Celtic: Fans loved seeing Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester knocked out of Carabao Cup - Celtic

Rodgers’ Leicester side exited the competition after a 2-1 defeat at Aston Villa, with the home side scoring the winning goal in stoppage time to prevent the Northern Ireland native from adding England’s League Cup to the Scottish equivalent that he won three times during his stint in Glasgow.

The 47-year-old won seven domestic trophies in less than three years at Celtic but left abruptly for Leicester last February after a vacancy arose at the King Power Stadium. In the Hoops’ first match following his departure from the Scottish champions, some fans expressed their unhappiness with Rodgers by displaying a banner reading: “You traded immortality for mediocrity, never a Celt, always a fraud” (as per Football Scotland).

Since Rodgers swapped Glasgow for Leicester, his successor Neil Lennon completed Celtic’s ‘treble treble’ and retained the Betfred Cup, as well as topping their Europa League group this season. After Sutton tweeted that there is a “fair chance Brendan wished he stayed at Celtic”, these Hoops fans revelled in their ex-manager’s Carabao Cup woes:
