Former Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers was a surprise guest at Sunday’s Scottish Cup. The Irishman left his role as manager of Leicester City in April of this year and took in the game between the Glasgow rivals.
Ange Postecoglou’s side were 1-0 winners, thanks to a Jota header, setting up a Cup Final on June 3rd against Inverness CT. The Highlanders stand in the way of the Australian joining the ranks of Jock Stein, Martin O’Neill, Rodgers and Neil Lennon as the only managers to win Trebles at the club.
Rodgers enjoyed success of his own at Hampden against Rangers, winning three Semi Finals against the Ibrox club 1-0, 2-0 and 4-0. He was pictured in the Celtic Hospitality with Celtic fan and entrepreneur Willie Haughey.
The Celtic fan growing up presided over an Invincible Treble in his first season, a 69-game unbeaten run as he won seven out of the seven trophies available to him. The departure left a bitter taste in the mouths of everyone involved but his time at Celtic should be fondly remembered, especially as we are enjoying a fine spell with Ange as our leader.
