Chris Sutton aims Celtic dig at Brendan Rodgers after he signs new Leicester deal

The former Hoops striker can’t seem to let the Foxes boss forget turning his back on Scotland.

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has this afternoon committed his future to the Foxes, according to the club’s official website.

Following the announcement former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has waded in with yet another dig towards the former Hoops boss.

This time he has made a sarcastic jibe, hinting that Rodgers might have signed a new deal, but it doesn’t necessarily mean he will see it out.

The ex-talisman seems unable to let it go that Rodgers left for the Premier League, despite declaring his love for Celtic on a regular basis.

Rodgers had three unbelievably successful seasons at Celtic Park. In February, however, he took the leap and opted to switch to Leicester.

His success has been unbelievable at the King Power Stadium.

After steadying the ship during 2018/19, he now has the Foxes second in the Premier League and the club well on course for a place in the Champions League next season.


Despite leaving Celtic in a great state, Sutton seems unwilling to let Rodgers forget that he walked out on the Scottish giants. He has taken straight to Twitter this afternoon:

Rodgers will take whatever Sutton says with a pinch of salt of course.

The man who claimed one England cap during his career is known to actively wind people up and he is on one again here.

Rodgers should have no qualms about turning his back on Celtic.


He is now managing in a top European league and is doing a superb job at a largely unfancied football club.

If Rodgers were to lead Leicester to a top-four finish it would be remarkable and would probably see Sutton royally lose his head!

The Foxes incumbent may have used Celtic as a stepping stone but ultimately he departed to further his career.
