Why Brendan Rodgers Sits on the Brink of a Volcano of Trouble at Celtic

Brendan Rodgers could be on the brink of losing his job as Celtic manager, with his side knocked out of the Champions League after losing 3-2 on aggregate to AEK Athens in the third qualifying round, having been beaten 2-1 in the second leg in Greece.

AEK bagged an early lead, Rodrigo Galo netting after just six minutes to put the Hoops behind - and the Greek side made a similarly fast start to the second period, Lampropoulos flicking the ball on to Marko Livaja, who nodded the ball into the back of the net with most of the second half still to play.
