Former Celtic striker Charlie Nicholas has said Celtic are a better team under Neil Lennon than they were under Brendan Rodgers.

The Sky pundit watched the Hoops’ resounding 4-0 win against Aberdeen at the weekend and was left impressed by the performance of Lennon’s side.

Celtic currently sit at the top of the Premiership as well as their Europa League group.

During his time as Celtic gaffer, Rodgers saw the Scottish Champions undefeated in 47 domestic games and cemented their status as ‘the Invincibles’ back in the 2016/17 season and led them to win seven trophies in a row.

He left the Celtic in February for a move to Leicester City and Lennon returned as manager for the second time where he led the club to win an historic treble Treble.

In his Daily Express column, Nicholas wrote that Lennon has proved wrong those who doubted he was the man for the job after Rodgers’ exit.

He said: "Neil Lennon has taken Celtic up another level from the Brendan Rodgers era.

"The first 45 minutes at Pittodrie was as good a performance as I have seen in a long time.

"Yes, the squad he inherited from Rodgers was superior to every other team in Scotland, but he has improved it.

"He has adopted the technical side of the game that Rodgers built and added speed and urgency, with defenders also getting involved.

"The Hoops have strength in depth in all positions. The only player you would say is guaranteed to start every game is Odsonne Edouard, but Lenny has options all over the rest of the pitch.

"There was some negativity from supporters when the Northern Irishman was appointed on a long-term basis in May but he has wiped away all of that now.

"People will talk about Rodgers' achievements at Parkhead and the Invincible campaign that saw them go through 47 domestic games in 2016/17 without defeat, but Celtic were starting to go backwards in his final season.

"Rodgers is a sensational coach and is proving that with Leicester City in the Premier League, but Lenny has built on those foundations at Celtic and made the team better."
