Brendan Rodgers Did Not Leave Celtic Healthy – Former Bhoy Says Don’t Blame Neil Lennon

 




Former Celtic and Scotland star Alan Rough does not believe Brendan Rodgers left the Bhoys in a healthy state and as such is unwilling to lay the blame for the side's stuttering form at the feet of interim boss Neil Lennon.

Rodgers opted to leave Celtic to answer the call of Premier League side Leicester City at the end of February, shocking many Hoops fans.
 

 



His replacement Lennon kept the show on the road, with Celtic winning their eighth consecutive Scottish Premiership title and also reaching the final of the Scottish Cup, where they will play Hearts.

But performances and results have often been less than convincing, and Celtic were dominanted by rivals Rangers on Sunday, with the Gers running out comfortable 2-0 winners.
 


For Rough, Lennon should not be in the firing line.



The former Bhoy believes that Rodgers did not follow the trait of a good manager in that he did not leave the club in a good place.

"If the Celtic fans are honest enough [then they know] they've been stumbling along for the last two or three months, even when Brendan Rodgers was here they weren't as convincing as what we saw before", Rough said on PLZ Soccer.
 


"I don't lay that on Neil Lennon at all. He's inherited the players.

"I always say the sign of a good manager is when he leaves a club, he leaves it healthy.

"I don't think Brendan Rodgers left that club healthy at all, with some of the players coming in.

"I think he targeted individuals and never looked at the collective of the whole squad"
, he added.

Celtic will have a chance to return to winning ways in their final Scottish Premiership game of the season at the weekend when they entertain Hearts.
