Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson has told Sky Sports that he was disappointed when Brendan Rodgers left Celtic for Leicester City in February 2019.
Rodgers was appointed the Celtic manager in the summer of 2016 and was hugely successful at the Glasgow giants.
The former Liverpool boss won the Scottish Premiership title and the Scottish Cup twice each and the Scottish League Cup on three occasions.
The 47-year-old decided to leave the Hoops and take charge of Leicester in the Premier League in February 2019, with Neil Lennon subsequently appointed in his place.
Ahead of today’s match between Liverpool and Leicester at Anfield in the Premier League, Robertson has raved about Rodgers and has admitted that he was disappointed that he left Celtic.
The 26-year-old Scotland international left-back was at Celtic as a youth player.
Robertson told Sky Sports about Rodgers: “A very good manager. I was obviously gutted when he left Celtic, but he has gone on to do very good things.”
Celtic under Neil Lennon
Lennon is now in his second managerial spell at Celtic, and although he has done well overall, things could be better.
Although the Hoops won the Scottish Premiership title in 2019-20, the Scottish Cup in 2018-19 and the Scottish League Cup in 2019-20 under Lennon, the team have failed to play in the Champions League and could fail to progress to the knockout rounds of the Europa League this season.
