JOHN HARTSON has tonight put the Premier League fan boys in their place when the topic of Brendan Rodgers being brought in by Leicester to manage the struggling English side next season.
When the question was put to John his first instinct was to say ‘why?’.
The former Celtic striker then set the record straight as to what Brendan Rodgers was doing at Parkhead and how special it was to get to ten in a row.
10-in-a-row with Celtic? 🍀
Or a move to Leicester? 🦊
"I would be amazed if Brendan Rodgers came here. He is living the dream at Celtic."

Even when pushed to on the issue about failures in Europe and Rodgers looking to get some success elsewhere in that regard, John quickly hit back with Leicester aren’t in Europe and won’t be next term.
This was still not enough for Michael Owen who gave Celtic the standard patronising ‘Celtic are a huge club’ sound bite before talking about how Brendan Rodgers fancies himself as a very top manager and that he can’t prove that in the SPFL but somehow could prove it at a club like Leicester.
The Premier League fan boys will never learn.
