Brendan Rodgers to Leicester has certainly intensified over the last 48 hours.

Firstly, the Foxes were mauled 4-1 at home by Crystal Palace. Claude Puel then found himself sacked from his post the next day as Leicester chiefs had clearly had enough.

And, today, a report in the Irish Independent claims that Leicester are readying a £7.5million compensation package for Celtic man Rodgers.

As you can imagine, this isn’t a story that has gone down well with the Hoops faithful. Rodgers’ double-treble success has secured his status as an iconic figure at Parkhead.

And Celtic fans have since been reacting to the news on Twitter. Here’s a glimpse as to what the Hoops fans are saying.


The general feeling of the support is one of confidence

It’s clear the Celtic supporters don’t believe Rodgers will entertain an offer from Leicester.

It would certainly be a lot more soothing for fans if Rodgers denied he’s interested in a move to the Foxes. Football rarely works like that, however, and the Northern Irishman has done everything he can outside of that to commit himself to Parkhead.

In truth, this is all about what Rodgers truly values. If Leicester get to speak to him, we would have to hope that Rodgers values medals over money.

Leicester are certainly a club with some potential, but Celtic remain a much bigger footballing institution. Considering 10-in-a-row is growing closer and closer, you have to imagine Rodgers is itching to see that through.

A move to the Premier League has never left the paper talk since Rodgers moved to Celtic. He’s been linked with moves to the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Stoke, and now Leicester to name a few. So long as he’s just up the road, this won’t ever change.

In a sense, this must be getting tiresome for the Hoops manager. He’ll know in his mind exactly what he wants to do. He doesn’t need to keep getting questioned on vacancies that haven’t yet seen the club approach Celtic.

We just have to hope, if Leicester do come calling, that Rodgers subsequently sees his long-term future in Glasgow.
