Celtic fans send message to Brendan Rodgers with banner at Hearts match

Rodgers left Celtic for Leicester and the boys in Green are not impressed.

Brendan Rodgers quit his role as manager of Celtic for the bright lights of Leicester or, more specifically, the Premier League.

The Scottish champions were on for a treble-treble under Rodgers, an unparalleled achievement in domestic football.

But, after two and a half years at Celtic Park dicking anyone and everyone in his way, the manager has headed for pastures English.

Understandably the green Glasgow faithful have something to say about that as their team travelled to play Hearts for a midweek Scottish Premiership fixture.

Fans unfurled a banner reading: "You traded immortality for mediocrity. Never a Celt. Always a fraud."

Leicester beat Brighton 2-1 this week with Rodgers in the stands, meanwhile Neil Lennon has taken over as caretaker in Glasgow until the end of the season.

He told Celtic TV: "There's a chasm to fill with Brendan leaving. He's done a remarkable job, but I'm here for the club.

“The club comes first as do the players. I want to bring as much success during my time here as I possibly can.

"All I want to do is carry that on - it's not broken and I'm not coming in and looking to revolutionise anything."

Lennon won the Scottish Premiership three times during his last four-year spell at Celtic.
