes losing their first game under his management against Watford last Sunday.

Now, to make matters worse, his home in Glasgow has now been broken into.

Police statement confirms burglary

According to a report by the BBC, Police were called to the property in East Dunbartonshire in the very early hours of Wednesday.

Police confirmed that there was no one injured during the break-in.

However, there were a number of items stolen from Rodgers’ house.

‘At around 1.55am on Wednesday, March 6 police received reports of a break-in at a property in Drymen Road, Bearsden,’ a police spokeswoman explained to the BBC.

‘No-one was injured but a number of items were stolen from the property.

‘An investigation is underway and enquiries are ongoing.’

In a separate report from Sky Sports, it is said Rodgers’ wife and step-daughter were ‘forced to barricade themselves in a bathroom’ during the break-in.
