Celtic fans are waking up to some shell shocking news this morning, Brendan Rodgers talks with Leicester City. Neil Lennon will become Celtic manager at least until the end of the season.
Maybe the timing is what is hurting Celtic fans the most; the timing is quite bizarre. Shock quickly turns to anger and a large number of Celtic fans are directing that anger at one person, Peter Lawwell.
There were snippets at the end of the summer transfer window that Brendan Rodgers was not too happy with how summer signings we’re conducted. The season started and everyone looked to of moved on. But there were still some people in the media claiming all was not well between Rodgers and Lawwell.
This mornings news has only heightened speculation, with some Celtic fans in no doubt why Rodgers is leaving with still two trophies left to win in the next three months.

Possibly. But no matter how fractious it is with Lawwell he could have at least seen out the next 3 months. Instead, Rogers has sent a big GIFRUY – not to Lawwell, but to the fans.

We knew it was doomed for Rodgers from day one when he shook Peter Lawwell’s hand wae a suit on that was to big for him. Sleeve was over his hands and the fingers. @siferry8

There is a ton of posts all over social media with Celtic fans venting their frustrations at one man. Rodgers is too classy to wash dirty laundry in public; he will leave thanking everyone for their support.
