Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has been confirmed as Leicester City's new manager.

It's after holding talks with the Premier League club after Claude Puel was sacked at the weekend.

Signing a contract to lead the Foxes until June 2022, Rodgers has said he is "privileged and honoured" to take on the role.

The news has caused disappointment from fans of his old team Celtic, who are currently eight points ahead of rivals Rangers in the league.

Since arriving at the club in summer 2016 he has helped the club win two Scottish Premierships, three Scottish League Cups and two Scottish Cups.

They have also reached the group stages of the Champions League in his first two seasons, but were knocked out in the third qualifying round this year.

Last week , they were knocked out of the Europa League at the last-32 stage for the second season running after losing to Valencia.

What Celtic fans say about Brendan Rogers leaving for Leicester

However, for many Celtic fans this is the news they have been dreading. They can't understand why he would want to leave at this stage of the season as they are on course to win the treble treble.

Neil Lennon has been named as the new interim manager at Celtic until the end of the season.
