Brendan Rodgers

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers is moving his family to the city after they were terrorised by burglars.

Rodgers was speaking for the first time about the ‘horrendous’ raid at his home in East Dunbartonshire. He revealed that his wife and six year old step-daughter were forced to lock themselves in a bathroom during the break-in.

The burglary came just after a week after Rodgers decided to leave Scottish Champions Celtic for a return to the Premier League with the Foxes.

He revealed that his family will leave Scotland and move to the Leicester area permanently this weekend.

But he added: “I don’t want to detract from the fact we has an amazing time as a family in Scotland”.

Police Scotland have confirmed they are investigating the incident.

Rodgers will take charge of his first game at the King Power stadium this weekend, with the visit of Premier League strugglers Fulham.
