Newcastle are believed to be looking at the direction of a former Liverpool manager to replace the existing one, Rafa Benitez.

Celtic manager and former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers have been identified as a replacement for the embattled manager.

The St James park side have struggled this session as they easily gave out points to their opponents this season.

Led by a former Liverpool coach Benitez, Newcastle suffered defeat to Arsenal some weeks back and the hope of seeing a major win was squashed after their 2-0 lead against struggling Manchester United was cancelled with another addition as the Red Devils came from behind to secure a victory.

With the situation seeming unchanged, Newcastle board are making frantic efforts to move for the Celtic manager who was in charge of the Reds for the rescue.

Although, it has been reported that Benitez would be given more time until January to turn things around but if the situation persists, he would be shown the way out of the club.

The Magpies under the former Liverpool manager have earned just two points after 8 games in the English Premier League.

The experienced manager seems to be finding it difficult at the club to make an impact and that may cost him his job anytime soon.

However, Rodgers who has won back-to-back trebles in Scotland could be available for the challenge.
