Brendan Rodgers is leaving Celtic Neil Lennon will replace him

Leicester ended a winless run stretching back to January 1 by beating Brighton 2-1 in the Premier League on Tuesday, its players perhaps motivated by impressing their new coach following his arrival from Scottish club Celtic.

Rodgers guided Celtic to two Scottish Premiership titles as part of seven domestic trophies during his time in Scotland, with the club now eight points clear at the top of the table.

'I'll keep the current style, and I don't think it's too different to what I do. Everybody's talking about 10 [titles in a row], I just want to get to eight.

Speaking at his first press conference today Lennon said: "It's a no-brainer, most important thing is the club".

However, any nerves at returning to such an unfavourable scene will sure to have been alleviated by the warm welcome he received from Celtic fans, as they blared out "There's only one Neil Lennon". "But we have a game on Saturday and there is still something possible", said Siewert, with the Terriers still 11 points off safety. "I actually got a bit choked up I must admit", Stewart told United Kingdom radio station TalkSport.

"We know there's going to be some changes in the summer".

Lennon says he has mellowed since his first spell in charge at Parkhead.

"Initially when you spoke to them, there was a bit of shock but by the time they got their heads round, they got on the training pitch, full focus was on the game [against Hearts]".

"It's not about me coming back, it's not about Brendan leaving, it's about Celtic winning the league and hopefully winning another cup as well".

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

But though he says his energy and will-to-win remain the same, he is a calmer person now than he was almost a decade ago when he took over Celtic for the first time. Players are out of contract, there's loan players here who will go back to their clubs. I'm not even thinking about that, the club comes first.
