Neil Lennon will be in the Celtic dugout for Wednesday's trip to face Hearts and the rest of the season following Brendan Rodgers' sudden departure to Leicester. But he will be given the chance to win the job on a long-term basis. With the best part of three months of the season remaining, Leicester were eager to make a permanent appointment straight away and prepared to pay a compensation figure of £5m for Rodgers, who has previously managed in the Premier League with Liverpool and Swansea City.

The Scottish Herald are among the newspapers reporting Rodgers" exit, which is yet to be officially confirmed by the club - who did put out a statement on Tuesday morning confirming that they have "very reluctantly' given their manager permission to talk to the Foxes. It is understood that talks are at an advanced stage and that a deal in principle has been agreed between all parties, paving the way for Rodgers to take charge of his first game as Leicester manager at Watford on Saturday.

News of Rodgers' sudden departure will come as a boost to Rangers, who now sit eight points behind their fierce rivals in the Scottish Premiership table. When he left Hibernian they were in eighth place in the league table.
