Brendan Rodgers would be the perfect manager to take over at Tottenham if Mauricio Pochettino leaves the club, Sir Rod Stewart has told talkSPORT.

The rock and roll legend and fierce Celtic fan believes Rodgers can only take the Scottish champions so far and will soon look to return to Premier League football .

Meanwhile, Pochettino has been widely touted as a possible contender to replace Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid , with the Frenchman under pressure in the Bernabeu hotseat.

And Stewart believes Rodgers, who has won four trophies since becoming Celtic boss in 2016, would be a great fit for the title-aspiring Premier League side.

Asked about Rodgers’ future, Sir Rod told Alan Brazil on Thursday’s Sports Breakfast: “Does he want to move back to the Premier League? Of course he does.

“He can only take Celtic so far. He’s a class manager.

“I can imagine, maybe once the Tottenham manager goes, he would be a great for Spurs."
