Brendan Rodgers was getting it in the neck from Celtic supporters once again last night regarding a Leicester City Q&A.

The Northern Irishman led Celtic to back-to-back trebles. He also had the Hoops eight points clear at the top of the Premiership and on course for a treble treble too.

And whilst his achievements will forever be engrained in Celtic’s history, Rodgers’ departure still hasn’t gotten any less sour.


The former Liverpool and Swansea boss was down in the Premier League in a heartbeat once interest from Leicester had come up. And with big games coming up for the Hoops, it was a poor show from him. Hoops fans haven’t taken the move lightly, and were back on Twitter to criticise Rodgers during a Leicester Q&A.

Rodgers is being proved 100% wrong

One of the key talking points from Rodgers’ first presser at Leicester was his belief that Celtic fans were just worried. He seemed to believe that all of the criticism he received was in the heat of the moment.

Yet, here we are nearly two months from the move, and supporters haven’t changed their minds. There’s still an overwhelming feeling of betrayal in Rodgers; departure. It came across as opportunistic, and at the expense of the club he claimed to love so much.

It makes you wonder if Rodgers will ever stop receiving criticism from the Celtic support. This was a move that left the support as hurt as they’ve felt in a long time. Perhaps not since Mo Johnston’s move to Rangers have the fans felt such betrayal from one man.

Rodgers once laughably said that he could return one day as Celtic manager. At this stage, that’s looking as popular a verdict as Kenny Miller having one last spell at Parkhead.

This decision to leave Celtic could continue to haunt him yet. Supporters won’t be letting this go anytime soon, and Rodgers can expect plenty of future criticism for the move both short-term and long-term.

It’s safe to say he likely won’t step inside Parkhead again. If he did it would take some amount of guts with the anger many still have towards him.
