Enjoy Rodgers I hope it makes you happy Dear lord, what a sad little life, Leicester. You ruined my day completely so you could have him and I hope now you can spend it on lessons in grace and decorum because you have all the grace of a reversing dump truck without any tyres on pic.twitter.com/a3MRzy4ELB

No offence to the Scottish league but it just goes to show how irrelevant it is when Brendan Rodgers, who could win the SPL for the 3rd time in a row leaves in the middle of the season, for Leicester City.

The return of Neil Lennon should calm things down.

You would win the league if I was your manager so I don’t see why you’re arsed.

I'm delighted to take over at Leicester City today. I'm looking forward to working with fine talents such as Riyad Mahrez and N'Golo Kante, although I haven't bumped into them yet. Maybe they are just busy
