Rodgers: Burglary was 'horrendous'

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has spoken about the recent burglary at his home in Glasgow. The former Celtic boss, who last week departed Parkhead for a fresh challenge in the Premier League with the Foxes saw his home broken into whilst he was away, but his wife and step-child upstairs.

Burglars stole family possessions, with medals the Northern Irishmen won whilst in charge of the SPL titans seemingly the main thing targeted. Charlotte Searle, Rodgers' wife and her six-year-old daughter were forced to hide upstairs while thieves ransacked their property in East Dumbartonshire. Rodgers said that the "horrendous" ordeal gave his family a massive "fright".

"It's obviously something that's not nice for any family to go through," said the former Liverpool boss.

"It gave the girls a fright," he added.

Despite the break-in, Rodgers insisted that he will not let what has happened detract from his time with Celtic, the club he spent two-and-a-half seasons managing.

"The last 10 days there's been a lot of talk about my move to here.

"I don't want to detract from… we had an amazing time as a family in Scotland, in Glasgow in particular. The people there were amazing, the experiences that we had on and off the field will live with us and we're not going to let something like this, or some of the reaction over the last 10 days cloud any of that.

"It's an unfortunate incident, it's sad for the girls - for someone to come in at night - it's horrendous really, I just made sure they were secure up there.

"We are looking to buy a home here in Leicester. They will move down very soon. We will throw our lives into here and I look forward to that."

With Rodgers in the Midlands preparing for Leicester's visit of Fulham this weekend, wife Charlotte and her daughter, Lola, were asleep when burglars broke into the property at approximately 1am on Wednesday morning. They were forced to hide in the upstairs bathroom while intruders rummaged through the family's belongings.

"We've dealt with it," Rodgers said.

"There's been a great support out there for us and they're both fine and safe, which is important."

Having lost his first match in charge of the Foxes, Brendan Rodgers will be looking to put the events of the last week behind him as his side welcome strugglers Fulham to the King Power Stadium this Saturday.
