There’s clearly no love lost between the Celtic faithful and former manager Brendan Rodgers as seen by the reaction below.
The Leicester City boss sent a message of congratulations to his old club following the Hoops clinching their ninth straight Scottish Premiership title this week.
Rodgers said: “Celtic have been terrific, especially since the turn of the year. They’ve been the best team, consistently, and all the players, staff and people at the club have got their reward.”
But supporters at Celtic Park have been left reeling by his remarks as some are still hurt by his departure in February 2019.
Rodgers won two of those nine championships and was on course for three before he left with the club eight points clear at the top of the table.
He’s been labelled both a snake and rat despite being one of the most successful managers the club have ever had.
Here’s how fans have been responding to his comments on Twitter…

I tortured him for over a year.
He’s a Rat
But is it time to let it go? I still don’t know.
Concentrate fully on 10.

The snake done a good job, but do us all a favour and never mention his name again. The minute he walked out on us mid season, he relinquished all Celticfc rights.

9 in a row is completely ruined now. The achievement means nothing.
