Brendan Rodgers confirmed as new Leicester manager, Neil Lennon back at Celtic

Celtic fans are delighted by Neil Lennon's impending return to the club

And Celtic, who are set to appoint former manager Neil Lennon as interim boss, are now on course for a third successive domestic treble, sitting eight points clear of second-placed Rangers in the league with 11 games to go.

Rodgers departed Anfield in 2015, after a little over three years in charge.

The 46-year-old from Carnlough in Co Antrim leaves Celtic after nearly three years to replace Claude Puel, who was sacked on Sunday. "I am returning to one of the biggest and best clubs in world football and I can't wait to get started".

"Coming into the club at this point of the season, it's never normally ideal, but it gives me the chance to observe and analyse the players over this last period of games", he said.

The verve and swagger returned with a fine opening goal from Demarai Gray to set Leicester on the way towards a first victory since Boxing Day at the King Power Stadium, in front of their new manager.

"There was a number of reasons why I joined Leicester", he said. This is an opportunity he wished to pursue and that is something we have to respect.

Moussa Dembele has given an "interesting" reaction to Leicester City appointing Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers spent four full seasons with the Merseyside outfit before he was relieved of his duties, and went on to seek pastures new north of the border, joining Celtic in the summer of 2016.

Celtic are now eight points clear of Rangers at the Scottish Premiership summit.

The SPL crown was retained in 2012-13, while Lennon also oversaw another Scottish Cup win and an impressive Champions League campaign which ended in the last 16 against Juventus.

He succeeded Paulo Sousa in the role as he built a side whose eye-catching playing style helped guide them to Premier League promotion in 2011 with a 4-2 win over former team Reading in the Championship Play-Off Final at Wembley.

However, not even the lure of a third treble or breaking the Scottish record by winning 10 league titles in a row was enough for Rodgers to reject the riches and prestige of a return to the Premier League.
