Celtic won’t sell their star to Chelsea

Celtic won't sell their star to Chelsea

Brendan Rodgers is not surprised by reported interest in Craig Gordon from Chelsea – but maintains the Celtic goalkeeper will not move.

The former Sunderland player has been linked by a number of newspapers with a switch to Stamford Bridge if Asmir Begovic leaves for Bournemouth.

Of claims Antonio Conte is keen on the Scotland international, Rodgers said: “If it is the case then of course we don’t want to sell him.

“I am not surprised. His contract is up at the end of the season but there is an option for the club.

“But it is not something we would consider really. It is a difficult decision for a player, especially if you are getting financial rewards at the end of it.”
