Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been linked with a return to the Premier League with Leicester City, with talks reportedly ongoing between the Foxes and Scottish giants Celtic.
While supporters north of the border will be disappointed that Rodgers won't be the man in charge to lead Celtic to a historic 10th league title in a row - both of the Old Firm clubs have won nine before - fans in the East Midlands should be excited about what's to come.

With 46-year-old Rodgers at the helm, however, the Foxes could be in a fantastic position to not only rekindle their feel-good factor but also build the foundations of a club that wants to fight for their place in the top half of the Premier League and beyond.
What's interesting with Rodgers is that he was actually ahead of the curve when it came to the current trend of modern goalkeepers, where the likes of Manchester City's Ederson and Jordan Pickford at Everton have a part to play when their sides have possession.
As things stand right now, if the move happens it looks like the transition isn't going to be seamless for Rodgers, and no one expects him to take to life at the King Power Stadium like a duck to water in his first week.
Leicester City are in no danger of being relegated, so Rodgers will be given the rest of this season to plan for the next, where he can really implement his style on a group of players once the 'dead wood' has been moved on.
Rodgers' transfer history should fill Leicester fans with some hope too, even if his track record shows that he can strike gold just as often as he can sign a number of 'flop of the season' contenders.
At Swansea, unearthing players like Leon Britton, Scott Sinclair, Michel Vorm and even Gylfi Sigurdsson showed that the 46-year-old had a keen eye in the transfer market, helping to sweep some of their less successful signings under the rug.
But it was at Liverpool where his yo-yoing of transfer success really stood out the most.
Rodgers' journey through management has gone somewhat against the grain in the modern footballing landscape, largely because he hasn't got a wealth of professional footballing experience behind him outside of Northern Ireland because he was forced to retire at an early age.
His early managerial stripes were all earned at Reading between 1994 and 2004. Rodgers was the assistant to the likes of Alan Pardew, Steve Coppell and a handful of others during his decade in
