BRENDAN RODGERS sensationally walked away from Celtic two thirds of the way through the season to join up with Leicester City football club.

It was a job Brendan said he couldn’t turn down, nor wait until the end of the season to take up the role. It was a shock to the whole Celtic support who had been regaled by Brendan on many occasions on how much he loved the club.

There’s nuance and stuff that will come out with the passage of time why Brendan thought he had taken Celtic as far as he could go, but his overriding feeling was he needed to be back in the EPL.

The Irishman got his wish and went about building a good Leicester side. Under Rodgers, Leicester have been the nearly men, so close to getting the former EPL champions into the Champions League but falling at the final hurdle two seasons running.

The lack of investment by Leicester over two years has saw the clubs go backwards to the extent they are now rooted to the bottom of the EPL table with no signs of recovery as of yet.

Leicester went to London on Saturday evening and were beaten by Spurs after a spirited first half display. The game finished 6-2 and Leicester looked out on their feet.

Brendan Rodgers job looks very precarious as we sit here this evening. Is the former invincible treble manager set to get his marching orders?

Spurs fans were chanting ‘You’re getting sacked in the morning’ by the end of the game. Once upon a time, Brendan was being linked with the Spurs job, now it’s difficult to see where Brendan goes from here.

He can deliver an argument that he wasn’t backed to build an EPL side in the end.

  1. St Brendan, is out on his ar5e, as he cannot deliver European football this year on a budget. His employers have not abandoned him, nor the team. If he gets relieved of his breadwinner status, plenty of teams in the Ecl, that would welcome him as coach, a little below his status you say?

    But that’s what the bog papers said about his move to Glasgow.

    Brendan goes where the money is, not his fault, that the money men suits, cannot back him in coin. Like they did at Liverpool.

    Yes, and they also (like Brendan) have moved on, without much fuss.

  2. Dont feel too sorry for Brendan Rodgers he will get, as I understand it a £10,000,000 goodbye if he is sacked.

    He and his team of scouts and advisers have bought players who have not performed under him, many brilliant internationals. Moved on some good academy players showing promise.

    He has de-motivated the team with his comments of signing 6 new players in March this year.

    It is what it is poor management. In fact 1 point is catastrophic management and a crisis of confidence in the dressing room.

    A £10,000,000 payday when your sacked, Allegedly? Hmmm…

  3. Where the money is my ass. £3 million for John mcGinn and Lawwell wouldn’t cough up (Prick). After 6 weeks he’s at Aston Villa worth 50 to 70 million quid. We’d have done 10 in a row. Some of you Brendan haters need to wise up. Good luck Brendan.

  4. As I said where the money is. Celtics suits didn’t want to spend (still don’t, unless they can move players on for a massive profit)

    But that’s football.

  5. Brendan Rodgers,your time is up on your dream Job what a dream you have had but you went for it more Money it is a Job you wanted as the £ signs where burning a big whole in your pockets you just did not see what you had at Celtic and you walked away but Celtic will always be in football will you get another chance at any big club now…
