Brendan Rodgers frustrated to lose first game as Leicester City boss

07 March 2019

The manager's two-and-a-half year tenure with Celtic ended last week when he opted to join the Foxes to replace Claude Puel.

Next up for Celtic is a home fixture against Aberdeen, as they look to extend their lead over Rangers at the top of the table.

"That happened to be Daniel and they have performed really well this season". You always have to be prepared for that moment as a club. The Celtic defender has a long way to go on his contract and unlike Brendan, young Kieran is Celtic through and through.

"I took them up, we couldn't stay up and I was never going to be afforded the time if I couldn't bring them back up that season".

"I knew, coming away, the improvements made will hopefully allow that success to continue". It's an incredible club that I've supported all my life.

Supporters were unsure what the departure would do to their league and Scottish Cup campaigns, but Oliver Burke has claimed that he felt no disappointment in Rodgers' exit.

Akira Akbar is instantly endearing as Maria's whip-smart daughter Monica. That ends up being one of the movie's most fun moments.

"The expectancy is to challenge for a European place and a trophy", he said.

After the break, it was more of the same and Wilfred Ndidi's 74th-minute cross, which clipped the crossbar, was as close as the Foxes had come to a goal. It is something that will get better as we work together.

McManus also indicated Rodgers will be able to operate with more backing in the transfer market at Leicester.

"He has been absolutely brilliant, when you think of the trauma and all the emotion which surrounds him, I have been absolutely astonished with his own stability", Rodgers added. "But I felt it was the time to move on to my next challenge". "For the first time he has made decisions without his father and he has been so courageous and fearless".

Watford - beaten 5-0 at Liverpool last week - collected their third Premier League win in four games, while Leicester will hope Rodgers can get off the mark this weekend.
