Celtic took apart Motherwell - eventually - on Sunday at Celtic Park. Will this stand as Rodgers' last game at Parkhead?
Former Celtic midfielder Murdo MacLeod told BBC 5Live: "I’m shocked. I had a discussion about it last night, and I just felt it was too early towards the end of the season. But this is still too early if Brendan is going to go for three trebles in a row. I felt that he would go to the end of the season at the very worst to leave Celtic, but to go at this time is a shock.
"Managers always think there’s a different challenge somewhere else. Obviously he’s going to a club like Leicester, who is mid-table – albeit they were the Champions recently – but it won’t happen again for them we don’t imagine."
With five Scottish Premiership matches on tomorrow night, press conferences have been taking place around the country.
Fellow Northern Irishman Stephen Robinson, the Motherwell manager, was speaking to BBC Scotland's Jane Lewis at this morning's briefing at Fir Park.
"I have total respect for Brendan," he said. "If he leaves it's a big loss for Scottish football because I think he's a fantastic manager. I have no idea of (Brendan's) thought process behind the move (to Leicester).
"All I know is he's an exceptional manager and he's been very good to me. When I was having a difficult time he was the first person to pick up the phone, so I have the upmost respect for him, and it's a loss to Scottish football.
"When you win the trophies that he's won he's got to be good for the game to have managers like that in the game."Copyright: SNS
"I will give everything I have and do all I can to bring our supporters exciting, entertaining and winning football," said the Northern Irishman.
"The club has been in magnificent shape in recent years and has collected silverware regularly during this time.
"My objective now, of course, is to continue this work, to keep us at the top and again make our mark in Europe."Copyright: SNS
Let's take you back to where it all started for Celtic and Rodgers.
It was 25 May 2016, the sun was splitting the skies and crowds gathered at Celtic Park in their thousands.

What a ridiculous claim, of course he does (Who else brings me my Little Mix calendar?), however, Scottish sport journalist Hugh Keevins sums things up quite nicely.
While we are of course keeping an eye first and foremost on what happens with Brendan Rodgers and his discussions with Leicester City, it is worth noting growing rumours that former Celtic and Hibernian manager Neil Lennon could be the man to replace him. Even on a temporary basis.
During his four years as manager from 2010 to 2014, Lennon won three league titles and two Scottish Cups.Copyright: SNS
- Quote Message: It’s a surprise. I don’t know what Brendan’s thought process was. I know he was very good for Celtic. I know he was on the brink of doing something quite spectacular. In some ways I will be sad to see him go. He has been good for the game up here. But things change and times move on and he has obviously decided he wants a new challenge. They are a Premier League club in England so I can see the attraction from Craig Levein Hearts manager and former Leicester boss

Brendan Rodgers spoke to BBC Sportsound on Sunday before the club's victory over Motherwell, where he said: "My job is to concentrate on the football aspect, and that is with Celtic."
However, when asked about it again following the match, Rodgers refused to comment before ending the interview.

Depending on how talks progress, it is not out of the question Brendan Rodgers could be at the King Power for Leicester's game against Brighton later today.
For guidance, the club say a Wednesday news conference is unlikely, with Thursday looking a more probably day for Rodgers to be unveiled.
News broke first thing this morning that Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers was given permission by the club to speak to Leicester City about their vacant manager's post.
Celtic have recently released a statement, saying: "Celtic Football Club today confirmed that it has been approached by Leicester City FC to speak to Brendan Rodgers with regards to their current managerial vacancy.
"Brendan has indicated to the Club that this is an opportunity he wishes to investigate further and therefore, very reluctantly, the Club has granted him permission to speak to Leicester City."Copyright: SNS
