Nobody at Celtic will be happy about the reportedly impending departure of Brendan Rodgers, who according to the BBC is set for a move to Leicester City. 

He’s been a fantastic manager for Celtic, and despite the fact that the Hoops are on the verge of a historic end to the season, he’s decided to leave us in the lurch.

Unsurprisingly, this hasn’t gone down well with many people, including former Celtic man Chris Sutton. The BT Sport pundit has reacted to the news, and he’s been brutally honest.

As per BT Sport, Sutton said: ‘Quite frankly, it stinks, the timing of it stinks. Going to a club who are playing for absolutely nothing.’

He added: ‘I am really disappointed and I think there are a lot of Celtic fans out there as well who will feel let down.’

Certainly, Rodgers has done brilliantly, and if he had left at the end of the season, it would be disappointing but you could understand it. However, to leave us in the middle of a tough campaign and with so much work still to do; some would say it’s unforgivable.

Sure, he’ll want to get a headstart on this new project, but at what cost to his reputation? We’re betting that his legacy at Celtic will be left in tatters as a result.

Clearly, Sutton is not happy at all, and his reaction is certainly reflective of the reaction that most Celtic fans likely had when waking up to the news this morning.

  • I can’t understand what all the fuss is about. He’s not had the banking of the biskit tin board; he has no clue how to play in Europe – results testify to that; has a squad of nursery players; couldn’t muster an attack against a quality team if his life depended on it. Hell, Lennon & Barcelona or Ronkers & PSG anyone????

    Let’s get Lennon back. Wears his heart on his sleave and gets a lot more from his players.

    Billy bhoy

  • What reasons would BR have for joining Leicester? Trophies? Nae chance.European football? Nae chance.Money? The guy is loaded so how much money is enough? As Big Chris states,this stinks….

  • Must think he can buy his way out of trouble, good manager, maybe thinks he’s better than he actually is.will be interesting to see where they are placed at the end of next season. 1 million a year at Celtic, closer to 5 million a year and mega bucks to spend on players . No happy but hae ho, life goes on.

  • Brendan coming oot with stuff like “dumping his friends for life to work with them” (Leicester)
    Then the London Times reporting that Leicester was quite willing to have Brendan join them at end of season. Then a pic showing them wearing tops with ‘King Power’ emblazoned.
    Finally, our bold BR saying he’s taken Celtic as far as he could take them even though we’re going for treble-treble!!!
    Fcuk – someone awaken me up
