Celtic boss Rodgers mocks Liverpool flop Balotelli

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has enjoyed a joke at the expense of former Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli.

Rodgers was in good spirits at the club's Player of the Year awards on Sunday night when he made the tongue-in-cheek claim.

During a Q and A the former Liverpool and Swansea boss was asked by a Hoops fan, who the best player he has coached was.

He laughed: “Mario Balotelli! He was a fantastic player."

The response was met the hilarity from the huge crowd at the Double Tree Hilton hotel in Glasgow.
