Brendan Rodgers’ wife and stepdaughter are believed to have been inside his Dunbartonshire home when it was broken into.
Charlotte Rodgers nee Searle and her six-year-old daughter, Lola, hid in the locked bathroom as housebreakers ransacked the luxury property in Bearsden.
Family possessions were stolen, including medals won during Rodgers’ employment as Celtic manager.
BBC Scotland reporter Aileen Clark told Reporting Scotland viewers that all the medals and trophies won by the manager had gone in the raid.
Police confirmed that the Bearsden house was broken into at 02:00 on Wednesday, but no one was hurt.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “At around 01:55 on Wednesday, 6 March, police received a report of a break-in at a property in Bearsden.
“No one was injured in the incident but a number of items were stolen from the property.”
Police added that an investigation had begun and inquiries were ongoing.
Rodgers was appointed Leicester City’s new manager at the end of February after leaving his job at Celtic.
The Northern Irishman signed a contract with the English Premier League club until June 2022.
