You should read what Celtic fans thought of him. Their board couldnt wait to pack him off to Leicester.Wow - well, at least you've made your opinion clear and easy to spot. No need to try and have that discussion.
That said, your opinion differs from mine.
Rodgers was slapped with the descriptor "arrogant" by the media and it seems a portion of the fanbase of Liverpool took heartily to it because he wasn't the manager they wanted. Fans of teams he doesn't manage also seem to love using it.
From what I've seen, the biggest fault he had was being willing to stand up for himself and his team when reporters took crack shots at him or the team.
Regardless, he managed to get Swansea to the Premier League.
He set the foundation for Liverpool returning to top part of the table and almost won the league in a season where noone expected them to challenge.
He took 2 titles with Celtic.
He finished 5th with Leicester.
Along the way he won the LMA Manager of the year with Liverpool, and the Scotland manager of the year with Celtic.
That's not bad managing. You may not like him, and that's your choice (though I'm willing to bet you don't know him), but he's not a bad manager.
