Brendan Rodgers proposes to girlfriend on Times Square, the internet takes the p*ss

He can't even be romantic

Conan Doherty

Even when he’s successful, he’s hounded.

Brendan Rodgers can’t even be noble. He can’t be a good guy and he sure as hell can’t even be romantic. Not without the internet ripping the piss out of him anyway.

Photographs have emerged of the former Liverpool boss getting down on one knee and proposing to his girlfriend in New York over Valentine’s weekend.

Fair play, you’d think.

In a normal case, sure.

But this is no normal case. This is a Brendan Rodgers case.

She even looked happy.

The timing was outstanding.

Cue: Trolling.

Leading by example.


That one’s not for everyone though.

68 days was an awful long time.

PDA levels: Brodge.


The one that got away.


Cliché? Brendan?

Don’t worry, someone will do it.
