BRENDAN RODGERS has revealed he will always support Celtic – despite walking out on the Parkhead outfit in February.

The Irishman quit at a crucial stage of the season, two days before a Premiership match against Hearts at Tynecastle followed by a Scottish Cup quarter-final against Hibs at Easter Road.

Rodgers left for mid-table Leicester City after they had sacked manager Claude Puel.

Neil Lennon answered the Celtic SOS and helped them over the line in the title race as the champions picked up their eighth successive crown with a 3-0 win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Saturday.

The comeback gaffer, who is working in a caretaker capacity, also has the Scottish Cup Final against Hearts at Hampden on May 25 to look forward to.

Rodgers. though, insisted “with my heart, I’d always be” at Celtic.

The former Liverpool and Swansea gaffer, speaking on You Tube, said: “The times that we had there were amazing.

“With my heart, I would always be there because – no matter where I have been in my life – I always look for the Celtic result and that’s in you from when you are young.

“But there comes a time in your life that maybe the professional challenge means you have to look elsewhere.

“But that doesn’t change who I support. I will always support Celtic.”

Rodgers spent two-and-a-half years at Parkhead and won the seven domestic trophies that were up for grabs during his reign in the east end of Glasgow.
