Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has proven his love for the big occasion once again by proposing to girlfriend Charlotte Searle in New York’s Times Square.
The 43-year-old Northern Irishman got down on one knee to pop the question just 68 days after finalising his divorce from his former wife Susan.
Charlotte and Brendan met while they were both working for Liverpool – Rodgers was the manager while Miss Searle was the club’s travel coordinator.
Rodgers, 43, spent Valentine’s weekend in New York with Searle – 10 years his junior – and popped the question in front of bemused onlookers, reports the Sun.
The ex-Reds chief presented her with a bouquet of roses before popping the question.
Liverpool fan Craig Allen, 27, told the Sun: “I saw this bloke proposing and took snaps to show my girlfriend.
“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.”
Rodgers, 43, separated from his ex-wife in the summer of 2014. Their divorce forced them to split their multimillion-pound property empire, consisting of 102 houses.
The buy-to-let portfolio cost £32,000 just to be valued, and is believed to be worth tens of millions of pounds.
Ms Rodgers, 42, was with her husband for more than 20 years and married for 14 before they separated. Their divorce was finalised on December 7 last year.
