Brendan Rodgers has been appointed Leicester City’s new manager after leaving his job at Celtic.

The Northern Irishman has signed a contract until June 2022 and succeeds Claude Puel, who was sacked on Sunday after 16 months in charge.

It marks a Premier League return for Rodgers, who previously managed Liverpool and Swansea City.

“I’ll give my life to make the supporters proud of their club,” Rodgers said.
