Brendan Rodgers responds to Leicester links

Celtic coach Brendan Rodgers has hosed down speculation linking him to a potential move to Premier League side Leicester.

Reports emerged this week that the Foxes are lining up Rodgers to replace Claude Puel, but that’s news to the man himself.

“Someone mentioned it to me yesterday,” Rodgers said.

“It is the time of the year where you get players and managers get linked with clubs and whatnot. For me, my only concentration is here at Celtic.

“Leicester as we have seen over the last few years, an incredible journey that they have been on as a club and obviously the unfortunate circumstances that they had earlier this season.

“It is a fantastic club but for me at this moment in time my concentration is purely on Celtic and looking forward to the second part of this season.”
