‘100% He Will Stay’ ‘Not A Chance’ – Celtic Fans On Social Media Back Rodgers To Resist Premier League Temptation

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is being linked with the vacant managerial post at Leicester City.

The Foxes sacked Claude Puel yesterday following a string of poor results, and bookmakers have installed the Hoops boss as the favourite to take over the English Premier League side.

Fans on Twitter are confident that Rodgers will stay, at least until the end of the season, as Celtic close in on a historic treble treble:

After the 4-1 win over Motherwell, Rodgers was asked about the Leicester job. The Northern Irishman said he was only focused on his current position at Celtic:

“My job is to concentrate on the football aspect, and that is with Celtic. I’ve been stood here for two and a half years and I’ve been asked similar questions, my message is always very, very clear, I’m very concentrated on the game.”

Reports suggest that the Foxes may offer £6m in compensation to hire the former Liverpool and Swansea manager. However, it appears that they don’t believe he will be prepared to leave midseason.

The English club may, in fact, appoint an interim boss with former Celtic boss Neil Lennon in the frame to take over at the King Power Stadium.
