Brendan Rodgers is set to join Leicester City after Celtic gave permission for him to discuss their managerial vacancy, according to BBC Sport.
Rodgers is in his third season in charge of the Hoops and was on course to claim an unprecedented triple treble.
Now it seems that he is set to make the switch back to the Premier League as Claude Puel’s successor.
It is thought, according to the report, that Rodgers will take charge immediately and no plans will be in place for him to see the season out at Celtic Park.
Sutton not amused
Chris Sutton netted 63 goals for the club in six years and he has taken to Twitter to vent his frustration, saying:
Dream job and to leave now… it stinks⚽️ https://t.co/iE2nTyURPu

Back in April, Rodgers told The Times that he was living the dream managing the Hoops and that he wanted to create a legacy a the club.
Having stayed loyal to the Scottish giants, Sutton resonates as a supporter of the club and perhaps he has a point.
The Premier League is clearly better than the Scottish Premiership.
It would appear that Rodgers’ ultimate desire was to return as soon as possible.
Celtic fans appear to back Sutton on this one though and have taken to Twitter to give him their seal of approval.

Born into Celtic.Leaves when on the cusp of Celtic immortality. Legacy it tatters.

Well said Chris… The player’s have to react now. Which will be difficult. SB is massive for us now. Club is bigger than any manger or players. We go on. Treble to win.

Totally agree with everything that you have stated Chris. It’s all about the timing for me as well.

Never seen this coming this season anyway, shocking timing as @chris_sutton73 says, but managers come and go, we didn’t think there would be life after O’Neil and there was, so it’s a sad day but we are Glasgow Celtic and this club goes on!!!

Brendan Rodgers says a lot Chris but not all Celtic fans believed it
Brendan Rodgers only cares about Brendan Rodgers
It’s funny he was never seen at Celtic Park or ever heard talk about Celtic until he took his “dream job” at the club “he always supported”#egomaniac
