It appears that Neil Lennon is set to return as Celtic manager following the impending departure of Brendan Rodgers to Leicester City and it looks like the former Northern Ireland player will have a few familiar faces alongside him in the dugout.
Gerrard, now a rival of Rodgers, worked with the 46-year-old at Liverpool and rates him highly, meaning the interest from the Foxes comes as no surprise.
Rodgers spent four full seasons with the Merseyside outfit before he was relieved of his duties, and went on to seek pastures new north of the border, joining Celtic in the summer of 2016.
The Northern Irishman is now in the Midlands city finalising his deal with the club after telling the Celtic board and players of his desire to leave on Monday. Celtic is a club that's a huge club worldwide, a renowned club, and I loved working with the players there.
"We were on a journey of great success over these last years but when the opportunity came to talk to Leicester and I was able to analyse it, it allowed me to think that I'd probably achieved and taken the club maybe at Celtic as far as I could at this moment".Читайте также: Rotten Tomatoes removing audience ratings and comments during films' pre-release period
Celtic confirmed Lennon would be in charge for Wednesday's trip to Gorgie, with new assistant manager John Kennedy and first-team coach Damien Duff by his side.
Rodgers won seven trophies during his time with Celtic, including successive Scottish Premiership titles in 2017 and 2018. Of course, the big attraction for me is working with the players.
'I'm delighted with the character because we didn't start well. "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 are now eight points clear of Rangers at the Scottish Premiership summit.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
