What Brendan Rodgers Did When He Left Celtic Will Leave Fans FUMING

Celtic are currently eight-points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership as they sit on the brink of their eighth consecutive league title.

Despite that, Rodgers decided that his time was up at Celtic Park and left the club after almost three years as boss.

Former Celtic player and current coach John Kennedy has spoken out on what Rodgers did when he left the club, and revealed that the Northern Irishman FAILED to speak to the players.

“Did Brendan speak with the players? No,” Kennedy told the Daily Record.

“He left about Monday lunchtime.

“He came out to training as normal and, to be fair, when he left the building, nothing was done or decided.

“He was just going at that moment in time to have chats, so the players weren’t aware of it as news broke through.

“The first I spoke with him about this was Monday morning.

“He said he was probably going to speak with Leicester and to get ready to take the team.”

Although the news was yet to be confirmed when Rodgers left the training ground, talks were reportedly ongoing after Claude Puel was dismissed last Sunday.

Kennedy, who played for Celtic between 1999 and 2009, was promoted to assistant manager when Neil Lennon was named caretaker boss earlier in the week, and the 35-year-old has backed the Lennon to be a success.

He said: ”Neil is very motivation-based. That’s a good skill to have.

“Neil’s energy is second to none. He has a different skillset to Brendan but, ultimately, he has been successful here before.

“A large chunk of players in the squad know him already.

“It’s a short period now until the end of the season but I know what he’s like and he’s a born winner.”

Lennon won the first game of his second spell in charge against Hearts on Wednesday, with a trip to his former club Hibernian in the Scottish Cup up next.
