Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers gives response to Leicester speculation

Brendan Rodgers has responded to the speculation that he is the favourite to replace the recently sacked Claude Puel at Leicester City. 

The Frenchman was relieved of his duties by the Premier League club following the 4-1 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace at the weekend, and the Celtic manager has been installed as the favourite to replace him.

Rodgers has quickly poured cold water over the speculation though, saying before his side’s 4-1 win over Motherwell on Sunday that he is fully focused on managing the Hoops for the time being.

“My job is to concentrate on the football aspect, and that is with Celtic,” Rodgers told BBC Scotland.

“I’ve been stood here for two and a half years and I’ve been asked similar questions, my message is always very, very clear, I’m very concentrated on the game.

“We’re in really good form and my concentration is fully on getting the three points [against Motherwell].”

Rodgers is still the prohibitive favourite to take the Leicester City job however, with David Wagner, Michael Appleton and Neil Lennon also in the running, while Nigel Pearson is an outside bet to lead the Foxes for a third time.
