The Northern Irishman arrives at King Power Stadium with an impressive reputation on both sides of the border, having also taken charge of Liverpool, Swansea City, Reading and Watford during his managerial career.
Rodgers stunned the SPFL leaders when he chose to walk away from the club yesterday to become the manager of Leicester City.
Rodgers has signed a deal until 2022 with the Foxes.
"This is a club that means a hell of a lot to me - as a player and as a manager".
Rodgers guided Celtic to two Scottish Premiership titles as part of seven domestic trophies during his time in Scotland, with the club now eight points clear at the top of the table. I know it's an old cliche, but we'll just take it game by game.
Don't get me wrong, we have plenty problems of our own.

The entire fallout in the wake of Rodgers' exit has yet to fully play out and all eyes will be on Tynecastle this evening to see what kind of response we'll see from Celtic on the pitch. "But we have a game on Saturday and there is still something possible", said Siewert, with the Terriers still 11 points off safety.
Celtic is a club that's a huge club worldwide, a renowned club, and I loved working with the players there.
However, we've been given a lifeline in our season and it's up to us to seize the opportunity for ourselves.
However, not even the lure of a third treble or breaking the Scottish record by winning 10 league titles in a row was enough for Rodgers to reject the riches and prestige of a return to the Premier League. He has his way and it's been fantastic, and I have my way.
