Arsenal job in Brendan Rodgers’ sights after Leicester appointment

Brendan Rodgers

Meanwhile, Celtic have named former manager Neil Lennon as their interim boss until the end of the season.

Packie Bonner believes that the timing of Brendan Rodgers departure from Celtic will sour his place in the affections of the club's support.

Leicester have moved quickly for Rodgers after sacking Claude Puel following their 4-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.

Dembele and Rodgers had some really good days together at Celtic but as Tuesday proves the lustre of those seems to have long since worn off.

He left Celtic in controversial circumstances, publicly criticising Rodgers and the club for their handling of Lyon's interest in him.

Brendan Rodgers has verbally agreed to become Leicester City's new manager and could be installed before Tuesday night's kick-off against Brighton, Sky Sports News understands.

"I have given everything to Celtic as a player and manager already in my career and I am ready to do the same again". This is an opportunity he wished to pursue and that is something we have to respect.




Brendan then embarked upon a highly successful spell as manager of then-Championship side Swansea City.

"I'm very privileged and honoured to be here as Leicester City manager and I'll give my life to make the supporters proud of their club". Rodgers also completed the first of two domestic trebles as he lifted the Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup, repeating the feat in 2017-18.

Lennon's whirlwind start to his second stint as Celtic manager will see the league assignment at Tynecastle followed by Saturday's Scottish Cup quarter-final against former club Hibs at Easter Road.

Though the Anfield faithful remain hopeful their former boss could lure some of their peripheral players to the King Power, they do know where to draw the line, with one fan stating "Even Rodgers wouldn't buy Mignolet".

The Northern Irishman has won seven trophies out of seven since replacing Ronny Deila in 2016.

The Swans won widespread plaudits for an impressive first season under Rodgers in the Premier League in 2011/12, where their stylish displays helped them to an 11th-placed finish.
