Report discloses how Celtic feel about Leicester's Brendan Rodgers interest

Celtic fans are seen prior to the UEFA Champions League Qualifying Play-Offs Round First Leg match between Celtic FC and FK Astana at Celtic Park on August 16, 2017 in Glasgow, United...

Reports had suggested that Leicester City had eyed Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers as Claude Puel's replacement

Brendan Rodgers, manager of Celtic looks on ahead of the Scottish Cup Final between Motherwell and Celtic at Hampden Park on May 19, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

It will take a big offer to lure Brendan Rodgers away from Celtic.

The Northern Irish manager is in the job of his dreams right now with Celtic, his boyhood club, winning the domestic treble for an unprecedented second time in a row last season.

And Rodgers, who has stated a desire to stay in Scotland for the foreseeable future, would surely only be tempted to give up his role at Parkhead should he receive an offer he simply cannot refuse.

Celtic's head coach Brendan Rodgers talks during a press conference in Brussels on September 26, 2017 on the eve of the Champions League group B) football match against RSC Anderlecht.

Leicester City, it seems, are just not big enough.

The Scottish Sun stated on Sunday that Rodgers has emerged as a target for the Foxes, who are still unsure about Claude Puel’s future after an unconvincing end of the 2017/18 season which left fans and reportedly players divided about his methods.

And the report stated that Leicester see Rodgers, who very nearly won the Premier League with Liverpool in 2014, as the man capable of turning them back into a top six side.

But, according to the Evening Times, the Celtic chiefs are far from worried. It is understood that they believe Rodgers is very happy in Glasgow and therefore there is no fear that he would be tempted by a move to Leicester with three years remaining on his contract.

Rodgers will be hoping to lead Celtic to an eighth league title in a row next season; but progress on the European stage remains his biggest challenge yet and one he will want to face head-on.
