Who says romance is dead?

Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been pictured in Times Square proposing to his girlfriend Charlotte Searle.

Mum-of-one Ms Searle accepted the proposal.

The 43-year-old's proposal was spotted by Liverpool fan Craig Allen, who said he saw him hand Ms Searle, 33, a bouquet of roses before getting down on one knee.

"I saw this bloke proposing and took snaps to show my girlfriend," Mr Allen, who was waiting outside a shop while his partner shopped inside, told 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."

Rodgers divorced his wife of 14 years, Susan, in December and just 68 days on he has taken the first important step towards another trip down the aisle.

Ms Searle was Liverpool's travel coordinator when she first met Rodgers - who was paid £5million-a-year as the club's manager - in 2013.

Rodgers, who came so close to winning the Premier League title with Liverpool in 2013/14, was sacked as Reds manager back last October and replaced with Jurgen Klopp.
