According to The Sun, Leicester are lining up Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers to replace Claude Puel if Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha decides to sack the Frenchman after the upcoming Wolves clash.
Despite guiding the Foxes to safety last season, the former Southampton boss is far from a hit with the fans, who seem to feel that the brand of football he has got the team playing is far too negative – three defensive midfielders were deployed in the ill-fated Southampton game.
Rodgers is surely keen to try his luck at the Premier League after two-and-a-half years at the Parkhead helm and is apparently top of the list to succeed Puel.
With Rangers and Kilmarnock hot on their heels, the Hoops are surely dreading the 45-year-old’s departure and will need to get the right man in if they are to retain the SPFL title – but who should that be?
Steve Clarke looks most likely; David Wagner has just been sacked by Huddersfield; Leicester’s own Puel would of course be available; Neil Lennon would be a good option; but the best choice would surely be Preston boss Alex Neil – the former Norwich boss impressed at Carrow Road, has done well on a shoestring budget at Deepdale, is only 37 and therefore has a bright future ahead of him.
What do you think, Bhoys and Ghirls? Who would you back to take over from Rodgers? Let us know by voting in the poll below…
