Brendan Rodgers continued to patronise the Celtic support after guiding Leicester to a 3-1 win over Fulham thanks to two goals in the last 15 minutes from Jamie Vardy.
Just interviewed Brendan Rodgers for @BBCMOTD … first question he asked me before we began: “What was the Celtic score?”.

Leicester Unloyal himself was probably hoping Celtic got a doing.
Come back Maurice Johnston all is forgiven (actually it’s not).

After almost three years of hearing that he was living the dream everything that the former Celtic boss has to say will be treated with contempt by hoops supporters.
A fortnight ago Rodgers was watching Claude Puel’s final match in charge of Leicester as he prepared for Celtic’s SPFL clash with Motherwell the following day.
Only a very select group of people know the exact chronological chain of events but after the win over Motherwell and training on Monday Rodgers upped sticks and headed 300 miles south with barely a thought or word for his ‘friends for life’ as he described the Celtic players in his farewell statement.
Within the space of 48 hours Rodgers had destroyed what could have been a glorious legacy for reasons that are unlikely to ever surface.
Having failed to announce his decision to the players that he had worked closely with over 20 months and seven trophies any future sentiments from the ex-Celtic boss will be looked at in an entirely new light.
