Rogers Pencilled For Leicester :One time Liverpool boss now Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers may be confirmed as Leicester City’s new manager after holding talks with the Premier League club.
Former Liverpool boss Rodgers is in the Midlands after discussions on Monday night and a deal to replace the sacked Claude Puel is believed to be close.
Celtic are eight points clear of nearest rivals Rangers in the league as they chase an eighth successive title.
Rodgers has won every domestic trophy he has contested – two Scottish Premierships, three Scottish League Cups and two Scottish Cups – since arriving at Parkhead in the summer of 2016.
They reached the group stages of the Champions League in his first two seasons, but were knocked out in the third qualifying round by AEK Athens.
Last week, they bowed out of the Europa League at the last-32 stage for the second successive season, losing to Valencia.
Puel was dismissed after 16 months in charge following Saturday’s 4-1 loss to Crystal Palace.
The 57-year-old Frenchman left the club 12th in the Premier League having lost five of their past six league games.
Rodgers has rebuilt a reputation in Scotland after his failure at Liverpool and is certainly not short of personality or charisma.
The 46-year-old also plays attractive, attacking football and shares in Puel’s penchant for promoting young talent.
