Burglary at my home had huge effect on my family, says Rodgers

Worry: Brendan Rodgers
Worry: Brendan Rodgers

By Graham Luney

Football boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted a burglary at his Glasgow home had a huge psychological impact on him.

The Carnlough man said his wife Charlotte and six-year-old stepdaughter Lola are also suffering from the effects of the crime in the aftermath of his decision to leave Celtic and join Leicester City.

The break-in, which took place in March, saw Charlotte and Lola forced to lock themselves in a bathroom after intruders broke in and stole a number of possessions, including medals.

"Being broken into, you know it's possible, but you never think it will come," said Rodgers.

"You always worry about the safety of your family but until it happens to you…

"When the public images then appeared of how it happened, that put fear into Charlotte.

"It's been difficult for her since, but we were both very clear that we didn't want that to be our story, our memory of Scotland."
