Celtic break Hearts as Lennon gets off to winning start

Former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers looks set to take his first Premier League job since leaving the Reds, being now in talks with Leicester City.

Rodgers' departure with just three months of the season to go is a huge blow to Celtic, who moved quickly to reappoint a club legend in Lennon. At the start of the following campaign, 16/17, he joined Celtic, where he has been since.

Dembele and Rodgers had some really good days together at Celtic but as Tuesday proves the lustre of those seems to have long since worn off. 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.

Leicester are on the hunt for a new manager after Claude Puel was sacked on Sunday following a 4-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace.

"I'm very privileged and honoured to be here as Leicester City manager and I'll give my life to make the supporters proud of their club".

The Swans won widespread plaudits for an impressive first season under Rodgers in the Premier League in 2011/12, where their stylish displays helped them to an 11th-placed finish.

March will be a hard month for new manager Neil Lennon, who needs to cope without the 25-year-old star in the league and the cup.

"I am delighted that John Kennedy and Damien Duff have agreed to be part of my team".

"Of course the game is won and lost at both ends and at the moment we're not putting away opportunities and so we have to make sure we're not conceding".

"When we appointed Brendan we knew we were bringing someone of the highest standard to Celtic".

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

Little over 24 hours had passed since Rodgers' exit for Leicester City by the time the match kicked off at Tynecastle, and Lennon conceded it had been "difficult" for the players.
