Brendan Rodgers has dismissed speculation linking him with the Leicester City job.

Speaking to the media, as reported by the Independent, Rodgers confirmed he is remaining focused on the job in hand at Celtic.

It is the time of the year where you get players and managers get linked with clubs and whatnot. For me, my only concentration is here at Celtic.

Leicester as we have seen over the last few years, an incredible journey that they have been on as a club and obviously the unfortunate circumstances that they had earlier this season.

It is a fantastic club but for me at this moment in time my concentration is purely on Celtic and looking forward to the second part of this season.

Reports earlier in the week suggested Rodgers was the favourite to replace Claude Puel at Leicester City.

Pressure is believed to be mounting on the Leicester boss due to his style of play at the King Power.

Despite it yielding results this season, Leicester supporters have vented their frustration towards the Frenchman on more than one occasion.

Rodgers has often been linked with a return to the Premier League following his success in Scotland.

During his time with Celtic, he has won back-to-back trebles and is now vying for his third consecutive league title.

Many have tipped Rodgers to return to England in the near future after the consistent success he has had at Celtic.

Would you like to see Rodgers replace Puel?
