Watch: Brendan Rodgers can come to Ballymena when he wins as many trophies as me, says Jeffrey

Ballymena United boss David Jeffrey has challenged Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers to match his managerial record before taking his job at the Showgrounds.

Rodgers said during the week that he didn't mind if he ended up in the Premier League or at Ballymena United after his days at Celtic Park are over.

But he's not going to slide into Jeffrey's chair all that easily.

After their win over Ballinamallard, a smiling DJ told BBC Sport NI: "That was very nice of Brendan to remember his home team and he certainly has been successful but Brian McLaughlin (Assistant Manager) and I have done six doubles in seven years, we've done the clean sweep, we've won an All-Ireland so maybe when Brendan wins that amount of trophies, he can come back to Ballymena."

David Jeffrey reacts to Celtic FC manager Brendan Rodgers comments on possibly returning to manage Ballymena United FC.
