Celtic fans weren’t happy with what Brendan Rodgers had to say prior to Saturday’s Scottish Cup Final, after he gave an interview to broadcaster Premier Sports.
The channel aired a half hour programme quizzing the former Hoops boss on his exit from the club and the reaction it has garnered from supporters.
He talked in the usual glowing terms about his former side, stating one day he would like to go back and manage the club.
It didn’t exactly provoke a friendly reaction from Hoops supporters though, many of whom have still not forgiven the Leicester boss for the manner in which he walked out of Celtic Park to move to the English Premier League.
It’ll likely be a long time, if ever, before he is accepted by the majority of the Celtic support again given the betrayal they feel occurred when he left mid-season with almost no notice.
These fans have taken to Twitter this weekend to share their thoughts on his latest comments…
His ego forced him to do this interview. His desire to be liked outweighs any reality that exists around him !

Get him so far away fae me.

I really liked him and believed in him, at the time I thought Moussa was derogatory in calling his word out so obviously backed the brodge. I still feel he could have held Leicester out till the agreed time if they wanted him. He’s a talent but he abandoned Celtic, that’s a fact.

You’re in the past now Brendan. You had the chance to be a legend. Lennon will take that status by getting us to ten in a row and beyond.

You could have been a legend! You sold that status for money ?. We won’t forget that you walked out on us.

He’s not a bad coach but he is so full of himself it sickens me.

Why would he agree to an interview and say these things, is he on an ego trip? Does he believe what he’s saying? Does he regret how he left? Do we really care?
