These are the shocking claims of Hoops legend and Starsport columnist Charlie Nicholas.
Rodgers has taken two wins in senior management at Parkhead.
But the current campaign has received a poor rating, with Rodgers exposing his frustration over lack of support in the transfer market.
Celtic also failed to reach the group stage of the Champions League. He is only fifth in the Scottish Premier League table – six points behind championship leader Hearts.
And Nicholas thinks the nightmare will mean the end of the season for Rodgers early next year.
"I am not sure if Brendan Rodgers will still be Celtic Manager at the end of January," Nicholas wrote Scottish Daily Star,
"It looks like the relationship between Brendan and Peter Lawwell has broken.
"Major shareholder Dermot Desmond seems to have to intervene and have some strong words with them.
"I am not sure that Brendan Rodgers will be Celtic Manager at the end of January"
"I do not agree with Desmond in many ways, but at least he has shown leadership qualities to solve potential problems.
"The claims that are making the rounds are that Rodgers was told to get the team back on track while the chief executive was asked to do everything possible to support his manager.
"But if there's a serious breakdown in their relationship, you can get things back to what they were before.
"Rodgers and Lawwell may pose for occasional photography, but it's clear the relationship is not working anymore.
"Brendan seems to have lost some of his ride with everything that has happened since the summer, he probably knows in his head that things are coming to an end.
"Okay, maybe he said he refused an offer from China, but other more attractive offers will come.
"Will he reject her so easily, especially if he does not get what he wants at Celtic?"
