It will be interesting to see if they appoint a caretaker manager until the end of the season.
BBC pundit Chris Sutton believes Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is a target for Leicester City and he could leave the Scottish outfit in the summer to take over at King Power Stadium.
He said: “We’ll find out now if this really is Brendan Rodgers’ dream job. Leicester is a very, very attractive job. I think Brendan will be OFF!”.

Leicester City is certainly an attractive proposition for any manager and it would be a massive step up from Celtic as well.
It will be interesting to see if the Scottish outfit can hold on to Rodgers beyond this summer.
Sutton’s comments will certainly worry Celtic fans. The former Liverpool boss is a fan favourite at Parkhead.
Rodgers has done an excellent job at Parkhead so far and he is expected to do a domestic double again this season.
Losing him would be quite a blow for the Scottish champions. They are unlikely to find someone better with their resources.
