Brendan Rodgers left Celtic for Leicester City last season.

Phil Babb said on The Debate show on Sky Sports Premier League (10:55pm, Wednesday, October 9, 2019) that Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has proved Celtic fans wrong.

The former Liverpool central defender believes that many Celtic fans wondered why Rodgers would leave the Hoops for Leicester last season.

The Hoops won the domestic treble for two successive seasons under the former Liverpool manager, who guided the Hoops to Scottish League Cup in 2018-19 before leaving for Leicester in the Premier League in February 2019.

Babb said on The Debate show on Sky Sports Premier League (10:55pm, Wednesday, October 9, 2019): “I think a lot of people questioned, certainly in Scotland, why Brendan would come down and leave or pass the treble treble over to Neil Lennon, but he could see the vision, he could see that young squad.”

Lure of the Premier League

Celtic are a massive club, but Rodgers – who earns £5 million per year as salary at Leicester, according to The Telegraph – had done all he could at Celtic Park, and it must have been very hard for him to ignore Leicester when the Foxes came calling.

The Foxes are an established club in the Premier League, and have a very promising and young squad who can only get better.

Leicester are doing well at the moment, and the Foxes are challenging for a spot in the top four of the Premier League.
