Former Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has been nominated for manager of the month in the English Premier League after guiding his Leicester City side to an unbeaten start to the season.

Rodgers' men have won two and drawn two of their first four matches in this season's first fixtures.

The Foxes have started well and Rodgers is up against Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Roy Hodgson for the first gong of the new season.

Brendan Rodgers sent Kris Boyd furious text after striker praised Neil Lennon's Old Firm tactics

Their two draws came in tough contests against Wolves at home and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

And they've managed to beat Sheffield United and Bournemouth in their other two matches.

Rodgers made headlines earlier this week after ex-Rangers striker Kris Boyd claimed he sent a "prickly" text when the striker praised Neil Lennon's tactics during Celtic's win over Gers last weekend.

The former Scotland star claimed Rodgers didn't take too kindly to criticism of "tippy tappy" football.
