Swindon Town swoop for Anton Rodgers

Swindon Town sign midfielder Anton Rodgers, the son of Liverpool manager Brendan, on a one-year deal.

Former Oldham Athletic midfielder Anton Rodgers has penned a one-year contract with Swindon Town.

Rodgers, the son of Liverpool manager Brendan, was released by the Latics at the end of the last campaign, but the former Chelsea youth player is delighted to be moving to a club closer to home.

The 21-year-old told the club's official website: "I'm from down the road in Reading so it was something that I was interested in doing and I'm glad it's done now.

"I started my professional career at Brighton before moving to Oldham. I was close to my family there, with my dad at Liverpool but I just wanted to move closer to home.

"Thankfully, Swindon were interested and it was something that I could do."

Rodgers made just 14 appearances during his time at Boundary Park.
