The former Celtic footballer and now TV pundit has spoken how he feels when Brendan Rodgers decided to leave the Scottish Premier League club.
Before leaving for Leicester City, there were many rumours that Brendan Rodgers was quitting Scottish Premier League club Celtic to join the Premier League in England.
But many came out in his defense, saying it was not true, and that he was loyal to his colors.
One of these defenders was former Celtic striker John Hartson, who now works on television, and who would come out publicly to defend Rodgers… Until the manager left the club and joined Leicester City.
“I cover Leicester a lot in my work for television and I have to say that I am looking forward to bumping into Brendan Rodgers,” Hartson told The Scotzine.
“I am reluctant to go over all of this much more because I think Neil Lennon deserves the chance to get on and get to work without it always hanging over him, but Brendan let a lot of people down.”
“And I feel that I am one of them. He sucked me in. He sucked a lot of people in. He made a fool of me,” he commented.
“Here I am telling every man and his dog that Brendan is loving his life in Glasgow, that he is loving Celtic and he wants to stay for 10. I know Brendan. I got to know him years ago at Swansea, so it’s not just a new relationship for me.”
“But he had the wool over my eyes. So, I am looking forward to bumping into him at Leicester. I won’t say publicly what I plan on saying to him, but you can be sure that I will get my point across,” he added.
“And I totally get why the Celtic fans are so angry. They have every right to be. Yes, he was a brilliant manager for the club. He had the team playing some fabulous football and there are some memories to be cherished from his 32-month reign at the club.”
