The Northern Irishman secured back-to-back trebles in his first two campaigns at Parkhead and laid the groundwork for a third before he departed for Leicester in February this year.

"I've said it many times, it was incredibly difficult," he told the Daily Record. "It was a really tough call from a personal perspective and a professional one because my relationship with everyone at the club was great from the boardroom to the dressing room.

"But perhaps now people will have a better understanding of why I made the choice to go when I did. I had a lot to think about at the time. The players were absolutely phenomenal for me in my time there. We were on this great journey together. We created a culture which I loved coming into every day. And we were winners.

"We won - we were relentless at it and relentless in our work - and we had success together. So for me to then make the decision to leave them behind was not an easy thing to do. But I felt I had taken it as far as I could in that time. I then had a decision to make about going into a new project at Leicester where there is an ambition there and there are challenges that I would be excited by."

The Sun says Burnley are lining up a cut-price 1million deal for Bitton.

Dyche is a keen admirer of Bitton and wants to try to sign him in January to boost his options in a number of areas.

The versatile 28-year-old, who stands at 6ft 4ins, primarily operates as a centre midfielder but can also play at centre-back.

Bitton's Celtic contract expires in the summer and no new deal has yet been put on the table by the Scottish Premiership champions.

Rodgers has questioned whether he was properly backed in the transfer market during his Anfield tenure.

The Foxes manager was speaking after victory over Arsenal: "I think if you look when I was in Scotland [with Celtic] we had defensive records as well.

"At Liverpool of course we were very good going forward, you have to ask did I have the players to defend how we'd want to defend? I think now at Liverpool they obviously invest a lot of money to get those types of players in.

"Here I've got a top-level centre-half in Jonny Evans, a young player in Caglar [Soyuncu] beside him who's amazing. We've got a top European goalkeeper."

The Gunners made their move for the Scottish left back this summer, signing the 22-year-old on a long term contract.

Rodgers, who was manager at Celtic until early this year, said the Gunners' interest dated back to 2016.

"Peter [Lawwell, Celtic chief executive] had said to me - and he was very honest about it - there was a possibility of Kieran going to Arsenal, but there was no rush for Celtic to sell him, and there was a big offer at the time," Rodgers told reporters.

"So I spoke to Kieran, told him I wanted him to stay, to be a big part of what we were doing, and between him and the club, a new deal was agreed, and he stayed until he went in the summer.

"He's gone into Arsenal, a really competitive team and a huge club, and it takes that little bit of time to settle.

"He's gone from one big city to another, leaving behind his family and friends in Glasgow, so it's been a period of adaptation for him.

"I've got no doubt he will do very, very well in his time."

<![CDATA[Leicester boss Rodgers: Tierney will adapt to PL]]> <p>Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers believes that Kieran Tierney will have no problems adapting to the Premier League.</p><p>The former Celtic left back is still finding his feet with the Gunners, as he has been in and out of the starting lineup.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/leicester-boss-rodgers-tierney-will-adapt-to-pl-4303508?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BCeltic'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers believes that Kieran Tierney will have no problems adapting to the Premier League.

The former Celtic left back is still finding his feet with the Gunners, as he has been in and out of the starting lineup.

But Rodgers believes that after a few months, Tierney will find his best form and make the left back position his own.

The Leicester boss worked with Tierney at Celtic for the past few years.

"As a player, in the first week working with him, I could see after two or three days why there was a lot of clamour for him," said Rodgers to reporters.

"From that moment he was absolutely brilliant for me. He became stronger, more powerful, very aggressive in his game.

"He worked hard every single day but he was also a strong boy mentally, and he had a lot of good mentors. Scott Brown was an incredible captain for me, and he [Tierney] took on that mantle to try and be like him.

"Every day in training he was very focused on becoming better, and obviously he loved Celtic as a club. He supported the club, and that gave him that extra one per cent every time he played.

"So as a player he was fantastic, and he captained the team for me on a few occasions as well, but also a great boy, very humble, just wanting to be the very best he can be."

Once again, Ciro Immobile put the Aquile in front, but they managed to lose 2-1.

It was just like the game in Glasgow, we started really strong and then fell away. We relaxed and they started to press, equalising on the first shot on goal," confessed Parolo.

We had more scoring opportunities and deserved to win. Unfortunately, in Europe you need to be wide awake to the last second and this defeat means we now have to wait for other results to go our way.

As usual, we don't make the most of our chances and in Europe, you have to be more clinical. The Celtic goalkeeper was decisive yet again, but we lacked the determination to finish our chances."

Once again, Ciro Immobile put the Aquile in front, but they managed to lose 2-1.

We should've received a penalty and the fact it wasn't awarded is astonishing. It would've allowed us to go back in front," Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.

I liked the spirit of the team overall, but we should've scored a second goal when we had the many chances and be more determined. If you create that many opportunities, one goal just isn't enough.

We go home with zero points from this match and are probably out of Europe. It has to also be said, we did our fair share to trip ourselves up over the two games with Celtic, who are a quality side and to their credit never give up."

The Daily Mail reports Leicester paid Celtic nearly 9million in compensation when they hired Rodgers as manager in February.

The Northern Irishman's mid-season departure - with Celtic on course for a third consecutive domestic treble - was hugely controversial at Parkhead, with Rodgers vilified by supporters for his decision.

But Celtic's annual report revealed that Leicester had forked out 8.8million after persuading Rodgers to move to the King Power Stadium, where he is nearly nine months into a three-year contract worth about 5m per year.

Davidson spent last week visiting Saints and was also at Liverpool earlier in the season.

As well as Wolves, English Premier League rivals Leicester are also thought to be keeping tabs.
