Loads of Celtic fans have been reacting to a stunning report on the departure of Brendan Rodgers, as the compensation fee paid to the Bhoys has been revealed.
Celtic fans were understandably fuming when Rodgers departed mid-season, leaving the club to join Premier League outfit Leicester City.
Of course, the English top flight is the pinnacle of club football to many, but it was the timing of the Foxes boss’ departure that really infuriated fans.
Their frustrations may be eased somewhat now though, as a report from The Telegraph has revealed that the Hoops received a £9m fee for Rodgers and his backroom staff.
To put that in perspective, the report claims Everton paid just £4m to Watford to bring Marco Silva to Goodison Park.
Things haven’t been going too badly since Rodgers’ departure either, as even despite a disappointing draw with Aberdeen, Neil Lennon’s side need just five points from their final four games to guarantee an eighth consecutive title.
Fans have got plenty to say about the compensation fee too, with some suggesting they use it to sign Filip Benkovic while others fear the prospect of the club refusing to reinvest the cash into the squad.
Either way, you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Should have just swapped him for benkovic

The irony is that our ex-manager claimed a transfer fee greater than the ‘best striker in Scotland’ will achieve, despite the Scottish media narrative.

Use this to make Benkovic move permanent and we still have enough to make Burke move permanent also
