Strange double standards going about.

Like if a manager uses us as a stepping stone to England it's a problem.

Yet at the same time people are happy for us to be a selling club. In which players sign with the sole purpose of getting sold down south or abroad.

In that case van dijk is Judas. Armstrong, forster, wanyama, Dembele etc are all Judas? Why didn't they all stay for 10 in a row?

That's what football is now half the players who play for us don't give one monkeys about us.

If you want a Celtic manager and commited players for long term then we would have 11 Scottish players with the odd guy like Izzy who take to the club.

Harsh reality of modern football.

The main difference being that those players never sold the fans and club a lie. They also left in transfer windows allowing us to get replacements. They didn’t tell us it was their dream job, we expected them all to leave.

Players are much more easily replaceable, a manager is responsible for the whole team not just one position on the park and he not only left us at a crucial stage in the season but tried to leave us without a single member of coaching staff.

Surely you can see the difference.
Other managers have managed to see out the season in much worse situations, Rodgers recent comments trying to imply the board weren’t backing him was him obviously planning his exit thinking he could escape without blame.

Very different situations.

Yip, agreed.
Some fans expect all players to be as passionate about the team as they are. It doesn't happen often. Players and managers are paid to be involved, fans pay to be involved. Massive difference.
I can accept Rodgers desire to move on and challenge himself but I'm very disappointed in how fast he did it. HH.

It's the timing he basically left us in the lurch at a very important part of the season the business end and was for taking our whole backroom team and left us with no management.

Moving on elsewhere isn't really a problem for me. But leaving a side when you've got a title to win? I'm lost for words still.

There’s absolutely no doubt about it, it was the timing of Rodgers departure that was the issue. An 8 point lead with 11 games left it was by no means a fore gone conclusion and a tough Scottish Cup QF ahead the timing was disgraceful. If he’d decided to call it a day at the end of the season I’m sure the majority of us fans would have thanked him for all he achieved with us and wished him well. But I have to admit I agree with the GB banner. He deserted us at the most crucial point in the season. I’m grateful the we have Lenny at the helm now for the rest of the season.

Tesla is tolling . No Celtic supporter could condone a manager leaving with yet another SPL to be won with only 11 games left .
As far as selling club is concerned, I think every club in these islands is a selling club, in so far if a bigger club comes in for a star player, any club will sell.

Tesla its not the fact he left, its the fact that he has been lying to the fans for almost 3 years. more and more stories that his little anecdotes are all bullsh*t - Danny McGrain etc
For someone who is so clever if he had stayed to the end of the season and left because the board didn't match his ambitions then the board would have copped the flack, instead he has been found out for what he is, only interested in himself.
As stated above, GB banner said it all for me and probably 99% of fans. the king is dead, long live King LENNY. he is now forgotten!

LMAO yeah Rodgers full of integrity. If we had bet Valencia he would of still been here untill we got knocked out.

Fact of matter is he was willing to take our whole backroom team at a crucial point in league and right before Hearts away game. Nothing but a rat in my eyes.

Also I am convinced us getting benkovic on loan was tied into Rodgers already agreeing to take Leicester job back in September.

Let's move on. He's gone and in the past. Hope Lennon does well and is offered job permanently. We need stability.
