Brendan Rodgers' wife and stepdaughter are believed to have been inside his East Dunbartonshire home when it was broken into.

The BBC understands Charlotte Searle and her six-year-old daughter hid as burglars ransacked the property.

Family possessions were stolen, including medals won during Rodgers' reign as Celtic manager.

Police confirmed that the Bearsden house was broken into at 02:00 on Wednesday, but no-one was hurt.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "At around 01:55 on Wednesday 6 March, police received a report of a break-in at a property in Bearsden.

"No one was injured in the incident but a number of items were stolen from the property."

Police added that an investigation had begun and inquiries were ongoing.

Rodgers was appointed Leicester City's new manager at the end of February after leaving his job at Celtic.

The Northern Irishman signed a contract with the English Premier League club until June 2022.
