Brendan Rodgers Set To Walk Out On Celtic To Take Over At Leicester Cityby Simon Lillicrap / 26 February 2019, 09:32Tweet
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is holding talks with Leicester City as he prepares to take over at the club. Rodgers will return to the Premier League where he enjoyed relative success with Swansea and Liverpool, before moving north of the border. Rodgers was as short as ⅙ to take the job and now looks set to take over the club who won the Premier League back in 2016.
Meanwhile, Scottish Premier League leaders Celtic look set to win the fabled treble-treble, with or without Rodgers in charge, but they are turning to an old friend to steer them to more success. Neil Lennon is set to return to Celtic Park on a deal until the end of the season, having already spent four years as the manager between 2010 and 2014.
Lennon, a celtic legend, will be welcomed back with open arms after his spell at Hibernian, but there is still a sense of bitterness in the air as Rodgers was meant to be the manager that lead them to ten league titles in a row. Now, it appears he is walking out on them for a club languishing in 12th in the Premier League.
Leicester do boast a talented young squad that Rodgers should be able to get the best out of. His football with Swansea was sumptuous as he lead them back to the promised land and of course there was never a dull moment when he was in charge of Liverpool as he almost lead them to that elusive Premier League title.
With Suarez, Sterling and Sturridge up front, Liverpool played some of the most exciting football the Premier League has seen, even if their defence was a little shoddy. Ultimately it was that weak back line that probably cost them the title, as Manchester City snuck in to win it.
But now Rodgers looks to be back in the big time and could even be at the King Power tonight, as Leicester host Brighton.
