In the last few minutes, two respected journalists who are very close to the club have reported Brendan Rodgers has accepted the job at Leicester and Neil Lennon will come into the club on an interim basis for the rest of the season.

Brendan Rodgers, Chris Davies, Kolo Toule have all agreed to go to Leicester. Neil Lennon to take charge until the end of the season at Celtic. Story to follow.

Both journalists are well versed in what’s going on at Celtic and they’re both hearing the same thing this morning and are talking like its fact and not speculation.
This would come as a massive shock to the Celtic support who would not have felt Brendan would leave at all never mind with three months of the season still to go.
Celtic have won everything in their path domestically since Brendan Rodgers to come in and with so many years of his contract still to go this would be a ridiculous blow.
It’s expected Neil Lennon will be handed the interim reigns until the summer with Damien Duff and John Kennedy flanking him.
