Celtic fans send instant response to Arsene Wenger leaving Arsenal

Arsene Wenger announced he would be quitting as Arsenal manager at the end of the season and  Brendan Rodgers was installed as one of the favourites for the job.

However, most Celtic fans are defiant, saying that it’s just a case of the media stirring up trouble, especially after Rodgers committed his future to Celtic recently.

Speculation will be rife until the new manager is announced, with Arsenal saying that this will be done as soon as possible.

And this won’t be helped after Dermot Desmond, Celtic’s majority shareholder, said they wouldn’t stand in his way if he wanted to join Arsenal.

The north London club has said it won’t make any more statements on the next manager until the new man is announced.

Celtic fans hope that Rodgers love for Celtic and desire for ten-in-a-row will keep him north of the border, but it’s going to make for a very interesting few months, and some are worried that he’ll be going if Arsenal come calling.
