Celtic Fans Unfurl Banner To Slam Leicester City Defector Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers

It is perhaps a sign of how far Scottish football has fallen in the eyes of many that Rodgers made a decision to swerve the opportunity for more silverware with Celtic in order to move south of the border and to take charge of a mid-table Premier League club.

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes doesn't believe the departure of Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers will have any real effect on the title race.

The pair helped the Celtic Park outfit win the Scottish League Championship, Cup and League Cup last season.

Rodgers and Rafael Benitez were both touted as potential candidates and, although the pair each insisted they were focused on their current jobs, it appears the Celtic coach is set to leave the Scottish Premiership champions.

Leicester are on the hunt for a new manager after Claude Puel was sacked on Sunday following a 4-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace.

"This is a club that means a lot to me".

Former Watford, Reading and Swansea manager Rodgers took charge of Liverpool in 2012 and in the 2013-14 season, came agonisingly close to ending the club's title drought before Manchester City pipped his side on the final day of the season.

Hearts have been at best inconsistent in the league this season, but they always ensure a hard game for Celtic when they come calling. I will be doing all I can to continue the great work that has gone on in recent years.

"Neil has already enjoyed a hugely successful spell as manager of Celtic and, of course, served the club with distinction as player and captain over so many years", said Celtic in a statement.

Lennon admits former team-mate John Kennedy, who has stepped up from first-team coach to assistant manager, will be vital for continuity. His achievements are historic.

'I wish the club nothing but good fortune going forward.

Little over 24 hours had passed since Rodgers' exit for Leicester City by the time the match kicked off at Tynecastle, and Lennon conceded it had been "difficult" for the players.
