Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was in New York this weekend with his girlfriend Charlotte Searle, and he used that time to prove his love for the big occasion once again, by proposing to her in New York’s Times Square.
The 43-year-old Northern Irishman divorced his wife of 14 years, Susan, in December, and just 68 days later, got down on one knee to pop out the question once again. She is said to have been ‘befriended’ by the former Swansea and Reading boss, while in the process of divorcing her husband, Steven Hind.
Charlotte and Brendan met while they were both working for Liverpool – Miss Searle was Liverpool’s travel coordinator while Rodgers was the manager.
He was spotted doing so by Craig Allen, who happened to be a Liverpool fan, and thus described the romantic scene.
“I saw this bloke proposing and took snaps to show my girlfriend,” said Craig Allen to The Sun.
“I was gobsmacked when I saw it was Rodgers. They stopped off in a Mercedes, he popped the question in front of a photographer, put the ring on, and away they went.”
