A die-hard Celtic fan who lives and works in Leicester is gutted at the departure of manager Brendan Rodgers but believes the Foxes have made a shrewd appointment.

Rodgers was announced as the new manager of Leicester City yesterday (TUESFEB26), leaving Celtic after two and a half years.

Celtic supporter Chris Johnston said: “I’m absolutely gutted, he’s done great things. He’s fantastic.”

Chris meets frequently with other Celtic supporters to watch televised matches at Duffy’s in Leicester and said that some may see Rodgers as a traitor but for him that is not the case.

“A lot of supporters feel like he’s a traitor, I don’t think that personally but it does leave a bad taste when the treble-treble was still on,” said Chris.

Despite being disappointed, he admitted that Rodgers couldn’t compete on the limited budget that the Scottish champions had.

“Leicester have bagged themselves a great coach and the fact is that Rodgers can’t compete at the highest level with the limited budget Celtic have.”
