Former Celtic boss Gordon Strachan names Brendan Rodgers as the perfect candidate to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

Former Celtic manager Gordon Strachan has named the Hoops' current boss Brendan Rodgers as the ideal candidate to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

The Gunners announced last week that the Frenchman will leave the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season, bringing his 22-year reign to an end.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Strachan said that Rodgers's experience at Celtic and Liverpool makes him a good fit for the Arsenal job.

"A bonus you get as Celtic manager is you play in the Champions League and you have to deal with the top, top teams - so there's preparation there," he said. "But also, Brendan has done it at Liverpool.

"Some of the managers who are being talked about [for the Arsenal job] have never been anywhere near winning the Premier League like Brendan was at Liverpool

"Celtic understood when they took Brendan on that if he did a great job, which he has done there, he would get the call somewhere else."

Rodgers was previously linked with the Arsenal job, although the latest reports suggest that the club's interest in him as cooled in favour of other candidates.
