Last week, Rodgers was expected to be in charge of the Hoops for their clash with Hearts.

But after Leicester sacked Claude Puel, the Celtic boss quickly jumped at the chance to return to the Premier League.

Many were shocked at the timing of Rodgers’ Parkhead departure, considering Celtic are on the verge of another treble.

But the new Leicester boss will apparently not be remembered fondly for his time in Scotland.

Ahead of their game with Hearts tonight, Celtic fans held up a banner that read: “You traded immortality for mediocrity: Never a Celt, always a fraud.”

Former Celtic boss Neil Lennon has taken over first-team duties, while Rodgers was in the stands to watch Leicester beat Brighton last night.

“I loved working with the players there and we were on a journey of great success over the last three years,” he said earlier this week.

“But, when the opportunity came to talk to Leicester and I was able to analyse it, it allowed me to probably think that I had achieved and taken the club as far as I could at this moment.”

Rodgers has also taken assistant manager Chris Davies, first-team coach Kolo Toure and fitness coach Glen Driscoll to the King Power Stadium.

And the former Liverpool boss admits he is excited to get started.

“The big attraction for me is working with the players,” he added.

“It’s a young squad, a very dynamic squad that’s got great potential and you’ve got some players with real experience too.”

Celtic took the lead away at Hearts tonight in the 36th minute – James Forrest got the first goal of Neil Lennon’s second reign at the club.
