The family of former Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers have been left badly shaken, after burglars invaded their Glasgow home in the early hours of this morning.
Rodgers' wife and six-year old stepdaughter were in the house when the incident took place, barricading themselves into a bathroom as the intruders ransacked their home, stealing a number of items.
At approximately 1am last night, Charlotte and daughter Lola were awoken when they heard voiced coming from the downstairs part of their home. The burglars would then enter the bedroom where the pair were located. They would lock themselves into a bathroom while the intruders went through there personal belongings.
They are believed to have exited the home with a number of boxes containing items belonging to the Leicester boss, some of which were from his time at Celtic, including as medals and trophies. Rodgers was in the English Midlands at the time of the break-in.

A police investigation into the events is now ongoing. Rodgers brought to an end his two-and-a-half year stay at Celtic last week, having moved back to the Premier League with Leicester City.
He was wildly successful during his time in Glasgow, winning all six domestic trophies in an unprecedented 'double treble'. Celtic were are well on course to repeat that feat this season, having already won the League cup and having a healthy lead at the top of the SPL.
