Rodgers left Celtic on a whirlwind Tuesday and agreed a three-year deal to take over from Claude Puel at the King Power Stadium, leaving the Hoops hot-seat free for Lennon to return for a second stint as the Glasgow club’s manager.
However, it turns out things could have turned out very differently, with Lennon admitting he held informal talks with the Leicester hierarchy earlier this week.
Speaking via the Sun, the former Hibs and Bolton coach revealed: “The whole thing flipped around.
“I spoke briefly to Jon Rudkin [Leicester City’s director of football] and he said he was bearing me in mind if they were thinking of an interim manager.
“But it was only a five minute chat with him and I think that already by that stage they wanted a permanent manager in.”
Of course, in the end, Rodgers took up the reins at Leicester, meaning there was no need for an interim manager, but how do you think Lennon would have fared in the English Premier League?
Could he hold his own in England’s top-flight?
