Undesired Premier League return for Brendan Rodgers as Leicester lose to Watford

Brendan Rodgers says he could manage Celtic again

Rodgers, back in the Premier League for the first time since losing his job at Liverpool in October 2015, looked to be opening his Foxes tenure with a battling point after Jamie Vardy cancelled out Troy Deeney's fifth-minute opener - but Andre Gray ruined his day when he pounced for an injury-time victor at Vicarage Road.

While admitting his side needs to learn lessons from the nature of their defeat, Rodgers remains upbeat about what they can achieve. I thought we played well in the first half - better than the second.

He spoke enthusiastically about a "fantastic group of players" with a great...

Leicester responded to the goal with flickers of promise, but their first half was one of almost moments rather than clear chances.

He said: "The goal at the end is a case of managing the game".

Watford manager Javi Gracia hailed captain Deeney's impact as they moved to 43 points from 29 games, behind seventh-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers on goal difference.

Elsewhere, Lewis Morgan confirmed he will be in the next season of "Sunderland till I die" - a documentary following the trials and tribulations of Sunderland as they try to work their way back up to the Premier League.

The Portuguese legend hailed Celtic's status but understood the Northern Irishman's desire to manage in the Premier League.

After the game, the Watford boss told Sky Sports: "I think everybody knows how important Troy is for us". Gracia is refusing to be complacent, however, and believes his players want to achieve even more this campaign.

"We are enjoying the season".

Rodgers bailed on the Scottish champions last week after Leicester came calling following the sacking of Claude Puel.
