Celtic fans hijack Leicester’s first training picture of Brendan Rodgers
BRENDAN RODGERS was labelled a “rat” and a “snake” by Celtic fans after Leicester City uploaded the first snap of their new gaffer in training.
Hoops supporters hijacked the Foxes’ Instagram post, which said: “Brendan Rodgers during his first training session as #lcfc’s first-team manager.”
Rodgers won seven trophies in Glasgow before returning to English Premier LeagueAFP or licensors
That prompted an avalanche of abuse – mainly through rat and snake emojis – towards Rodgers for quitting Parkhead for the King Power Stadium.
One fan wrote: “A man who runs away when things get a little bit tough, rat.”
Another added: “What a snake he is.”
Leicester and Celts diehards were soon trading insults as a social media war of words erupted.
One Foxes fan said: “He still left your p**h excuse of a club for us.”
A Hoops supporter hit back: “And what’s Leicester’s history? A lucky season winning the Premier League and nothing else.
“Celtic are the superior club.”
