Former Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers can’t seem to stop talking about the Hoops.

Following on from an interview with The Daily Record last week, in which he revealed 2016 transfer information about Kieran Tierney, the Leicester man has returned to the same paper to get into his Celtic exit.

Ditching Celtic mid-season just before a crucial match against Hearts at Tynecastle, as we chased a third successive treble, Rodgers left us in the lurch.

With Neil Lennon moving the team forward at home and abroad our former boss is a growing irrelevance, but his latest sob story just comes across as rather insulting to fans who can’t get over the nature of his February departure.

Sob story

Rodgers feels it’s something he had to do, telling The Daily Record: “Iโ€™ve said it many times, it was incredibly difficult.

“It was a really tough call from a personal perspective and a professional one because my relationship with everyone at the club was great form the boardroom to the dressing room.

“But perhaps now people will have a better understanding of why I made the choice to go when I did.”

His comments reference the form of Leicester City, who have just moved into second position in the English Premier League. Was it worth abandoning Celtic to ensure an extra few months of Foxes preparation? Rodgers appears to think so.

Fan reaction

It’s fair to say his comments have gone down like a lead balloon with some fans.

Rodgers simply doesn’t have the credibility to communicate with the Celtic support effectively anymore, so if he was hoping these comments would help fans understand why he left, he’s sorely mistaken.

Despite his incredible record and trophy success at Celtic Park, it’ll be a long time until some supporters are ready to hear what he has to say about the Hoops.

These fans took to Twitter today to share their thoughts…
