Leicester City pay Celtic £6m for Brendan Rodgers

Brendan-Rogers

Leicester City have appointed Brendan Rodgers as their manager after he decided to turn his back on Celtic despite the Scottish club being on the brink of a third consecutive treble.

Celtic “very reluctantly” granted Rodgers permission to speak to Leicester yesterday morning and he signed a three-year contract, before watching his new team beat Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester’s Thai owners did not balk at a £6 million compensation package for Celtic and had been willing to wait until the summer for the Northern Irish manager. However, Rodgers, 46, was willing to move back to England immediately and take over at a club that are 11th in the table after a poor run under Claude Puel.
