However, the London-born recently spoke of his battle with alcoholism, gambling addiction and depression something he's discussed with Rodgers.

With Caulker likely to leave QPR, reports from south of the border claimed Rodgers could offer him a chance to rebuild his career in Glasgow.

The Scottish side are also in need of a centre-back to fill in for the injured Dedryck Boyata who could face up to three months on the sidelines. The kid messaged me.

'We spoke at length about his life and his situation and just where he is at. "He is obviously a QPR player and I was only too happy to speak to him and help him try to shape his life really". He is a boy that, if he can get it together and find a peace, then he is an awesome talent. He is 6ft 3in, quick, strong, he can play.

Rodgers has worked with the centre-back at both Swansea City and Liverpool, and it appears that he sees the England global as another option at the back. You would take him to war with you. He is an incredible young footballer, but he is suffering. Having had experience in trying to help him previously, I was only too happy to do that. He is a boy that I have spoken to. Initially it is a cry for help'.

Celtic have already made one key signing this summer with the £4.5m transfer of Olivier Ntcham from Manchester City.

The 21-year-old is the most expensive Celtic signing in a decade, and his new manager is confident he will deliver.

Caulker has been doing individual training in pre-season away from the rest of the squad who are enjoying their pre-season tour.

He said: "I spoke to Steven as a former manager".

"With Olivier, I've been looking for this type of player for about a year". We got Moussa [Dembele] in and we got Scott [Sinclair] in and then I felt in midfield, especially at the highest level, it is very important to have a high level of technique with that speed and power'.
