BRENDAN RODGERS IS set for some TV punditry with Doha-based channel beIN Sports.

According to former Sky Sports anchor Richard Keys, who now fronts the network’s football coverage in the Middle East, beIN will be bringing in the Northern Irishman but gave no indication of when it was likely to happen.

Since losing his job as Liverpool manager earlier this month, Rodgers has taken a holiday in Spain though rumours have linked him with a quick return to management at Aston Villa.

Keys resigned from Sky in January 2011 over his role in a controversial sexism scandal that saw long-term analyst and co-commentator Andy Gray being sacked shortly before.

The pair subsequently returned to sports media and began co-hosting a radio show on TalkSport. In 2013, they made a TV comeback with beIN Sports and moved to Qatar.

The network – which also has a Paris base and a North American arm in Miami – carries the rights to a litany of football tournaments, including the Premier League and Champions League.
