Burke Backs Lennon And Feels Nothing From Rodgers Exit.

Rodgers has been replaced by Neil Lennon at Parkhead

On-loan Celtic winger Oliver Burke is not disappointed by Brendan Rodgers’ departure, although he wishes his former boss well at Leicester City.

The 21-year-old Scotland international, who grew up in Melton Mowbray, only spent two months with Rodgers, moving to Parkhead on loan from West Brom at the beginning of January.

“We’ve been fairly calm about what’s been happening. It’s part of football – managers come and go.

“Personally I’m still happy here. I’m enjoying my football. It’s a massive club with great fans and great people.

“I don’t think it (Rodgers’s departure) changes anything. I’m very happy. As long as I’m playing football and enjoying myself I don’t care who the manager is.

“I wouldn’t say I was disappointed that Brendan has gone,” added Burke, who played for Mowbray Rangers as a youngster before being snapped up by Nottingham Forest’s academy.

“I still feel I can learn a lot from the new manager and I’m looking forward to working under him.

“I’d never met him (Lennon) before but he seems really good, really passionate about the club. He knows what it’s all about so he’s the right man for the job.

“I’ve not had the chance to talk to Brendan yet but obviously I wish him all the best because he’s been great to me.

“He brought me to Celtic and gave me my opportunity, so I’m very thankful to him and I hope he’s successful.”
