Why did Neil Lennon leave Hibs this year and Celtic in 2014?

Brendan Rodgers quit his role as manager of Celtic for the bright lights of Leicester or, more specifically, the Premier League.

Celtic became the first team in Scotland to go unbeaten during a 38-game league season during Rodgers' first campaign in charge, going on to make it a record 69-match undefeated streak.

The Scottish champions were on for a treble treble under Rodgers, an unparalleled achievement in domestic football.

Rodgers is no stranger to the Premier League, having steered a Luis Suarez-inspired Liverpool to within touching distance of the title in 2013-14 before getting sacked in October 2015. A trip to Hearts in the league is traditionally one of the most hard fixtures Celtic face each season whilst they will then face Hibs (Lennon's old club) in the quarter final of the Scottish Cup, a match followed by Aberdeen at home in a week's time. This is a very special club, very special support. The club comes first.

Ex-Celtic and now Lyon forward Dembele however, took to Twitter to share his thoughts on his former manager's decision to leaves the Bhoys midway through the season. This is a Club which has been such a huge part of my life already and it is an honour to be asked to return.

He will work with assistant manager John Kennedy and first-team coach Damien Duff until the end of the season. The atmosphere is the best in the world, I got lost in the goal.

Leicester caretaker boss Mike Stowell said Brendan Rodgers' rousing speech after victory over Brighton inspired his new squad. The game is always action packed and the recent developments will only further ensured we'll see another dramatic 90 minutes once again.

Sutton's immediate reaction is fairly similar to the sentiment throughout the Hoops support, with many feeling entirely let down by a man who spoke in glowing terms of the club and his love for it.

"I would personally like to thank Brendan for all he has given to the club".
