Brendan Rodgers has all but completed his move after reportedly agreeing to leave Celtic for Leicester.
Sky Sports have reported that a verbal agreement is now in place. And, to rub salt into the wounds of the Celtic support, Rodgers has been pictured strolling around the King Power Stadium.

In the images, Rodgers can be seen strolling down the touchline at the King Power. He’s noticeably wearing a blue tie, and typical of the whole story, it certainly didn’t take him long.
The speed of this arrangement is eyebrow-raising
The whole speed of this transition is incredible. Just 24 hours ago, Rodgers was smiling as he took training. Celtic were in confident mood ahead of a tough trip to Tynecastle, and the Hoops were looking to kick on in their quest for eight in-a-row.
Yet, for the average Celtic fan, it appears Rodgers has certainly been quick to jump on the Leicester bandwagon.
Only last night did the interest start to seem concrete. Yet, by this afternoon Rodgers is down there sporting a blue tie and getting set to leave Parkhead.
Fans are furious, and rightly so. Rodgers has tarnished plenty of the good he’s done in Glasgow. It wouldn’t overly matter if he came back and rejected Leicester anyway – he’s now played his hand.
The double-treble winner, whether you like him or not, has left the club at a crucial time. He’s turned his back on the supporters and shown himself up to be only out for himself.
The Premier League was always going to be in Rodgers’ future at some stage. After all, he came out and said as much to TalkSPORT last season. But, as Rodgers also said in the same interview, it didn’t seem like being at any point in the near future.
But today we learned a lot about our “manager”. He’s clearly not the Celtic supporter the rest of us are. So it’s goodbye and good riddance.
