The Northern Irishman has won finals with Swansea, Celtic and Leicester.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers' 100 per cent record in finals extended to seven at the weekend when the Foxes defeated Chelsea 1-0 at Wembley to claim the FA Cup.

Here, the PA news agency looks at each of the Northern Irishman's triumphs.

The Swans became the first non-English Premier League club after Scott Sinclair's hat-trick helped them defeat Rodgers' former employers Reading in a Wembley thriller. Sinclair's 21st-minute penalty and finish a minute later, plus an effort from Stephen Dobbie, put Swansea 3-0 up before Brian McDermott's Royals fought back after the break thanks to a Joe Allen own goal and Matt Mills' header. Sinclair then completed his treble with another spot-kick in the 80th minute.

Celtic sealed a treble and unbeaten domestic season with another win against Derek McInnes' side, this time coming from behind at Hampden. Jonny Hayes' ninth-minute opener was cancelled out by Stuart Armstrong two minutes later and a dramatic finale then saw Rogic fire in the winner in stoppage time.

Motherwell 0 Celtic 2, Scottish League Cup final – November 26, 2017

The first step towards back-to-back trebles came after a goal from Forrest in the 49th minute and a Dembele penalty on the hour mark against Stephen Robinson's Motherwell. The spot-kick was awarded for a foul on Sinclair by Well defender Cedric Kipre, who was sent off.

Rodgers' men secured the first 'double treble' in Scottish football history thanks to another 2-0 win over Robinson's team. Callum McGregor put the Hoops ahead in the 11th minute and Olivier Ntcham doubled the lead after 25 minutes.

Celtic 1 Aberdeen 0, Scottish League Cup final – December 2, 2018

Celtic picked up their seventh trophy under Rodgers – and what would be the last before his departure – following Ryan Christie's goal in first-half stoppage-time.

Chelsea 0 Leicester 1, FA Cup final – May 15, 2021

Youri Tielemans' stunning 63rd-minute strike proved the winner as Leicester defeated Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea to claim the FA Cup for the first time in their history. Kasper Schmeichel pulled off some superb saves for the Foxes, and former Leicester full-back Ben Chilwell saw a last-gasp effort ruled out for offside after a video assistant referee review.
